Paul’s collection of new work is evolving along exciting new avenues. Here are two of his latest pieces, Fritillary, which I have made as Archival Pigment Prints on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm for him.
As ever, the prints carry an extraordinary three-dimensional quality…
Paul explains the work further:
“One of the roots of this work is a trip I made to Japan many years ago during the blossom season.
“They have a kind of ancient rite, called O Hanami, which involves journeying into the landscape and sitting under blossom trees, simply to have the pleasure of letting swirls of petals drift over them.
“The translation of O Hanami is “The celebration of transient beauty”…it might end up as the title of this work.
“These two new pieces are made using petals from a snake’s head fritillary. I used to have a poster of a Charles Rennie Macintosh drawing of them and that’s in there somewhere too.”
