Organic art – limited edition large prints

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.

Medicine-Plants

 

Medicine-Plants.

In an apttempt to mantain health we use medicines, from plants or synthetic. On the matter, some miths or fears reign creating different views.  Trying to artistically approach the matter I photographed some medicinal Plants of Lanzarote and printed them in #cyanotype on Medicine information leaflets. The cardboard frame is a scrap from another cyanotype print.

Plantas-Medicamentos.

En el tentativo de mantener la salud utilizamos medicamentos, procedentes de plantas u obtenidos por síntesis. Sobre la materia, algunos mitos o miedos reinan generando visiones diferentesIntentando acercarme artisticamente al asunto, he fotografiado algunas Plantas medicinales de Lanzarote e impresas en #cianotipia sobre prospectos de Medicamentos. El marco en cartón es reciclado de otra impresión en cianotipia.

Colección Macro

La colección Macro está pensada para el diseño de interiores de tu hogar.

Las bellezas del Océano de mi colección Macro las encuentro a la orilla del mar en Lanzarote, a menudo maltratadas por el mar y su rocas volcánicas. Sin embargo tienen toda la poesía de la naturaleza. Recojo estas pequeñas piezas de pocos milimetros hasta unos pocos centimetros, y las traigo a mi taller fotográfico para que tengan una nueva vida.

Juntas a esas imagenes, me gusta presentaros otras sensaciones de la tierra, imagenes de plantas, sus semillas, bayas. Siendo más grandes que su tamaño real ellas conectan con las otras bellezas del mar por el mismo estilo y tipo de fotografía.

Antes de decidir de realizar esta colección he comprendido que quería mostrar la belleza escondida de las pequeñas cosas que siempre hay a nuestro alrededor. La elección de una forma especifica era importante. En este trabajo he sentido la influencia del maestro Karl Blossfeldt, aunque  si mi estilo es muy diferente. La luz natural me ayudó a conservar todo el sentimiento que estos objetos son capaces de transmitir y la estructura formal realzó los detalles. El utilizo del azul de prusia de la cianotipia confiere abstracción y poesía al mismo tiempo.

Os presento aquí debajo esas bellezas del océano. Mi colección Macro está impresa a mano en Cianotipia, siguiendo el proceso fotográfico tradicional del 1842, sobre Arches Platine que es un papel muy especial  específicamente pensado y realizado para procesos de fotografía alternativa como el platino (de ahí el nombre), paladio, cianotipia.

Cada foto es 23×23 cm, y está montada sobre un simple soporte blanco 25×25 cm hecho con cartón reciclado forrado con papel, también puede ser realizada sin soporte para tu elijas el marco que mejor se adapte para la decoración de tu hogar.

Puedes encontrarlas en los mercadillos de artesanía donde trabajo en Lanzarote. El precio de cada fotografía montada sobre su soporte blanco es de 35 euros. Puedo enviarlas a todo el mundo, con carta registrada, dentro de un paquete muy bien protegido.

Mis fotografías Macro son disponibles en mi tienda online: www.CyanotypeHandprinted.Etsy.com

Macro collection

(para el español clica aquí)

Macro Collection, is intended for the interior design of your home.

The ocean beauties of my Macro collection are found on the shores of Lanzarote, often battered by the sea and its volcanic rocks. Small pieces, with a dimension from few millimeters up to few centimeters, are collected and taken into my photographic workshop to regain a new life. I am presenting you all those ocean beauties in the same printed dimension, to give them the chance to be seen, and chosen, by you.

Together with those images I like to present you other sensations from the earth, images from plants, their seeds, berries. Being larger than their life size they connect with the other sea beauties for the same stylistic and photographic approach.

In this work I felt the influence of art master Karl Blossfeldt, even if my style is very different. The use of natural light helped me to preserve every feeling these objects are able to transmit and the formal structure highlighted the details. The use of the prussian blue of cyanotype gives abstraction and poetry at the same time.

My Macro collection of those beautiful treasures is hand printed in Cyanotype, following the 1842 traditional photographic process, on Arches Platine, a very special 100% cotton paper specifically designed and produced in France for alternative photography processes such as platinum (hence the name), palladium, cyanotype.
Each photograph is 23×23 cm (9×9″), and is mounted on a simple white support 25×25 cm or can be posted without it for your free choice of frame and home decoration.

You can find them in the artisan markets where I work in Lanzarote. I post all over the world in a very well protected parcel with registered mail. Please, contact me for further details.

My Macro photographs are available in my online shop: www.CyanotypeHandprinted.Etsy.com
