Selected studies and models for Coromandel screens with gold leafThis is a project I have been working on and thinking over for some time and I have made many small studies along with small versions of hinged coromandel style screeens. I settled on a bifold construction for a more modern, minimalist look. I now have a full scale prototype in my Paris studio (170 cm x 330 cm) with it’s first coat of primer. I am currently deliberating on which two of the 30 completed studies for this first of many screens to come. The plan with the screens is to exhbit one screen per show from here on as a centre piece that ties into the theme of the exhibition.
