    Rivans transforms Audrey Hepburn, the darling of vintage cinema, into Gaia, the personification of the Earth and the ancestral mother of all life. References to Audrey’s Britishness – St Paul’s Cathedral, a dainty English tea cup – sit beside more exotic motifs – a plumed cockatoo, a hummingbird in flight – to capture the starlet’s globe-trotting adventures and humanitarian activism. Always alert to contradiction and opposition, Rivans offsets feminine fragility – powder pink flowers, delicate dinner plates – against Superwoman strength. But at root, Lily is as much a tale of our power as of our weakness: a reminder that we share the planet with other forms of life, and that only through harmony and humility can we discover the true beauty of the natural world.

ARTIST STORY

Maria Rivans

Maria lives and works in Brighton, UK, and is a contemporary artist best known for her bright and eclectic collages. Her scrapbook-style aesthetic is created by appropriating vintage ephemera and combining it with vivid, and often humorous, imagery. Maria adopts a fresh approach to collage by maintaining dialogue with cultures and imagery of the past and using the style to reflect the complex world we live in. Maria has exhibited in the UK and Europe, as well as Hong Kong and New York.

A NOTE FROM US

WHAT WE LOVE

We love the precision that Maria applies to the process of collating and assembling her compositions. She dedicates a large amount of time to locating the perfect imagery for each surreal artwork. Down to the smallest detail, each element of her collages are used to forge a unique identity for the figures in each piece. We particularly love how every one of Maria's collage portraits tell a unique story and create a unique narratives that bring each of Maria's characters to life.

Limited Edition

So you’ve found your perfect limited edition artwork, but what does this actually mean? Limited editions are original artworks that an artist creates in a particular print medium, such as a giclée print, screen print or photograph. Our limited edition artworks are specifically created by our talented artists with a maximum edition number in mind. The term ‘limited edition’ refers to the total number of artworks that are available for that particular piece. The edition size can vary widely between artworks, however most of the time our artists create editions in small numbers ranging from 10 to a few hundred.
