This exhibition finishes at the end of this week.

Large screen print of a woman with adorned in flowers looking out at the viewer. There is a butterfly representing the transience of life and a boat to symbolise the journey we all undertake. There is a thoughtful sadness about the piece which could be read in a myriad of ways not least as a decorative expression of the seasons. The image is also in an edition of silver grey printed in black which is equally as strong. Edition of 5 each.”
