Mabrie Ormes - Vertical Sunflower Cluster
Vertical Sunflower Cluster is composed of 5 separate oil painted and varnished canvases, arranged in a vertical stack, with @ 1 inch between them. Once it is hung on your wall, it measures 68 inches tall by 20 inches wide. This big yellow sunflower is pleased to be at the top of her game. Various angles of view on her leaves and stalk set her off nicely. A “cluster” presents one subject from several points of view. It is part painting and part sculpture. Originally the idea came to me when I wanted to make large works and had no place to store them. Now I choose this format for its versatility and the surprises it has to offer. Vertical Sunflower Cluster will arrive on your doorstep in a medium-sized box, which I have constructed myself and which boasts a double wall and lots of bubblewrap. I will handle and ship it to you for no extra charge or hand deliver it AND hang it, if you like, within 35 miles of my studio in Ashland, OR. If you live in the Seattle area, I will be visiting your city between May 18 and 24th. I would be happy to hang your piece myself during that time.
