Dandelions with Bud, Small Botanical Drawing on Black Paper Made with 14K Gold

About

This delicate botanical drawing is made with 14 karat gold on black paper. The exploration of ephemerality, and the fragility of a dandelion gone to seed, its leaves and buds are the focus of this series by Margot Glass. The exquisite beauty of the humble dandelion often considered to be mundane or undesirable is discovered and elevated through close examination and exquisite drawing by the artist. This drawing is framed in a natural wooden frame. Glass draws with 14 karat gold and graphite (appearing silver) not only for the delicacy of line the metal point provides, but also for the allure of using a semiprecious and precious metals as a drawing material. Working on a dark ground allows the gleam and luster and delicate reflective silver and gold properties of the metallic medium to present as high tones against the black ground. Glass is interested in the tradition of using nature as idealized ornament in art and design while seeking to observe and represent these plants as accurately as possible in all their irregularity and imperfection. The metallic lines enhance the decorative qualities of the filigree patterns formed by the seed heads and leaf veining. Her compositions are tightly cropped to bring the subject as close to the edge of the picture plane as possible. After studying at Art Students' League of New York, New York, NY, Glass earned a BA with Honors from Brown/RISD Exchange Program, Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI and went on to study Surface Design at Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, NY. Glass’s work has been exhibited widely in the United States and in a solo exhibition in Bologna, Italy. The artist lives and works in Massachusetts.
