Patellidae chartam-ova II
Many of the costumes in this series are made from marine materials. The limpets and razor shells in this creation are collected from the costume designer's childhood paradise in the Northern part of Norway, where her mother grew up.
Primarily a visual echo of the limpets, the egg carton also tells a story about another calcium-based shell that is now exploited and thrown in the waste: telling a story about meals eaten, history lived before the moment of photographing.
Printed with pigment ink (Epson) by the photographer on 100% cotton paper (Hahnemühle Photo Rag Baryta), this is one of twelve pictures in the series "Of the eyes he made window panes". The combination of pigment and cotton should in itself be one of the most durable media, but the surface has not been treated further and should be kept behind UV protection for optimal longevity. The image is presented with a generous white border, and signed on the front, below the print. There is also a hologram badge in verso with a matching Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist, supplied in the shipment.
The print is edited in photoshop, but not a composite or a "look like a painting"-filtered image.
40 x 50 cm / 15.7 x 19.7 inches. Limited edition of 5. Not mounted.
Price includes Art Tax 5%.
