This photographic series entitled "CHAMBER OF VELAZQUEZ” is a tribute to the historical figure of Velázquez, Spanish painter of the seventeenth century. Velázquez has been the artist who has had the most influence on my painting, especially with this work entitled "Las Meninas" (1655-1656}. I find in it, among other unique artistic value, a very special magic that makes it alive even in the year 2015.
In previous years I have original works on canvas and paper inspired by this painting.
This photographic series is based on my own photo’s originally taken in the Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain.
Just as Velázquez’s work aided by advanced technical elements of the technology of his time, I have worked to make this photographic series, with the support of technology in my time, ie, camera, computer, and digital programs for handling and transfer pictures in search of new possibilities. Some of these photographs have been previously painted with oil and enamel by me to achieve an original that I then photographed again.
This series "CHAMBER OF VELAZQUEZ” is comprised of 14 photographs that are 13 "x19".
Each unit I certify that I have made an edition of 5 units, each signed and numbered by the artist.
Each copy - print is made by the artist.
With a value of $ 300.00 per unit
Each photograph is sent in a special folder, foam packing and on-board dimensions 15 "x21" x1.5 ". Via UPS, and no later than 15 days.
