‘Snowflake’ is a 2 colour Screen Print by contemporary artist Cassandra Yap. Printed onto 310gsm Southbank Smooth Paper, and hand finished with an iridescent layer, the print is from a limited edition of 60 and 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.
For ‘Snowflake’, Yap has created a twinkling, Christmassy crystal, crafted from a collage of erotic images: scantily clad women pose in provocative positions, to make the shape of a snowflake. Washed with a soft blue tone, and finished with a sparkling, iridescent layer, Yap’s print might be mixing naughtiness with festive cheer, but this is one that won’t be going away with the Christmas decorations come January: bold, beautiful, and iconic, you’ll want to keep ‘Snowflake’ up all year round.
