With a background in graphic design, photography, painting and sculpture I have lately been attempting to fuse some or all of these disciplines into a series of printed images. PURE GOLD is one such example. The new pictures are almost all abstract interpretations of a single human figure. While some began life as drawings, paintings or clay maquettes, the majority started out as photographs. They can no longer truly be called photographs, however, as they have been treated in a variety of ways that take them away from the source material (by way of scissors, knives, tearing, crumpling and other forms of abuse), after which paint, ink or chalk has been applied here and there in advance of a digital reworking that in some cases leads to a complete re-imagining - or scrapping.
The print on offer here (limited edition of just five prints this size) is made on Kodak heavyweight paper with a satin sheen finish, printed with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink. Light fastness up to 75 years when kept out of direct sunlight. Ideal for framing.
