Art Description

Photography: Dye Transfer on Aluminium.

This limited edition metal print is from a 4 year photo project I was immersed in while living in downtown Los Angeles. It was included in my solo exhibition at Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts Gallery on Spring Street in June 2014.

The rich tones and textures of this image allude to the value of what's behind the wooden doors. Captured at dawn, a single sconce glows over the 5th street entrance to the Los Angeles Central Library. Enlightened refers not only to the lit sconce but to what happens when you enter this shrine to knowledge.

The compositional structure and clean lines of this image have elevated it to one of my favorites. It has a calming effect on me when I rest my eyes on the textural details and nearly monochromatic tones.

This image is printed on aluminum with a dye transfer process that combines heat and pressure to embed the image into a coated substrate. It is a robust and archival medium that should last well over 100 years. There is a floating frame on the back of the metal print that stiffens the artwork and provides a hanging mechanism.

Signed print with certificate of authenticity.
