Each limited edition print will be printed on 300gsm cotton paper, with each layer of the image screen-printed in a multitude of finishes and hand embellishments, informed by her eclectic permutations of designer clothing and exotic accessories.
The prints will be available to purchase at the exhibition or from their website below. A series of events will be programmed in conjunction with the exhibition, with more details to be announced.
Opening night March 29th from 7pm with a drinks reception with thanks to Hendrick’s Gin & Fever-Tree Tonic.
