This intricate artwork by Nic Joly is an honest, real, and raw depiction of love. It features a re-designed playing card embellished with words, two bronze-cast miniature figures with painting tools, and a freshwater pearl holding a flower.
Ethically sourced, hand-polished and drilled to hold an equally detailed hand-made wire flower, the glowing pearl atop a bench perfectly offsets the rest of the monochromatic scene which represents balance in love. Balance between the spiritual and ordinary is represented by the ace of spades while the colour scheme reinforces the idea that love, like life, is not just black and white.
Nic Joly’s Spring 2022 collection continues to scrutinise the theme of love in art and unites around the concept that these pieces are not just for Valentine’s Day but, rather forever, in their bold yet delicate commentary on devotion. View the two artworks in this collection here.
