Surrealism, Portraiture,figurative, contemporary, Photo manipulation
Sometimes it seems to me that I dont choose the images or a particular idea, so much as those images and idea suggest themselves to me. This work is the result of one of those times. . A black and white image of a butterfly, another of a pattern that resembles a rose, and a suitable image of a female subject with the slightest hint of a wry smile. I decided to go along to see where this would lead. The result is this work of pure surrealism. This work is printed smooth aluminum and offeredas a single 30” x45” print. Sheets of specially prepared smooth aluminum , are a great contemporary material on which to print artworks, such as this digital work of art. This is because of the stunning results that the metal printing process gives. The. dyes used in the printing are directly infused into the specially coated aluminum sheets which gives a breathtaking luminescence to the finished work. With this process, all of the colors and details in the work become much more vibrant. and at the same time the process also gives the work incredible depth. A sheet of 12” thick , premium non-reflective acrylic covers the face of the metal print to complete the presentation. It is hung with 4 Stylish Black Aluminum Mounting Posts at each corner. All of the framing materials have been carefully chosen to compliment and enhance the finished print, so that it results in a cohesive and unique work of art. This work is shipped in a wooden crate with all the necessary mounting hardware attached so that it can be hung right after removing it from it’s crate.
