This is a mixed media series making use of one stunning vintage damask flower motif. The damask pattern has been tweaked, re-scaled, painted, drawn on and printed over, covered with paper, and printed as a Cyanotype. All in an effort to simplify the subject to the essence of pure pattern design. These pieces all become reminiscent of textiles or wallpaper which amplify the artistry with painterly techniques. They allow the viewer to compare hand-made to machine-made. When this collection is hung it creates an imaginative and cohesive space. All together this series is a collection of “royal” wallpaper that goes beyond simple surface into a realm of a glorious interior, where mark making and the power of artistic gesture reign.
