LIMITED EDITION PRINT
This is a limited edition print - one of 100. It's signed by the artist and numbered.
MEDIUM AND MATERIALS
This digital collage was made using painted and photographic textures, bezier tools and a variety of light-based creative software programs and visual processing routines I built myself. Some digital brushes and paints were used too.
It's printed using the very high quality Giclee printing process onto Hahnemuhle Photorag, an acid-free 100% cotton-based heavy art paper with a fibrous finish. The colours are totally non-reflective super-matt, have a deep, rich feel to them, and they're guaranteed to archival standards, around one to two hundred years. It's supplied un-mounted, so you can frame as you wish.
CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
This work comes with an illustrated and hologrammed certificate of authenticity, which has comprehensive details of the work and a warranty.
OPTIONAL FRAMING AND PROTECTION
If you wish, the work can be protected with a matt acrylic seal, extending its life and protecting it from UV (extra £15). Further, if you prefer a ready-to-hang work, I can have it professionally mounted on a modern aluminium substrait, completely air-sealed behind perspex, protecting the work from scuffs or damage, further extending its archival life and supply with it a wall-fixing subframe. My London framers are top quality. This costs an extra £100. To order this, simply message me via Saatchi, and I will revise the total price, deliveries and contract on this page accordingly before you buy.
This work is part of the Study Series, a collection of early works, successful technique trials and studies for larger works, made largely in 2011/12.
