Edition 5 /150

"A strained enumeration / german original title: Eine angestrengte Aufgezähltheit" was photographed in the Ruhrgebiet town Essen at the sight of the former colliery "Zeche Zollverein", which was labled "world heritage" by the Unesco in 2001 and is like a massive industrial open air museum. The photo is just an extract of a building which is (in my my estimation) about 400 meters long and looks all the same over the complete distance, except the little numbers, which can be seen in parts in the the top section of the picture. If my understanding was correct, the building is the former coking plant.
I just love the symmetry, the ever ongoing repetition and the resulting structures.
I visited the area in 2011 and shot the photo then.

If you prefer a "ready-to-hang-solution" - speak to me and for sure we'll find a medium, we both could live with. I very much prefer Aludibond.

I don't do different editions in different sizes. I find that quiet awkward. Saying there will be only - for example in this case - 150 copies sold of it and then going: "Ah wait - I didn't say, I won't start another edition in another size".
But this also means, that I'd love to sell bigger sizes (not smaller) within the edition if asked for it.

Note: The frame in the second interior-context-picture is just an example and not part of the sale.

The prices of my limited artworks rise, the further the edition proceeds. In other words: the first print of the edition is the best value - more or less a bargain, the last one consequently the most expensive. I consider this logical, because by doing so, my artworks automatically rise in value.
