The story behind the artwork
A re-imagining of Carlo Crivelli’s Annunciation with Saint Emidius where the humans have been replaced with white cockatoos, this is again dwelling into architecture the original painting has been duplicated and mirrored to enhance the feel of the drama of the perspective which is so incredibly sharp in mind bending detail.
Internally you have the lear birds, reimagined as they have flown through a still life of flowers in a vase by Ambrosious Bossheart the elder, the original Lear birds where some of the first composition collage images Kristjana created from the greatest ornithological artist of his era Edward Lear. Each of the 5 layers are hand and laser cut and slotted into a bespoke dark brown wooden frame with double anti reflective glass.
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.

Due to the construction of the dioramas, all dioramas come in specialist frames. The top layer of the artwork is placed between two sheets of non-reflective glass.
