ICONS I AND II

Icons I and II are based on an eighteenth-century Sèvres potpourri porcelain vase. Michael Eden has made a liberal interpretation of the vase, opening and replacing the piercing with a lattice-like structure. The original decoration, featuring leaves, flowers and a romantic bucolic scene has been replaced with Keith Haring-style silhouettes of iconic works of art, such as the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo. The soft, delicate pinks and pastel colours of the Rococo style have been updated to loud, luminous oranges, bringing the work of art firmly into the twenty-first century.
