MIXED MEDIA ORIGINALS
This collection is comprised of a unique set of mixed media original artworks. The canvases are printed using a giclee printing technique which the artist then paints over, adding different features and individual characteristics each time.
Some prints include detailing on the artwork canvas, others as hand painted frames and in some instances both. Each piece is unique and produced at the artists discretion, making each artwork totally bespoke and individual.
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Stuart has created a series of eleven Harry Potter-inspired paintings using his signature Pop Art style under license from Warner Brothers, entitled 'Revelations: A Portrait of Magic'.
Hermione's two personalities appear here, shown by her two guises. The paintings are both complex and beautiful. The symbols of the rays coming from underneath suggest her development as she matures and transforms the opinions of those around her.
The text reading 'Reflect' invites the viewer to see Hermione as a mirror image. Hermione's face is shaded in Gryffindor house colors on the left, while on the right, we see a Hermione who is no longer defined purely by her academic achievements. Stuart's abstract representation of Hermione's growth and development defines the character's confidence in her own abilities.
