The famous and most beautiful Mercat Central (the central food market of Valencia, built between 1914-1928 in the Art Nouveau style), was right on our doorstep. Food of every variety was sold by the 1000 vendors within its soaring, glass-domed architecture. The fruits and vegetables of Spain are something to behold, and here were the cream of the crop, magnificently displayed, too. This small collage started with fruit box papers I gathered up at Mercat Central, and then embellished with some lovely colours and shapes, trying to get the joy and colour of the market captured in this collage.

ORIGINAL ART WORK

These are handmade, living pieces, many with overhanging elements from the collage assembly and the pieces are mounted in a slightly raised fashion (so as to appear floating) above a white, acid-free matte. We use Museum Glass, specially coated to make the viewing of the art completely glare and reflection-free (it looks like there is no glass; all you see is the artwork), as well as being 92% UV filtering (a very important feature, due to the use of fragile, paper ephemera).

PRINTS

Similarly, the prints are designed to include a digital bright white surround “matte” to allow the piece to "float". They are Giclee printed on thick archival, acid-free 189GSM paper. A digital signature by Shelley is included.
Although the originals vary in size, we try to find the closest print size to represent the original work, and the matte increases that size by approximately 1" on each side.
