Anyway, the piece in question is by the lovely Lizzie Thomas a recent graduate in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics, from Brighton University. Her work has been featured in Harper's Bazaar and on (one of my fav blogs) Design* Sponge among others and she recently exhibited at London's Flow Gallery. We're expecting big things from her and here I am worrying about parting with my money!
I tried to take sneaky phone pics but my camera is rubbish. The piece is a giant forest of intricate white pine trees - which Lizzie craftily created by cutting through her sketch book with a band saw (love it!) - mounted on a black background, in a white frame. My reservation - my new flat is white - white walls, white sheets, white tiles, white kitchen, white bathroom, just decided to paint my wooden bed white today. it's all white and i'm scared my first ever art purchase will get lost in the whiteness! Will let you know what I decide!
There weren't any pics of 'my' piece on her website but her are some examples of her work.
Those that entered the house found themselves in the thick of a forest. I - Drypoint and Aquatint Etching Print. Limited edition.
They said a king once ruled the forest
