Justyna Medon – Sea Florals (Deconstructed Wall Hangings Series)

£2,280.00

2023
Hand screen printed silk panel, wallpaper offcuts
120×160 cm

Sea Florals is a new piece from Justyna’s Deconstructed Wall Hangings Series, featuring her coral reef wallpaper and printed fabric. Made from approximately 596 pieces of recycled wallpaper, stitched together, and attached to hand printed silk fabric panel, each wall hanging investigates colour, texture, image and deconstructs their “order” running away from the “pattern”. The main goal is to create an art piece that corresponds with Addicted to Patterns’ hand-crafted wall hangings by using wallpaper off cuts generated by the studio and turning them into a new form.
