Flower Study Collage I forms part of a series of artworks by multidisciplinary artist, Lora Avedian. Inspired by a collection of 17th century hand cut collages from the Ottoman Empire, Lora has created her own collection of one-off collages exclusive to The New Craftsmen. Flower Study Collage I was modelled on locally grown Echinacea and Rudbeckia flowers handpicked by a sustainable florist in Lora’s local neighbourhood, Balham, in South London. The collage is framed in an ash wood frame.

Process

Lora begins the process of her artworks by creating texture and colour on acid free paper using a combination of gouache paint, coloured pencil, and pastels. Each piece is then hand drawn and cut, later to be arranged as part of the collage. Lora’s collages are handmade in her studio, and are drawn from flowers which grow in the UK.
