‘Miss Baker’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Maria Rivans. From a limited edition of 75, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
The work of Maria Rivans is known for its mash up of surrealism meets pop-art. Her scrapbook-like collages - with their 1950s pop-culture references - have all the playful delight of an early Paolozzi, mixed with the strange surreality of a Dali, and brought up to date with a certain sophistication and quirky aesthetic, unique to Rivans.
‘Miss Cordelia’ depicts the black and white portrait of Audrey Hepburn, her stunning hazel eyes and soft pink lips picked out from the greyscale photograph. Rivans has attired the actress in an off-the-shoulder dress, which has been crafted from a sea of delicate, white daisies, as if to resemble intricate broderie anglaise lacework.
Offset against the simple shift, Rivans has adorned her head with a fabulous bricolage headdress: in the amongst tumbling flora, fauna and foliage, look out for exotic beasts, birthday cakes, vintage teapots, and retro cable cars!
