The Enticement collection illustrates the dark allure of our planet’s largest rainforest: the Amazon. Here, vast rivers wind endlessly through mountainous terrain and thick blankets of fog creep through the trees. Locals say the jungle can swallow you up in a second. They say it’s inhabited by ancient spirits who are protecting their homes and play cruel tricks on those who dare to enter, luring their victims in so deep that few make it out to tell their tale. Devious monkeys prey upon lost travellers, setting up traps and using fruit as bait; hear the haunting call of the nocturnal Potoo birds abandoned by their parents; pink river dolphins shape-shift into a handsome human form, taking their victims in with seductive power; and steer clear of La Sachamama, a giant serpent and mother-spirit who will swallow you whole! All these intriguing stories from Amazonian natives have inspired the Enticement collection.
Using watercolour paints and collaging together unique motifs, the artwork has been crafted in the signature style of Alice Acreman Silks. Darker, moodier and more intense than her previous collections, Enticement designs are intensely detailed and combine beautiful florals in electric colours against striking anatomical art. The bright neon colour palette glows against deep greens and darkest black, which gives depth and mystery to the artwork.
