On the Edge was inspired by a view in Yorkshire where I saw a tree clinging on for dear life. There's something about these lone trees in extreme conditions that seems to relate to our tenacity in the face of turbulant times.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges. You can watch a video of the original artwork being made.
This is a reproduction canvas print on a wood "stretcher".
Here are some answers to questions people ask about this type of print.
- Is it limited edition? Yes – it will be part of the existing edition of 100
- Will it be signed? Yes it will be signed and numbered on the back as there’s no discrete way to sign the front.
- Are the colours a good match to the original? Yes, just like my paper prints, the colours have been carefully matched to the original.
- Will it stand the test of time? Yes, the canvas and inks are archival quality with a protective varnish (not shiny). The canvas is Innova Exhibition Matte Canvas 380gsm with pigment inks.
- Will I lose some of the picture round the sides? No, the printer samples the image to create borders that match seamlessly with the front face.
- How do I clean it? You can dust it with a soft clean dry cloth or wipe gently with a damp cloth.
- How do I hang it on the wall? D rings and string are attached just like for a regular picture. If it’s a large one you’ll need to put two picture hooks for stability.
- Can canvas prints be framed? Yes, they can be framed without glass using a "floating frame". This one is offered unframed so you can see the picture wrapping around the edges
- Can I buy a different size? Yes - just get in touch with the image and size you'd like and I'll provide a quote. You can choose from 18mm and 38mm depth. Use the prices in my shop as a guide - there's no additional charge for a special order and my usual returns policy still applies.
