One of the characters that my niece Carly and I have created during our 10-year photo project is our rendition of the Greek Goddess of wisdom, warfare and art, Athena.
In one of the many versions of the origin of her name, Athena was still a young girl when she accidentally kills her best friend PALLAS during a friendly sparring match. She was so overcome with grief that she took on the name of her friend and became PALLAS ATHENA.
In this image we are showing ATHENA as the young warrior, before her fateful transition. She is poised, balanced and fierce even when she was a young girl. Her eyes reveal a moment of venerable acceptance as if clairvoyant and aware of the burden her future holds and her devotion to her soon to be lost companion.
I am presenting a very limited edition of 22 pigment prints on beautiful 17" x 22" Epson Legacy Etching Paper. It is printed using Epson archival UltraChrome matte pigments.
The paper is a slightly textured 314 gsm 100% cotton fiber based paper. The surface has some nice tooth with the weight and feel of fine art printmaking paper.
This textured matte paper is acid and lignin free with no optical brightening agents. All this fancy stuff pretty much means that this is an archival print that will last and last and last so as long as the planet sticks around, so will your print.
I fell in love with this paper after much experimentation and exploring the digital print realm in order to present my images with the quality it deserves.
Each print is signed, dated and numbered along the bottom leaving the option to keep visible or concealed if matted within a frame. I find this keeps the visual aesthetic up to the collector.
You will receive your print in a sealed clear plastic protective envelope to keep your print protected from surface damage and moisture during handling prior to framing. You will also receive a signed and dated note of provenance and care instructions to ensure your knowledge of the particular paper your print is on and proof of authenticity.
All the pigment prints I offer are created in house by myself. I approach the digital darkroom much as I have the traditional darkroom for over 25 years by treated each image with
incredible care and consideration before releasing any edition.
There is a great deal of thought put into sizes, tones and papers used for each particular image.
I have the same high demand for quality for my digital print work as I have had for all my work for nearly 3 decades.
I use only high quality, archival pigments and papers to ensure stunning tones and textures for long lasting works.
