Simply titled "Couch", this photo is a shot from the backyard of the house where I grew up in New City, NY just 20 miles north of Manhattan.
Although the city became the backdrop of my teenage and adult life, the wood filled landscape was the playground of my youth during the 1970's.
Growing up with my family was something of being an oddity, me the american born son of eastern European immigrants nestled in the hills of a burgeoning suburb that was made up of mostly middle class white Americans. I did find myself a bit out of place, a bit pushed from the center and frequently left to my own devices when it came to play time.
These woods provided a template for the adventures of the outcast and the overlooked. Over the years, as I gravitated towards the other oddballs in my periphery, the woods remained a place for us to go, hid, play and behave as we pleased.
This image of the couch placed in the woods by my parents very much sums up the idea of belonging where one does not belong to me.
Here I am offering a limited edition of 33 pigment print on 13" x 19" EPSON Hot Press Natural 330gsm paper.
This is a beautiful, thick smooth matte paper that brings out the rich sepia and grey tones of the image.
I find this paper pairs so very well with the EPSON Ultrachrome archival pigments used to create this print.
The image is 10.25" x 13.5"
Each print is signed, dated, titled and numbered in pencil across the bottom leaving the collector the choice of displaying the inscription or masking with a matt frame.
Only 33 of the signed edition of this size and color will be made.
All prints are made and approved by myself.
It is being offered here UNFRAMED
