‘Eliza’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Maria Rivans. Printed onto deckled edge paper and screen printed with iridescent blue, French Glass and High gloss spot varnishes, the print is from a limited edition of 50 and 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. ‘Eliza’ depicts the black and white portrait of 1940s, Hollywood starlet Gene Tierney, attired in a glamorous halter neck dress, collaged from soft bird’s feathers and sparkling diamonds.
Framing her face, Rivans has created one of her signature bricolage headdresses: in the amongst tumbling flora, fauna and foliage, look out for a host of exotic beasts - from roaring lion heads to mellow marmosets; 1950s Cadillacs; and soaring biplanes. Wild and restless, exotic and fierce: Rivans knows how to capture true femininity.
