FRAGILE

We are delighted to have secured the last remaining copies of Valda’s best-selling book, ‘Fragile’. The first edition sold out; these copies are from the second edition. 

If you have not seen the book then you are missing out on a real opportunity to get an insight into Valda’s earlier work. You will see all the foundations for where she is today. The book  contains several images which have become iconic – images  she is well known for and of which only one or two editions remain in the galleries who represent her.   

To quote from her foreword…..

‘I am fascinated by all manner of contrasts and contradictions and the work in this book is an attempt to reconcile some of the conflicting aspects that are of interest to me in the landscape. In much the same way as a colour will appear most luminous when placed next to a non-colour, ie grey,  or its opposing colour in the colour wheel, so it is in nature. ‘

The images here are an investigation into how the most fragile elements seem to have their very existence challenged and their vulnerability magnified when set against the strength and solidity of their surroundings. Fragility can be conveyed in many ways. It can be expressed with light or shape or colour or movement and I hope this diversity is represented here. Paradoxically, fragile elements often appear to embody a tenacity and strength which refers back to the contradictions mentioned above.

It is the embodiment of all these characteristics that I have tried to portray in this book.

We have put together several packages for collectors of her work to not only allow you to purchase the book but also to have an opportunity to own a precious print.

We have compiled these in an effort to suit all budgets. The prints will be made by Valda on Fotospeed Fine Art paper and all will be signed by her and editioned.

The various options are detailed below - these are available for immediate dispatch world-wide.
