A few months ago I was contacted to complete an artwork commission to celebrate the wedding anniversary of a couple. The piece focused on the time and place that the couple met and gave me the opportunity to create a unique marker of not only their wedding anniversary but also their way of meeting.
The anniversary was their second, which is traditionally marked by Cotton. Taking this material and using the place they met as a guide, I undertook research about the place, the event and the weather, which culminated in the piece you can see below. The piece is a summation of the weather, the place and the explosion of excitement that ensued from the meeting. I used significant colours from the wedding to symbolise the importance of this meeting to their anniversary.
Here’s what Phil, the commissioner of the artwork, had to say:
“I contacted Emily ahead of my anniversary in order to get her to create something made from cotton. With very little direction Emily created a wonderful picture on canvass that really summed up the day my wife and I met! To say I was showered in brownie points was an understatement. Excellent work!”
