‘Weeds feed bees’ is a Limited edition hand coloured collagraph print by Vicky Oldfield. Each print is individually painted, making every one unique.
Vicky Oldfield the artist is renowned for her distinctive pictures; the subjects are the story of her fascination with life, whether a still life on a rainy day or a collection of found objects from a walk with her dog, through the British countryside. Vicky Oldfield’s works are produced by a variety of materials: wire, etching, oil sticks, tissue paper and coloured card. A collage is made up with these materials and then placed in a metal press. A print is taken of the design and then reworked with colour on top. Her flower designs are bold and striking there is nothing wilting about these compositions what so ever Vicky Oldfield has exhibited twice in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, selling her entire editions on preview night, she is regularly selected for the major London competitions and shows.
Vicky is an artist and printmaker who likes to find beauty in the everyday – some weeds on a road side, or a cluttered windowsill can set off a new collection. She treasures both the eccentric and the ordinary, inspired by collections of found objects and natural forms; she is fascinated with the structure and design found in flowers and plants, often redrawing the same plant many times over to explore the subtle variations in its form.
Thanks to the process itself, Vicky is able to make small editions of the image; each edition will vary within its run due to the process itself and her desire to experiment. Each print produced is then unique.
After leaving school, Vicky attended Art College and then worked as a commercial designer in wallpaper and textiles in both London and Paris before becoming a full time artist in 2008.
Her work has been exhibited in many major shows including the Royal Academy Summer exhibition and The Royal Society of British Artists, she has also exhibited in America and Japan. Her work can currently be seen in many galleries across the UK.
