Forest Sprite - Shrub
Dimensions: 5" X 7" print; 8" X 10" cardboard backing and beveled mat.
The Forest Sprites are all characters who emerged from John
Crawford's mystical digital collage prints. Each print begins as a
single photograph, taken in nature, and, as John copies, inverts, and
overlaps portions of the photo, he finds creatures who were hiding in
the original scene. Many are shy and choose to remain a part of their
environment in the print but some are intrigued by the opportunity of
having John help them take on individual form. As he coaxes them from
the print, they often find their voices and insert themselves into our
lives and projects. You'll find some of them on the website, others in
the Fairy Woodland movie, "Gateways to Faerie." Now you can bring them
into your life to lighten your day, make you smile, and help you
remember that Fairies are everywhere you look.
SHRUB: As one of the younger Sprites, Shrub is never too busy to play. Hide and seek is a favorite pastime and, unless the game includes our car keys, it's a lot of fun. Hiding in plain sight is her specialty - she makes herself so ordinary she blends into the surroundings, leading whoever is seeking her to focus on more interesting subjects. Shrub can also be flashy and decorative and draw your attention to her when she's trying to hide something else. The cats have been known to enlist her help when we're trying to track down a mouse they've brought home. Getting Shrub to help you hide things is not difficult - just turn it into a game and she's on board. We rather hope she never grows up.
