A limited edition scarf by Silke Otto-Knapp for House of Voltaire. Made from 100% silk, the design features a bold placement print.
This is a limited edition of 100.
Otto-Knapp makes paintings of performance and landscape, approaching the canvas as a stage and a site of orchestrated scenarios. Gouache and watercolor are applied in delicate layers, depicting scenes of a fugitive beauty and imbuing the works with an ethereal magic. Her works bring together the reality of landscape with the pretense of stage design to raise questions around decorative surface, spatial depth and pictorial construction.
