Eucalyptus Triple Row (Greens)
Hand Stitched natural leaf material. This artwork featured in Alice's 'Leaf Stitching' Exhibition (2015) and book of the same title.
The leaf material was gathered near my home and is not treated in any way apart from careful drying. Due to the nature of the material the colours of the leaf may slowly fade (and indeed have faded since the piece was originally photographed), but if handled gently and treated with care should remain intact for an indefinite period of time. Fading will be slower if kept out of direct sunlight.
The stitched leaves are mounted and framed in a simple acrylic frame measuring 26cm x 26cm x 4cm.
This artwork is part of the Artist Support Pledge, started by Matthew Burrows in response to Covid-19 crisis, generating income for self-employed artists who have lost free-lance work. Artists post work for sale under £200 and when they reach £1000 worth of sales through the scheme they pledge to spend £200 on another artist's work.
