Ode to Sally Round
A Becky Lee Interiors and Anneke Stewart original collaboration.
Mandalas are present in many ancient religions; spiritual geometric configurations that aim to represent our relationship to the infinite. They draw the viewer in, creating an opportunity for contemplation. Anneke has adapted the kaleidoscopic nature of the mandala seeking to provoke a translation of the essence of the given subject matter. Anneke believes art has the power to influence the energy of the viewer so with that in mind she aims to create artwork that has a positive presence.
The hero piece of this first collection. Becky’s father’s cousin Sally Spence was a fabulous creative who worked for Christchurch based fashion designer Fanny Buss in the 1970s. Sally worked as a textile artist, hand painting and block printing elaborate designs onto the garments - many of which now grace museums around the country including Te Papa. The background of this piece features a gorgeous silk kaftan painted by Sally which Becky inherited from her grandmother. The flowers in this piece are gifted Peonies plus Old Roses, Alstromerias and Daisies foraged from the Red Zone.
