Artist's description:

A return to what is probably the most oft-repeated theme in my work, the aesthetic and metaphoric possibilities in the materials of decaying and deteriorated surfaces, whether natural or man-made. A companion piece to 'Ornette Coleman' and 'Miles Davis' (also available here on Artfinder), the twin panels of this diptych represent two more giants of jazz, Charles Mingus and Thelonious Monk. I'm interested in parallels between natural and human actions and creativity, and see much in common between the way the elements create patterns and colours in corroding metal, and the way the jazz greats create improvised beauty in music through almost random, partly instinctive, yet deeply connected processes. Shot in Lancashire on 35mm film, the use of analogue techniques is a further immersion in this, echoing the way jazz uses traditional instrumentation but has the potential to generate music which is nothing short of futuristic.

This listing is for a pair of aluminium-mounted C-Type prints, each 16x12 inches, designed to be hung 1-2 inches apart to create an overall artwork size of 16x26 inches approx. Signed and numbered on the back.
Also available as unmounted prints in a range of sizes on Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl paper (or similar), printed on either one or two sheets, hand-signed and numbered in the border, or as pairs of gallery-wrap canvases (signed and numbered on the back).

Please contact me for information and pricing on different sizes and finishes, or with any other questions.

Limited edition of 25 includes all sizes and finish options - this piece will be printed no more than 25 times in any form.

Please be aware that gallery-quality prints of this kind takes a little time. Turnaround times vary from 7 business days for unmounted prints to 10 business days on average for canvas and aluminium mounting, after which I take delivery of the work for inspection before shipping to you. Guaranteed to be worth the wait!
