Be in to win an artist proof by photographer Emma Bass – ‘Maria Oosterwyk and Rooster’, valued at $950.
Medium: Giclee print on plywood, with 24-karat gold leaf
Dimensions: 27 x 37.5 cm
This artwork is from the miniature Zodiac series within Emma Bass’ A Little Garden series, which deviates a little from her other collections. Although the subject is still flowers, A Little Garden, blurs the boundaries between painting, photography and collage. Gone is a central vase atop a ledge – in its place are bouquets created by layering artworks by famous 17thCentury Dutch artists, such as Bosschaert, van Aelst and Breughel, along with Matisse shapes gilded in 24-karat gold.
Each artwork within the Zodiac series is further layered with a plastic animal hidden amidst the recontextualised floral compositions – a total of twelve works correlating with the Chinese Horoscope.
A Little Garden opens at ARTIS Gallery, Parnell, on Tuesday 25 February and runs until Sunday 15 March.
