Garter Menagerie is a beautiful pen and ink original on canvas board by photorealistic illustrator Dara Vandor. Depicting lingerie heaped together so as the layers of silk, satin and lace intertwine. Painstakingly produced over several weeks with small dots and dashes, Garter Menagerie is truly is a photorealistic masterpiece. Dara’s work is exclusive to Runway Gallery in the UK.
In her own words:
It’s all pen. Everything I do begins and ends with tiny crosshatched strokes of pen on canvas. Nothing more, nothing less. No paint, no photography. Just pen. The medium itself seems ordinary: it produces small, intimate gestures, being a tool most of us use often, for daily tasks. Yet when tens of thousands of tiny strokes are marshalled en masse, they begin to assume a life of their own.
Dara Vandor’s Garter Menagerie original comes framed in aluminium.
