Archival pigment inks on a clear acrylic sheet in a unique 'virtual' frame.
Fish Can 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. The high gloss of the acrylic sheet complements the rich colors of the image to produce a vibrant work of contemporary art.
A signed hand-written label for the back of the print is included.
a sense of humour, one lugubrious fish, one sardine can, a computer, one large sheet of acrylic, light, silver, impeccable craftsmanship, dedication, blood, sweat & tears.
PLEASE NOTE - the edition number of the print you receive will not necessarily correspond with that shown in the listing photograph.
