Paper Wall Art ‘Hortensia Aqua’ by Amanda Deadman Art
Amanda Deadman’s paper wall art is truly awe-inspiring. ‘Hortensia’ which is the Latin name for the Hydrangea plant is the first of a new circular series. Studies of several different types of hydrangea formed the basis of several illustrations which were printed onto watercolour paper in various sizes.
The edges of the larger petals are a mix of turquoise and Payne’s grey watercolours. The centres with blue metallic watercolour. The smaller ones have their centres painted in silver metallic watercolour. The flowers are arranged in a circle on heavy watercolour paper with the larger blue flowers raised up on varying heights on tiny foam board plinths. The height of the flowers descends out from the centre, creating a domed effect.
A stunning and highly textured modern relief design reveals individual flowers on closer inspection. The piece casts different shadows and light reflections from the metallic paint depending on the direction of the light.
A white, glazed (Perspex) deep box frames the paper wall art.
