The Accidental by Ali Smith

I thought Pears Belle Helene

This work was inspired by the book, The Accidental, by Ali Smith. A story of a stranger walking into the lives of a family bearing unexpected gifts. 


The work was created using Tetrapack prints, watercoloured and collaged together digitally.


The prints were selected as part of Ferens Gallery Open exhibition and Ropewalk Gallery Print Collective exhibition.
