Pure | Isles De Gigantes, Philippines
a note from the artist
Water is not a renewable resource. I think about this often; we have the same amount of water as we did one billion years ago. Only, much of what was no longer holds the treasure it once held. In the Philippines I did a lot of diving with the Peace Core to map and reconnoiter the reefs there. The Philippines marine areas are one of the top ten most bio diverse places in the world. The situation is rapidly, very rapidly, deteriorating in those waters. At the same time, the waters around the Philippines are among the purest and cleanest in the world.

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.
