More information about the Print
Just out of reach brings to attention the things which we desire and reminds us of the importance of the natural world. Combining imagery from advertising and fashion with nature, the artist utilises the powerful ‘selling gaze’ and uses it to transport the viewer into a fantasy world abound with rich nature and lush vegetation. The broken shards of glass symbolise the moment of realisation, when we rediscover the beauty in our natural surroundings. The use of glazes on the shards of glass and the opulence created by the 24 ct gold detail serve to question just what riches are and what is important in life.
Our greatest desires are normally the things just out of reach.
