An exploration of decoration

by louisagiffard

Based on a short line in an essay about Watteau, I explored floral motifs with weaponry. I appreciate that Ex De Medici and the like have done this sort of thing before, but I thought it might be fun, and you can never be too derivative in art.

These may become etchings later, but they sure as hell won’t end up being lino. I experimented with linocut and the image ended up far too crude for the fine lines I was going for.
