Intro
(...) Either alone, as a flower on strange leaves, or linked and set into a background as part of a composition. Sylvia is now introducing the first ‘yield’ of this crosspollination to a wider world. As a memory to her father and out of pure respect for him. And in order to mark, cherish and convey a beautiful moment. (...)

Artist list

Sylvia Blickman
About a year ago, Sylvia’s father Floris died. When clearing out his house Sylvia made a discovery which changed her look on the life and character of her father. Behind a fold-up bed she found treasure in the form of an herbarium, a collection of individually dried flower and plant specimens collected over many decades. A hobby which had remained virtually hidden from her. It moved her to discover that he too had a love of the fragile things of nature. This found collection triggered a ‘collaboration’ between Sylvia and her father. Like cross-pollination, elements from both were incorporated into new brooches. Either alone, as a flower on strange leaves, or linked and set into a background as part of a composition. Sylvia is now introducing the first ‘yield’ of this crosspollination to a wider world. As a memory to her father and out of pure respect for him. And in order to mark, cherish and convey a beautiful moment.
