To pick a flower - a lily. This one, simply plucked out and appropriated from an Aubrey Beardsley print ( The Climax) from the Oscar Wilde play Salome.
Experiments with black and white, positive, negative, mirror, acrylic, cutting, engraving. A simple cutout from the page of a book. An object that reflects today, while still echoing the history and the period shared by Wilde and by Beardsley. (As we know, they both died prematurely, in fact within a couple of years of each other).
