Awakening | Italy
a note from the artist
When I walk into a gallery I am always drawn to a similar type of painting. One with a large light source that is expanding into the landscape. When I stepped up to the shore at Lake Barcis I saw an opportunity to bring this inspiration to my photographic postproduction. The sun was in the perfect place and it was brighter than I could make use of in a typical photograph. Instead I captured the image with the knowledge that I was going to use it as a canvas to paint upon. The result is this hyperreal blend of photography and painting.
*Also Available as a Painted Landscape
Edition of 50
About the prints: I print on a premium substrate that is unparalleled in depth and luminosity. The material refracts light in such a way that light travels laterally through the paper as well as reflects to the audience creating a brilliant effect that many mistake to be rear illumination. Each print is then face mounted to acrylic and sandwiched to a protective backing. The artwork is then framed or a recessed mount is added to the back to float on the wall. I offer Tabacchino and other handmade framing options. Available starting 20”x60” 24”x72” 28”x84” 32”x96” and custom sizes. Below are examples in 4” frames with and without liners. More arrangements are available. Liners are available in Black, White, Beige. See FRAMES in the menu above for more frames and liner options.
