Thank you all for the amazing response to our Ukraine Peace campaign. We have sold out of posters but still can take orders for tee shirts (as they printed on demand). We do have a small number of postcards left (so if you want to shame your MP into acting you can still order a packet of these until they run out).
But we need to draw a line, tot up the proceeds to make our charitable donations
£250 donated to Concern.org Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal £100 to Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal $125 towards funding UNICEF’s work to support children affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
total charity support £475 made possible by your support
Fiona Scott-Wilson has released a new cut-paper work and asked that all proceeds from it go to charity. FSW.Gallery has donated the printing of postcards and posters to the effort, and all proceeds of the sale of these will go to the Red Cross Ukraine Appeal, so we invite you to buy postcards in packs of 6 (for £5) and posters for £10 each (for your wall or to place in the window of your business or home) to show you support Ukraine. Postage is optional in the UK (you can select free postage on checkout or pay the cost of postage). We have also made tee-shirts with the image available (and all profits for orders for these will also go to charity).
High quality Giclee Prints with vivid colour and accurate reproduction from the original cut-paper painting or design are now being offered in the FSW Gallery Shop. Oak framed or ready-to-frame prints are now available.
After a lot of testing, research and assessment we have found an excellent printing and framing solution for high quality Giclée prints. We are now adding these to our product range. Each print is printed on archival papers and professionally framed to the artist’s specification.
Here is a sample of an A3 framed print showing a white frame (we added a blue background to contrast with the frame), with a soft white mount board.
I was inspired by my recent visit to Paris, visiting wonderful galleries including Musée de l’Orangerie and Musée d’Orsay with its wonderful impressionists. Monet, Matisse and Modigliani used magical techniques to represent light, completely original experimental artist of their time.
Impressionism is a 19th-century art movement which explored a completely new way of representation using swift, rapid strokes of the brush to create a depiction of light and movement in their changing qualities.
I had to make my own interpretation using cut-paper as a dry medium to attempt to replicate the style of the Impressionists.
