The ‘Sweet Love’ (Love Hearts) by Simon Dry is an original and unique pop art collage made from discarded Quality Street wrappers. The artwork is sandwiched between art glass and light diffusing glass at the front of a deep frame (45cm x 62cm x 7cm). This allows light to shine through the sparkling image and create a beautiful coloured shadow and three dimensional effect.
Size: H:45 cm x W:62 cm
