Galatea 9 by Tortora & TravezanRegular price £300.00
Galatea 9. 40"x 40", Edition of 25 Giclee Print
This 'Galatea' set by Tortora and Travezan has a warm, plastic pop, yet naturalistic sunset asthetic about it and works well in a floral, light environment.
David Tortora and Jaime Travezan use naturalism and surrealism to great effect in this set of images. The subject matter of a nude form surrounded by enlarged flowers with rich vibrant colours gives the pieces a strong spring quality and takes this naturalism further by giving at a great flowing composition, leading the eye around the piece.
