The inspiration

This impressive signed limited edition print featuring actress Jean Simmons is made using archival pigment inks with diamond dust and high gloss varnish on minuet paper with torn edges . The 'dust' adds texture and luminosity to the work and is a technique popularised in screenprinting by Andy Warhol. The artist Maria Rivans is known for her intricate original collage. ‘Persia’ depicts the iconic face of Jean Simmons, peering with feline intensity through dazzling emerald eyes, ready to pounce. In signature style, Rivans surrounds the starlet with kitty-cat collage: a diamond collar frames her neck, surrounded by feathers (the remnants of her last meal?) while, in amongst the tumbling flora and fauna, striped kitties play, Catwoman slinks in the undergrowth, and ‘Kitten Kong’, rampages through the streets of London. Yet the print is about more than just the connection between the feline and the feminine, inviting the viewer to contemplate our disconnect from animal instincts brought about by city life, where politics favours the individual, and governments toy with our lives - just like the kitten in the headdress, as she teases her little human plaything.

Best known for her intricate surreal landscapes, pin-up portraits and 3D boxed works, the viewer often experiences a visual and sensory overload from the hundreds of carefully cut-out found elements culled from her huge collection of vintage paraphernalia. Influenced by the extraordinary colours of Hitchcock films shown in Technico ...
