Water is an artistic trope rich in symbolism and ripe for metaphor, but consequently prone to the trap of cliché. With this series of images I have deliberately chosen to remove context and implication, even via titling (which often forms an integral part of my work). These are simply studies in form, composition, and captured movement...a reduction to pure aesthetics through which the presence or absence of interpretative consideration is transferred entirely to the viewer, to engage with the work in whatever way she or he chooses or is internally driven towards.
Shot on 35mm film, August 2017. Archival C-Type prints from colour film negative scans, mounted on aluminium substrate. Three panels, each signed and numbered on the back, and coming with individual certificates of authenticity.
This three-panel work consists of three 24x16 inch prints (Water 7, Water 8, Water 9) from their respective editions of 10+2AP. See individual print listings for details. Please contact me to enquire about triptychs in other sizes.
Triptych can be hung vertically or horizontally. Overall dimensions 24in x 54in (vertical), or 78in x 16in (horizontal).
Aluminium mounting is the ultimate ready-to-hang enhancement to your home decor, a spectacular image and a sleek and modern mounting system which creates a stunning piece of gallery standard artwork. 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 print. Wall-fixings are pre-fitted, so the piece is ready to hang straight away.
Additional images simulated and for illustration purposes only.
