The Dark Side Of Orchids 1

Orchids lovers across Australia were absolutely disgusted to hear about the 900 endangered species being selfishly dug up and stolen from Kings Park Conservation garden this year. One of those species is the Carbanup King Spider orchid which only grows in a very restricted part of WA and has only around 280 specimens left in the population.
I personally felt such anger over this, and I hope the offenders are caught and prosecuted. This news motivated me to create 2 mini paintings, The Dark Side of Orchids 1 & 2. The still life paintings each feature one of the poached species taken out of their natural environment. My hope is that these pieces act as a tribute to the lost orchids and help to start a discussion around conservation. There is absolutely no need to steal and trade these beautiful plants. I urge people who want to own a piece of their beauty to purchase art instead of orchids themselves, and if you know anyone trading in illegal orchids, report them!
All Original Artworks come ready to hang in a solid Tasmanian oak float frame.
Canvas or fine art paper? The biggest difference between these two materials, is that canvas can be framed without glass, whereas fine art paper requires glass for framing.Both materials are identical in colour, they are archival quality and printed on the best materials. Our meticulous and careful process means we produce a never-fading, museum quality artwork that will last a lifetime.
Paper prints are printed on 290gsm(A4-A2) or 320gsm(A1/A0) 100% Cotton Rag Archival Paper. We do not offer framing for paper prints, sorry.
Rolled canvas prints are supplied with an additional 75mm of mirror or gallery wrap printed canvas all around, to allow for the wrapping around the frame when stretched. They come rolled and packaged in a tube. Your local framer will also be able to help you stretch this and box frame it if you so wish. This is option is ideal for international orders.
Stretched Canvas prints come stretched onto a backing frame but do not include frames as seen in our promotional imagery.
If you want your artwork to arrive at your door ready to hang then our expertly framed canvas prints are the best choice. Our frames are made with premium Tasmanian oak that are raw, natural, and simply beautiful. Every framed artwork is overseen by me and my a-team to ensure your artwork will be total perfection.
