Description: Scenes through a moon gate, red. Entry in the Chinese Paper Cutting Contest. Art pen on cel & line art. © Su Schaefer 2014 Scenes seen through a moon gate on a background of Chinese fretwork in a classic overlapping circle style, bright lacquer red on white. Entry in the Chinese Paper Cutting Contest - THANKS to everyone who voted - super happy this design placed 40th out of 218 (168 votes) in a field of so many wonderful designs.
© Su Schaefer 2014

Printed a bright red on basic cotton (3rd thumbnail above), may print darker on other substrates.

See all my Chinoiserie designs.

Chinoiserie (from 'chinois' - the French for Chinese), as a style was inspired by art and design from China and other Asian countries. Characteristics include asymmetry, playful contrasts of scale, fanciful imagery and fantastic landscapes: filled with exotic buildings such as pagodas and pavilions; birds, dragons, and people in Chinese clothing. The Victoria and Albert Museum has some nice examples. The scenes in my design were inspired by a much-loved illustration - very much in the Chinoiserie style - by A. Groves-Raines in my childhood book of Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales (1st published 1950).

Art pen on cel & line art, basic repeat.
[Currently set @ Fabric: 340 ppi, Wallpaper: 200, Gift wrap: 233 ppi]

materialsgirl says: Su such a beautiful and intricate design! I too love this kind of work and also was inspired by story book illustrations in my childhood. Still have some of those books. The lattice style of this design has got me envisioning it not only in fabric but in wrought iron. Would look so beautiful in my entranceway.... ;* ) Wishing you luck in the contest!
