Former cruise ship and car ferry The Duke of Lancaster arrived in Llanerch-y-Mor, North Wales, in August 1979. A plan to turn the ship into a leisure complex met with obstruction and bureaucracy from the local authorities, ultimately resulting in the abandonment of the project and the ship being left to rust. On a bright Spring day, I created a series of images capturing the beautiful decay of this once-magnificent vessel.
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. Hand-signed and numbered on the back.
The photograph is professionally lab-printed onto Fuji Crystal Archive DPII paper using a traditional photo-chemical process, then mounted and sealed on a 3 layer aluminium substrate (for superb stability and warp-resistance). Finally, a UV-protective coating is applied to protect the prints. Wall-fixings are pre-fitted, so the piece is ready to hang straight away.
Also available as unmounted prints in a range of sizes on Hahnemühle FineArt Pearl paper (or similar), printed on either one or two sheets (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.
This aluminium-mounted diptych is limited to 7 within an overall edition of 25 across all sizes and substrates.
Please be aware that quality 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!
