The story behind the artwork
Inspired by one of the most exploratory artists of her generation, Dorothea Tanning, this fascinating artwork takes you on a journey from the fantastical to the abstract, inviting you to use your own imagination to understand the scene before you. Immediately the eye is drawn to the mother and child pair - the daughter's hair standing on end, as in many of Tanning's artworks - while they watch an unsettling scene of a bird trapped in the tree trunk. But why? Multiple windows and doors whisper of secrets within, watched closely by all-seeing flowers amid metamorphosing structures. The dimensions blend, and mirrored creatures peak out at the scene yet their presence continues the narrative; a giant hand stretches out, pen in hand, looking for inspiration.
Kristjana captures the traditional method of dioramas by adapting her trademark collage technique; designing and giclée printing the individual elements, before intricately hand and laser cutting them and slotting the pieces into a bespoke frame and layering to create the sense of reality and depth. The result is a stunning three dimensional paper theatre graphic art piece.
Edition of 75, signed and numbered by the artist.
