Artist: Czar Catstick & The Emperor's New Clothes Collective*
This particular piece is a study for the ongoing series of 'New Rose' and 'Alhambra Dreams' artworks. #2020 Vision
Hugely inspired by recent trips to Andalusia in Spain where I visited some amazing sites including the Alhambra in Granada and more recently the Cathedral and The Alcazar in Seville. Most of these blossom and flower photographs were taken within the beautiful grounds of the Alhambra and The Alcazar. Many of these original studies were used to create an extensive collection of fabric designs and artworks for both abstract and figurative patterns including the styles and designs of the amazing tiling and architectural features.
This series is based on photographs and studies which have been digitally composited and over-painted. The artworks include double exposures and manipulated effects with paint and pencil scribbles and abstracted writing including references to 'New Rose' and 'A Rose By Any Other Name' from Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet'.
