I was so excited to finally bring this piece to life. The original sketch came together mostly a composition concept with the white of a snowy desert contrasting a dark, flowy ethereal figure. I wanted to add elements to the illustration, and the characters particularly, that would suggest a story but also allow the viewer to decide the details of what was happening.
For me, the young girl represents Spring, or nature. She's struggled well into winter to hold on but has finally reached the point of collapse where the Goddess of Winter & Death reaches out to her with a tenderness and tells her to let go and rest.
Designed in Australia, this artwork is printed on a soft woven canvas. It hangs effortlessly by wooden hangers that snap together with ease using our integrated magnets. Sounds good hey?
