Photography: Color, Photo on Paper.
All of my prints are created using Hahnemuhle 300gsm PhotoRag paper and archival inks. Meticulously packaged in a tube (Prints are not framed), the greatest care is taken to make sure your print arrives in perfect condition wherever you are in the world.
Along with the print, you will receive a certificate of authentication which states the edition number and bares my signature.
This artwork forms part of my series Slitherstition - below is the condensed artistic statement
For as long as we have agreed on patterns of belief, symbols have existed, with signs of light and dark - good and evil - the most prominent among them. It seems to me that in these, no symbol appears more frequently than the snake. In a world history so diverse and conflicted one thing appears to be agreed on: the snake is to be feared. There is no room to teach that they are simply animals looking to live and defend from attack when the symbolism is so dark and alluring.
These images, then, are a result of my attempts to break down our suppositions of the animal. I am looking at their enchanting beauty and design, and their vulnerability, as creatures, simply existing outside of the pressure of the evil they are meant to represent.
