Art Description

Photography: Color, Digital, Manipulated, Acrylic and Ink on Other.

Archival pigment inks on a clear acrylic sheet in a unique 'virtual' frame.

Canned Fish is part of the 'Surreal Fishions' series - a collection of witty observations on the fast food industry. A factory-fresh fish supper for the digital age which took nearly twenty years to prepare! The picture of the sardine can was taken on good, old-fashioned film in the UK in the early 1990's and the rather sad-looking fish was 'captured' digitally in Thailand in 2011.

The two images were happily married in a computer in the same year and are still together.

The virtual frame looks exactly as it appears in the listing photographs - including the 'reflections' and the 'shadows'. The whole image (including the frame) is printed directly onto the back of a sheet of clear acrylic using Epson's K3 archival pigment inks - art in its purest form! The high gloss of the acrylic complements the rich colors of the image to produce a stunning work of art.

A signed hand-written label for the back of the print is included.
