Flower Fables – Intellectual Property Exhibition

The Intellectual Property Exhibition opens tonight at the KZNSA Art Gallery in Bulwer Road, Durban.  Freshly Found is so excited to be a part of this exhibition.  I’ve been working on and off for most of the year so far on this floral piece – named Flower Fables as a reference to the high percentage of book papers that have been used in its creation.  The recycled book, map, envelope and backing papers have been hand cut, folded and coloured with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

Photographing the bowl of blooms was extra poignant for me, as we’ve sold our home and have begun the long packing up process in earnest.  I felt very sentimental as I placed these flowers in the beautiful garden I have lived with for the past 22 years.  Even in mid winter, it manages to look beautiful.
