Wire and papier mache Sculpture ” Summer” inspired by the French artist Claire Basier, and her beautiful large flower paintings, full of life and movement.
Capturing the movement of walking through a flower meadow on a blustery day, the wind billowing around Summer’s skirts.
The figure is made from wire and papier mache. Her bodice and top skirt are made from strong paper painted using acrylics and silver leaf. Her hair is made from a soft neutral light coloured silk embroidery thread. Her dress is made from taffeta and organza..
