Nymphaeaceae

This is the world of water without land or sky. The yellow flag irises and ranunculus have bloomed and now it is the season of the waterlilies. The flowers are in bud, but their leaves provide shelter for the fish, tadpoles, newts and dragonfly larvae. The trickle of water spills over rocks into the pond. A breath of wind and water boatmen stir the surface, a glint of sunlight and a flash of gold. A fleeting moment captured.

Nymphaeaceae is an original Monotype print (a one-off, never repeatable) printed using oil-based inks on Somerset paper. It is float mounted and framed with a limed ash wood frame using conservation quality materials.

It is exhibited in the Summer Show: 16 July – 8 October 2022   Open: Wednesday – Saturday, 11am-5pm at MAKEsouthwest, Riverside Mill, Bovey Tracey, Devon, TQ13 9AF.   hello@crafts.org.uk   01626 83222
