An utterly unique fan, Inspired by a 2017 painting of mine as shown. Collage and drawing with acrylic paint and inks, including metallic silver.
I've only recently started making these fans, more as art objects than fashion accessory. Still utterly unique but larger and made of two sided silk and wood. These are sturdy double sided calligraphy fans with a lovely silken surface.
On this fan I have decorated the handle with a silver finish and edging and it has then been further lacquered for protection. These fans are being bought either as movable wall decorations or costume props or as deep framed in situ for extra protection. I recommend this treatment treating them as the art objects that they are. This fan closes fully as shown.

I have included an image of the original painting.
Owing to the surface decoration, the fan is not intended to be closed repeatidly and will be damaged in an attempt to do so.
When you consider what you may pay for an original artwork similar to this....this fan is a must have for any collector who can see it's fabulous value in the creative idea and the work that has gone into it's making. Add to this...that it can also be useful... and it's a win all round.
Also, as an art object made by a known Royal Academy of London Artist, it also has provenance, meaning it is informed by my previous art and come from a body of work. This means it will increase in value over time!
In making these fans, I have dawn into and on the surface of the fan and used collage. the collage parts are always a part of my previous art, from my sculpture, painting or drawing. I like the idea of incorporating my past work into a totally different thing.
I also show an image and the medium and name of the original work in it's original form and along with the fan. Some original works may be available, please inquire. If you would like to know more and to see the work that inspired these fans please visit my artist website at www.sandlaurenson.com
