Product story

Coleman's work contrasts the abundance of nature with the carefully measured environment of ideas to depict a dynamic third territory. Throughout her practice, the use of certain repeated motifs and marks hint at the examination of nature in detail. Chine-collé, a collage technique which uses thin pieces of Japanese paper, adds a further subtle dimension to the monochrome palette of this print.


The RA Editions programme generates valuable revenue for the RA and in particular the RA Schools.​​

Coleman’s imagery celebrates nature alongside an underlying preoccupation with human behaviour, responses and memory. Her use of certain repeated motifs and marks throughout her practice hint at the examination of nature in close-up; water and foliage are often suggested in works which have a sense of ‘ordered chaos’ about them. Chine Collé, a collage technique which uses thin pieces of Japanese paper, adds a further subtle dimension to the monochrome palette of this print.

All proceeds from the sale of RA Editions prints go directly to support the RA Schools.
