The Hat Shop in the Souk

Giclee Print


Referred to as the 'Red City', an array of apricots, corals and deep neon oranges are intensified by the contrasting and cavernous black interiors of the souk. A multicoloured array of goods enhanced by the use of bold etchings and stencilled abstracted shapes stand out against the backdrop of the dusty market square.

Each giclee print uses archival quality 320gsm Hahnemuhle paper and archival lightfast inks. All giclee's are hand signed and released as an edition of 50. The image size is 70x70cm, the paper size is 84x84cm.All prints are unframed and we strongly advise to frame using museum glass - a conservation grade UV anti-reflection glass, giving only 1% light reflection which also provides up to 99% UV protection.

Kathryn Matthews studied Visual Art at the De Montfort University in Leicester (1990-93). She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and internationally with shows in New York, Dubai and Paris. The artist is best known for her fresh perspectives of British coastal scenes and her vibrant colour palette inspired by her extensive travels. The stripping and re-application of layers and glazes and bold textural mark making gives the work a luminous and often ethereal quality.
