I will fade - natural pigment screen print

For this limited edition screen print I have prepared a special ink with natural pigments from plum tree bark (Prunus cerasifera). Natural dye pigments are less lightfast than synthetic ones, more vulnerable... but full of life. The pale pink color created for this piece is skin like, a blush soft tone. Sooner or later we all will fade as this piece of art.

Withered

The beauty of transformation, faded, dried out, wrinkled.  Digital photographs with no styling or post editing. A flower bouquet that I bought for my studio is once withered hung on a rope of my studio patio. Some flowers are hanging, other falling down or in delicate balance with their dried stems.
