‘Sweet Tangerine' by Millicent Straker

£500.00

Millicent is a British artist based in London whose practice focuses on drawing and a variety of printmaking techniques. Millicent has recently graduated from Camberwell College of Art with a Masters in Fine Art Printmaking, and a winner of The Artichoke Print Workshop Prize 2020.

Millicent’s work is deeply informed by colour, light and the fragility of the natural world. Her work has gentle references to wide coastlines and mountainous landscapes. Her signature blends of pinks and blues invite the viewer into at times a tranquil landscape and at others into an ethereal stillness. The artist’s work stems from sketches, notes and photographs made within the landscape, which are then revisited later in her London studio to work from. This juxtaposition allows her to view the landscape and skies in the context of memory, fading to a raw essence of emotion, strong and strange. Millicent’s work is held in private collections in the UK and internationally.

FAQ

How do I hang a new piece with works I already have?

We love mixing in new works with existing are in your collection. It can be a great way to do this as part of a gallery wall or a specific place on it’s own. Buying more contemporary work and hanging this alongside traditional work you may have inherited, is a great way of modernising a space and giving these more traditional pieces new life. Our advice would be to have a common thread that runs between the 2 pieces, that ties them together - this could be similar tones or colours, or a similar theme or subject in both the works.  

Does art make a good wedding present?

We have lots of pieces that would make brilliant wedding presents. Buying art as a gift is such a meaningful present and will forever be a talking piece for that couple, and tell a story of the people that bought them that piece and remind them of their wedding. Prints are always an easy and affordable wedding gift. Or if you want to club together with some friends and buy an original framed piece, you will definitely win the prize for most unique gift!

How do I choose a frame?

This is a very favourite topic of ours - we LOVE framing!  How you frame depends on the space you’d like to hang the piece in.  If you are hanging on a neutral wall, we love to go for a colourful frame. And using an interesting moulding, be it reeded or bobbin, is a great way of adding texture to a room.  For works on paper I love a deckled paper edge - in this case I love to float or surface mount the paper, so you can see this deckled edge and then a simple wood frame. If you are trying to make a space more contemporary, framing can be a great way to add to this, like a tray frame on a large canvas piece. I also love framing traditional art works in modern frames and vice versa; a modern little print in a really traditional old antique gilt frame.

Do you sell gift cards?

Yes we absolutely do - this is the perfect gift solution for that person who either has everything, or you just can’t choose which artwork to buy for them. A lovely gift for someone to choose exactly what they would like from our large collection of art work.
