The work of fine artist Kristjana S Williams is about layering the old with the new. Her images reference traditional art and illustration, bringing them up to date with contemporary printing and collage techniques. With a clear passion for nature and colour, Williams creates landscapes and vistas of unrivalled beauty with a unique aesthetic. 'Pimavera Owl' takes Botticelli's famous 'La Primavera' and overlays beasts, butterflies and botany in Williams' characteristic, collage style. It is hard to see where Botticelli ends and Williams' begins - has she added a tiny gold locket onto one of the central figures? - in this veritable hide-and-seek of contemporary art. Bold and playful, 'Primavera Art' goes beyond novelty in this reworking of the classic, to create a print full of rich intensities of its own. This print is signed and numbered by the artist.
