For a long time I wanted to create something organic and large. I present to you here my limited edition works of art, in a dimension larger than usual for me. To overcome the limit of the negative dimensions I split the photographic print into several negatives, creating diptyches, triptyches, polyptyches. Each print is made in a limited edition of 24.
These prints, using the historic photographic process of Cyanotype, have been handmade in Lanzarote and show you organic parts found in the island. Each photograph has been hand printed on a thin paper, the Hahnemuhle Sumi-e 80g rice paper, that has been bonded later over Arches Platine 100% 310g pure cotton paper as a heavier support, with a technique called Chine Collé, using natural powdered starch paste. The Chine Collé is water reversible, put the work of art into water (pH 7) for one hour to detach the print from its paper support.
The work of art is attached to a fine-art Aluminium Dibond with a thin double-sided adhesive tape all around its borders and kept under light pressure to cure. The Dibond has a square frame on the back to help you hang the work on your wall.
Each print is labelled on the back of the dibond with the edition details and signed. A certificate of autenthicity comes within the work. All the works are carefully protected with packaging foam and put inside a customized cardboard box. The box(es) are shipped safely protected with other wrapping material, inside an outer box. Registered mail, or collect it in person.
