Chanel Floral Vision
The floral series is based on vintage floral wallpaper from the arts and crafts era. The piece begins with an embroidered luxury box or bag or a background created from a deconstructed bag from Chanel. The embroidery is stitched directly through the box using tonal thread to create an intriguing background. The trunk, leaves and vines are also stitched directly through the box. Flowers, birds and butterflies are then created as appliqués and collaged directly onto the background for a dimensional effect. Each piece is unique.
26" x 26" x 2" in size.
The art comes framed in acrylic and is signed and numbered by Stephen Wilson.
