I became interested in the idea of Christmas with its bejewelled, modern day bling and interested in Victorian and Vintage Greeting Cards only recently. They're well crafted and interesting and have the feel of a Relic about them. Of something precious from another time. I wanted to use that in a range of new artworks. To reinterpret them, this one. It fits totally with the range of works that I create using my New Art Enshrinement Treasuring process. In this layers of card are built up, sometimes with text and found objects like fabric and gemstones, Puppet Making materials and vintage jewellery with everything then carefully placed and pasted down to form a decorative, though integrated, venerating frame. These Christmas works like my others have echoes of Reliquary and Derbyshire Well Dressing and I see each as a little personal jewel, something to Treasure. They also borrow iconography and enthuse a Victorian ideal. They're a bit of an emotional journey to create. I hope this one delivers Good Wishes. A Christmas image or gift worthy of reverence. A truly Treasured Christmas and a memory to share forever. Can be hung as is as its in a tough, waterproof bag using Pegs or the Bulldog Clip as illustrated in one picture, Bulldog Clip included and or can it be conventionally framed.
