Bloom in Soft Red & Ochre
29cm x 42cm
Natural earth pigment on Hahnemühle bamboo paper 265 gsm
Part of Undeniable, this series gives a personal and intimate reflection on seeds and blooms, in all their wilderness and possibilities. Capturing their powerful movement of growth and change in the natural world and in the caring gesture of those who plant, Ligia Oliveira magnified these elements into abstract forms that evoke both the grand scale of lush forest landscapes and the humble beginnings of each flora blooms.
In alignment with my sustainable practice, this painting uses Hahnemühle bamboo paper 265 gsm (90% bamboo, 10% cotton). Natural, non-toxic pigment from mineral sources were used, with cruelty-free brushes.

I generally ship my work unframed, but you may contact me at email@example.com for a quote regarding framing services. You may also email me a photo of the space you're planning to integrate the work in, so I can do to you a digital preview of how it would look like.
Artworks are very fragile. Therefore, one of the key elements for an artwork quality to remain through the years is UV protection. UV light has a malign impact in all sorts of colours, synthetic and natural. Therefore, artworks should be taken directly to a professional framer. I recommend the use of museum glass, which reduces reflection and gives up to 99% UV protection; standard 75% UV-protected or 99% UV-protected plexiglass. In case you're placing your work in the vicinity of large light sources, these materials ensure you artwork's longevity. I recommend it to be framed in either a white or natural wood frame. In the case of paintings on cotton paper, I recommend the artwork to be framed with a border of 3cm, with the deckled edges of the paper visible - either with a simple, mat border of lifted, so it appears to float above the mat.
