‘Deliverance Gold Leaf’ is a Screen Print on foil by contemporary artist Cassandra Yap. Printed onto 350gsm Southbank Smooth Paper, each piece has been foiled by hand for a slightly distressed effect, so each edition is unique. From a limited edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Contemporary artist Cassandra Yap merges beauty and sensuality in her breathtaking prints like no other. Using photomontage techniques, Yap explores femininity and sexuality, using images of vintage pin-up girls merged with gentle flora and fauna, delicate butterfly wings and exquisite colour palettes. Yet her work is unsettled with dark undertones: images of death and decay pervade her prints, bringing a rich, contemplative mood to her aesthetic prowess.
‘Deliverance Pink Foil’ depicts a large, vibrant butterfly, its wings crafted from softly iridescent golden foil. A closer look reveals that the gossamer insect has been carefully assembled from a collage of erotic images: scantily clad women pose provocatively across its wings, while sinister skulls nestle eerily amongst them. It’s a powerful print, full of visual splendour and strong conceptual appeal: a triumph of contemporary art.
