‘Lost Property’ is a Silkscreen Print by contemporary artist Not Now Nancy. Form a limited edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
The work of Not Now Nancy stages a dichotomy between an Arcadian past and an urban modernity, uniting conflicting themes into a harmonious and compellingly beautiful blend. Her prints are a fusion of layers, building found antique illustrations into hand drawn elements and symbolic contemporary imagery to achieve a unique and captivating aesthetic.
‘Lost Property’ depicts a skull, just visible through a mist of golden spray paint. Mapped onto the cranium, Not Now Nancy has added a beautiful, black dragonfly, with a human eye peering from each wing, as though the oversized insect were a mask for the skeletal head. It’s a hypnotic piece, dark and haunting while saturated with breathtaking beauty.
