Preparing for the Exhibition

The Water Lilies series started with a visit to Paris, the Musee D’Orsay and Musée de l’Orangerie to see The Impressionists and Monet’s Waterlilies. Fiona returned to nature as a source of inspiration after extending the Beach Series and introducing the Bathers, which were explorations of Impressionist art through the Cut Paper method she has perfected. Leaving Only Footprints is a fine example of a new realism and use of new colours from Italian papers. The secret of good paper art is mostly technique, precision with cutting using a scalpel, and using fine grade multiple shades of papers with their subtle and strong colours is essential. The River Bathers explored refraction in water and featured the water lilies that became the locus of Fiona’s next series. Back to life, water birds and creatures in an eruption of colour and light, the expressions of animals serving as judgement on the viewer and yet giving you the sense that nature is not aware of your presence. The first of these works, The Great Egret was a return to large scale statements about nature.

The works that followed form the Water Lily Series. These have been selected for Exhibition in July – August 2023 and are now available as original framed works exclusively at the exhibition, or in our new range of stunningly beautiful Giglee Prints with ice-white mounting boards.

In celebration – for just a few days we are offering FREE POSTAGE on all qualifying Giclee Print orders for a few days with a gift of £10 off for any order over £50. The coupon code is PF992 – act quickly as there are a limited number of coupons available.

Hope for Turkiye

I was inspired by the extraordinary courage and bravery of the Turkish and Syrian people who came together to help save as many people as they could find under the enormous blanket of rubble after the earthquake devastated and destroyed large parts of their Country. 

I needed to create an image that would resonate universally by showing what is truly important to our existence when our lives are threatened by external forces. For me that was a mother hugging her children close, grabbing their family animals and favourite toys to find sanctuary during this shocking time.

 I wanted to capture the truly heartbreaking impact of what an earthquake brings, devastating chaos, pain and suffering, but also amazing unity, solidarity and humanity at its best.  Helping those in needs. What an amazing act of kindness to see that despite being under fierce Russian bombardment Ukraine still sent some of their own recovery teams to help Turkey. 

The posters are A2 – packaged in a hardened tube and cost £20 – now available

For every poster sold £5 will be donated to a Turkish and Syrian humanitarian aid charity.

Tributes to Ukraine Artists

Cut Paper Tribute to Lyubov Panchenko
Cut Paper Tribute to Maria Prymachenko

Despite extreme opposition, Lyubov Panchenko dared to celebrate her Ukrainian identity through colorful folk art collages. Tragically, the 84-year-old artist died during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Not only is Maria Prymachenko among the 20th century’s great self-taught artists, she is an icon of Ukrainian national identity. Her fantastical paintings, praised during her lifetime by the likes of Pablo Picasso, are now found in some of the country’s most important museums. Her work has also been featured on postage stamps and her likeness is immortalized on commemorative coins.

You can now purchase stretched canvas and giclee prints of these and other Ukraine works.

Derby artist raises funds through striking postcards

Fiona Scott-Wilson, an artist from Derby, has been busy raising funds for the Red Cross by creating a striking artwork.

Fiona said: “Precious Peace…. is my new cut paper designed to sell as an art poster with proceeds going to the Red Cross and postcards to bombard this Government to do more.

“I’m putting ‘Shame on you… do more’ on the back of the postcard.

“I will be printing a large batch of posters for people who may want to contribute to this tragic humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

“Designing this helped me in a small way. All artists have a visual voice and can convey many emotions without words. Please help if you can.”

The poster can be bought for £10 and a batch of six postcards for £5, all through Fiona’s website.
