For this work I was playing around with an idea of the underlying cracks that can often times be seen in an otherwise perfect face that someone might be presenting to the world. The portrait is the result of that idea. Images of plain white broken china, ceramic sculptures and some roses come together to reveal a beautiful and broken woman in an intriguing surreal portrait. Limited Edition of 5 full size 24” x 36” framed prints. Each is printed on premium professional photo paper that has a subtle liquid-like silver metallic coating.
Once the print is matted and framed, the total sizeof the framed work is increased to approximately 33” X 44.” It is professionally framed with archival matting and a sheet of clear premium acrylic, instead of glass. The acrylic used in the framing has a higher optical quality than glass and it is UV light resistant, so the work is well protected. Acrylic is 50 lighter than glass, and unlike glass is shatterproof so it can easily be shipped without worry of breakage. All of the framing materials have been carefully chosen to compliment and enhance the finished print, so as to provide a cohesive and unique original work of art. The framing is finished with a simple contemporary black wood frame with all the necessary hardware attached, so that you can hang it right out of the box.
