Step into a world of hidden eroticism as you experience our elegant Maîtrise Wallpaper from multi media artist Sarah Jane Palmer. While at first the design appears to be a soothing, geometric pattern, further inspection reveals a daring exploration of risqué sexuality.
Chains, handcuffs and intertwined bodies trail across this bold wallpaper, creating grand motifs reminiscent of the Baroque era. Inspired by visual illusions and subversive interpretations, Sheffield-based artist Sarah Jane Palmer has created an irrerevent design containing unexpected naughty secrets.
"What I love is that I can create design details that could be missed at first glance, but are then revealed with a second look," says Sarah. "I'm particularly interested in the immersive experience of developing patterns and illusions, drawing on elements of eroticism, humour and suspense."
Once Sarah had created the original design by hand, it was applied to the paper via an engraved roller in a printing technique known as flexography. This method creates a smooth, matt finish with clean, distinct lines – perfect for the intriguing, black shapes in Sarah's risqué design.
Making subtle references to the secret worlds of bondage and S&M, Maîtrise would create a cheeky talking point in your guest cloakroom. It could also be used to spice up your bedroom, bathroom or – dare we say it – your very own dungeon...! Combine Maîtrise with Sarah Jane Palmer's other design for The Monkey Puzzle Tree, an erotic voile called 'Body Lace', to create layers of exquisite naughtiness.
We recommend applying at least one coat of Polyvine Decorator’s Varnish in Dead Flat Matt to this wallpaper. This will make the paper more hardwearing without altering its distinct and evocative appearance.
