Clé d'Eiffel captures the timeless beauty of vintage Paris, invoking memories of the past with touches of today. The dimensional texture of the middle canvas reveals vintage text and printed tissue which blends perfectly with the vintage image of the Eiffel Tower which is set in a crackle finish, set on top colored and texturized corrugate. This is topped with a vintage Parisian key.
The canvas rests on an encaustic collage with the saintly image, a line drawing of the Eiffel Tower, vintage glassine envelope, other printed paper and tissue, and the ultimate tool for visiting Paris - and American Express Gold Card.
An elegant wood panel frame has been hand painted with an iridescent metallic paint that add dimension to the piece while not overpowering the beauty found within.
