I was born and raised in Florida... a land of big skies and lots of water. I’ve always been fascinated by one of the greatest visual paradoxes that exists. How is the edge of a planetary sphere presented and perceived as a straight line? The horizon has always been a source of wonder and mystery for me. Who among us has not had a life-changing thought while staring at this incredibly straight line?... It is a defining feature of our existence on this ball of air, water, rock, and life. These images are created from my imagination… only the horizon is real. It is a boundary,... a separation between air and water. A separation between our earthly realm and all that is above us. I create images of air and I create images of water. But, not at the same time. I choose my water, then I choose my air. I place them together and then choose the placement of the horizon. The one thing I can’t choose is our Earth-bound view of the horizon... It’s a straight line. The purest line in our world. I was driving down the interstate and this magnificent sky developed in front of me. I pulled over, got out, and as the trucks and cars were buffeting me, I got out my camera and took a few shots of this sky ablaze. I later created water, hills, and reflections to complete the image. It is produced in a limited edition of 10 in it's largest print size. It is printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308 with Archival Pigments. The image size is 40 inches x 40 inches with a 2" border for a final work that measures 44 inches x 44 inches. Signed and numbered on the front, it also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity and is shipped in a crush-resistant tube. You can also acquire the image in various open edition sized prints with a choice of framing or as a gallery-wrapped canvas. www.marcwardphotography.com
