TANNING DRAUMALAND - SKYJUM - By Kristjana S williams


Item Description

Inspired by one of the most exploratory artists of her generation, Dorothea Tanning, this fascinating artwork takes you on a journey from the fantastical to the abstract, inviting you to use your own imagination to understand the scene before you. Immediately the eye is drawn to the mother and child pair - the daughter's hair standing on end, as in many of Tanning's artworks - while they watch an unsettling scene of a bird trapped in the tree trunk. But why? Multiple windows and doors whisper of secrets within, watched closely by all-seeing flowers amid metamorphosing structures. The dimensions blend, and mirrored creatures peak out at the scene yet their presence continues the narrative; a giant hand stretches out, pen in hand, looking for inspiration.



Kristjana S Williams is an Icelandic born artist who studied graphic design and illustration at Central St. Martins. Her work consists of striking compositions combining Victorian engravings with bold colours and illustrations. The main themes of her works are based around exotic botanical and wildlife imagery in contrast to her views of the stark surroundings she grew up with in Iceland. Williams has also produced commissioned pieces, including a 21st century tapestry depicting London, commissioned for The Shard and designing the infamous Christmas displays for Fortnum & Mason's.
