Liesl Pfeffer is a celebrated photo-media artist based in Melbourne.
This work is from her body of work entitled Hearts and Arrows (2011). An exhibition of photo-media collages and textile works depicting minerals, crystals, gemstones and diamonds. The title references diamond cutting: ‘hearts and arrows’ diamonds are said to be unmatched in precision, beauty and perfection. The works are playful and colourful interpretations of rare precious stones prized for their beauty, mystery and luxury. Bright, hard-edged photo-collages are juxtaposed beside whimsical folk art textiles. The experience of viewing the works is to be immersed in a synthetic world of facets, colour, prisms and light.
Liesl's photo-media collages have the impact of a bold graphic image but reveal finer detail upon closer inspection.
This work is sold framed in a natural timber box frame.
