One of a kind original artwork- pressed flora & mixed media on ballgown satin from London in a quality frame.
An intriguing, stylish statement piece of artwork. The name is based in part on the Latin for SILVER (ARGENTI). The fabric, 1950’s, came on the roll from a factory which had closed in London. The fabric had been untouched
We all are drawn in some way to the way silver catches the light. It’s a pure, understated colour which visually has great impact. In nature, there are hints of silver, like the sun glinting on the sea, dew drops on a leaf or web. Silver has a certain grace to it and so the pressed flowers and foilage in this piece are reminiscent of graceful curves, movement and light. Spot the pressed cornflower, delphinium, gyp, lavender, stock, feathers and vintage lace/beading. Notice how some of the ferns and leaves uncurl to reveal silver effect treasures cradled within. From a piece of art deco jewellery with diamantes to ferns from my Cornish garden which have had silver effects added.
NOTE: All flora is selected and pressed by the artist personally here in Cornwall either from her own Cornish garden which is located next to a rugged downs location or sourced from Cornwall based florists and suppliers. All lichen is sourced from the artists own garden and which grows freely there due to its location to nearby man made lakes.
