Artwork number 348 |Cyclamen Petals are amoung the most vibrant and otherworldy colours I have managed to extract from nature. Once dry their almost flurencant pink is stunning and so they need vary little assistance or support from other plants. I LOVE the Sepals from their flowers(the little leaf like petals that house the flower bud before it blooms) and when pressing the petals cant help but press these tiny little things too. So full of details and colour this piece will be a great reminder of the magic of nature.
This piece can be displayed on a wall, bench or shelf.

Lubaina Himid was born in 1954 in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
Himid makes paintings, prints, drawings and installations which celebrate Black creativity and the people of the African diaspora while challenging institutional invisibility. She references the slave industry and its legacies, and addresses the hidden and neglected cultural contribution made by real but forgotten people. In Naming the Money 2014, 100 cut-out life size figures depict Black servants and labourers who Himid individualises, giving each of them a name and story to work against the sense of the powerless mass. She often takes her paintings off the gallery wall so that her images become objects that surround the viewer. Whether working on Guardian newspapers or directly onto porcelain tableware, Himid continually subjects painting to the material of everyday life in order to explore Black identity.
Italian artist #massimouberti creates large-scale light installations that look like simple drawings. Using neon tubes and transformers, his site-specific pieces depict everyday objects, such as a window frame, chair or table. Speaking of the inspiration behind his work, Milan-based Uberti says in an interview: “I like to create architectures of light. I employ neon tubes to build places for poetical inhabitants, trying to create dream-like spaces that allow for reflection.”
A series of short clips filmed on an iPhone featuring the Scottish countryside from a train window, a T-shirt on a radiator and a cat pawing at a lamp has helped Charlotte Prodger win the 2018 Turner prize.
Prodger, 44, won for her solo exhibition at the Bergen Kunsthall in Norway, which featured two film works, Bridgit and Stoneymollan Trail. The 32-minute film Bridgit has been on display at #tate Britain as part of its Turner prize exhibition.
The film is difficult to explain. There is lots going on, a lot of it apparently randomly. It explores class, gender, sexuality and neolithic goddesses.
Prodger filmed the work over the course of a year and included footage of her at home and on her travels. Her narration includes snatches of autobiography.
Alex Farquharson, director of Tate Britain said the jury felt Bridgit was “incredibly impressive in the way that it dealt with lived experience, the formation of a sense of self through disparate references”. He said the work evoked traditions in landscape art and had psychological weight. “It ends up being so unexpectedly expansive. This is not what we expect from video clips shot on iPhones.”
