New Print by A Paper Tiger

A Paper Tiger has just released their first print from Melissa Haslam, titled "Apparition".
Ltd edition of 25

12"x15.5" signed and numbered

Archival textured fine art paper

"Apparition is a narrative piece exploring a fictional relationship between nature and a manufactured toy. The ghost-like girl brings the floral toy into a natural environment, causing the plants pollination process to break down when the bees become attracted to the toys floral fabric."

By painting exotic yet strangely familiar environments, Australian artist Melissa Haslam offers an escape to a romanticized, whimsical and yet slightly dark interpretation of the world. With an emphasis on narrative theme, her paintings are populated by beautiful, forlorn and mischievous women in fairytale-like scenarios. Check out her website for more work and info at
