New Zoe Mafham prints just unpacked at Vamp - 29 July 2014

The latest triptych of collaged prints by Zoe Matham, can be bought separately or as a set. 

The triptych, 'In the Woods' is a visual journey collaged with simple shapes and a limited palette, and inspired by gothic fairy tales. The same colours are used for the people, trees and house, tying them together as part of the same imagined story, place and season. Each viewer sees a slightly different tale and the narrative also changes depending on how the triptych is hung."
