Better Than a Blender: New Art by Amy Ross May 19 2015
Tis the season of love! That's right, you've got a full calendar of wedding ceremonies and celebrations, and we know you want to give something better than a blender. We've got the perfect piece to gift to all kinds of couples: Lovebirds by Amy Ross.
Lovebirds by Amy Ross
10"x8" ($24) | 14"x11" ($60) | 20"x16" ($240) | 30"x24" ($1,200)
After a long winter (seriously, SO. LONG.), it's wonderful to celebrate spring flora and fauna, and this beautiful mix of birds and botanicals has us all sorts of twitterpated. This is our seventh (!) edition with the super talented Ms. Ross, so we reached out to collage-connoisseur Danielle Krysa of The Jealous Curator for a fresh perspective:
"One of my favorite things about collage is the act of snipping and cutting found images from different places, and then arranging those clippings into a totally new, unique composition. The bits and pieces that Amy expertly chose, cut, and arranged into this gorgeous shape have gone from being random lithographs on the pages of a natural history book to a beautiful avian love story."
Lovebirds takes a different direction from Amy's previous editions, leaving behind the merge of disparate elements for a lighter-hearted blend. Just as Amy gives new life to vintage lithographs by cutting and rearranging them, her Lovebirds edition revels in the new life brought by the arrival of spring.
With wedding season now fully upon us, we know you want to be prepared with the best gifts for your fave couples. Still eyeing the saucepan on the registry? Leave that to Grandma. Instead, give your friends something beautiful for their walls as a lasting reminder of their special day. Gifting art shows thought and care (you've put the thought in; we always take care to ensure our editions are printed at the best quality). As for this particular print: is there anything better for a wedding than an art piece that celebrates love and new life together? We didn't think so.
So go ahead—prepare your champagne toast, practice your cheesiest dance moves, and give the gift of love(birds).
