Gia is a one of a kind hand painted and sewn clutch, designed to fit your phone, money & cards, or anything else you put in your purse. The ultimate accessory for any colour loving fashionista. Why go for the same old thing, why not go bold and go original.
To create this design Janicke began the process on her Gelli plate (a soft, flexible gelatin-like surface), working intuitively using various hand-cut stencils. She printed many layers of abstract shapes and colours on top of each other meaning the work is made up of multiple layers of paint. Then to finish the piece off she hand-painted sections to make the pretty patterns stand out.
Materials: Hand painted canvas with acrylic paint, flexible plastic cover, cotton synthetic mix lining with velcro closure.
Approx External size: 24cm x 12cm
Approx Internal size: 21cm x 11cm

To get long term use out of your clutch it needs to be treated with care. Each piece is hand-painted and unique and the paint may leave slight marks on the inside of the plastic cover. This is usually not noticeable until removing the cover. To prevent this, don’t leave your clutch in the sun, car or on a hot table while enjoying lunch with friends.
About the Artist
Janicke’s images are created from her own photography, as well as time spent observing and interacting with nature. Her practice centres on playful experimentation with stencils, printmaking, dripping paint and multiple layers. Details come from fine tuning and blocking out areas in solid colours. Through this process a happy, colourful menagerie emerges.
Originally from Norway, Janicke lives in Geelong with her partner, rescue dogs and a galah named Astrid. Through her work she seeks to transmit the childlike sense of wonder, happi-ness and awe that she still experiences when observing animals and nature.
