In this abstract artwork hand-made with love by textural artist Gill Hickman, four coloured embossed collages embellished with 24k gold leaf are arranged vertically in one frame to represent the four seasons of the year.
In Winter, at the top, a thin line of gold represents the slow energy of the winter months. Next comes spring, in bright green, with more gold to convey fresh new growth. in Summer bright yellow and gold fill the centre, and in Autumn, shades of brown and orange represent the falling leaves, the slowing down of the year.
The collages are made with hand-made papers from around the world, they are embossed with an etching press and when dry the gold leaf is added. The four pieces are float mounted vertically in a lime-waxed ash box frame.
