Iris #118 recalls early Japanese folding screens in the way
the beautiful flowers are painted on a gold background for
a rich, decorative effect (visit gallery 121 for examples). As
with screens, here, squares of gold leaf were applied onto
handmade Japanese paper. The artist then screenprinted the
floral design and softened the glittering effect of the gold leaf
by covering it with a pale wash.
