Two of my favourite things, Irises and the Art Nouveau style, combine here in this small Batik panel.
This 12"x8" panel 'Art Nouveau Irises' with it's striped border is now SOLD. The colours are really vibrant and the marbled, crackle background really suits the style, inspired by the Art Nouveau period 'crackle' glass. I used this one to try out the colours for the 'Art Nouveau Irises Lampshade'
'Art Nouveau Lilies' (pink) 'Art Nouveau Lilies' (white) SOLD
At the same time as working on the 'Iris' design, I worked on these ones with lilies, trying out two different colour combinations. I was particularly pleased with the the cream, blue and pink one, as well as the stylised 'whiplash' shapes in the leaves. I may well work this design into an 'Art Nouveau Lilies' lampshade in the future.
'Art Nouveau Poppy' (red) SOLD 'Art Nouveau Poppy' (orange)
These Art Nouveau inspired Batik originals, (each one 35cm x 25cm inc frame) are FOR SALE, framed and back-lit for £150 each. If you are interested in buying one, email me. I can post anywhere, just ask me and I will work out the post & packing cost.
I love the Art Nouveau 'whiplash' lines and the flowing curves. One of my favourite artists is Alphonse Mucha whose work certainly was an inspiration for all this latest work.
