Hello Léon is shot on the Mediterranean coast of Spain using only natural light, the horizon and the water surface. What you see is however much more. The layered image exudes a deceptive silence. The image invites repeated viewing, in which one drowns and obtains a sense of peace that is often lacking in our modern lives. Alienation techniques and uncontrolled motion blur create a twilight that allows room for reflection and interpretation.
Hello Léon, makes reference to the works op Léon Spilliaert (1881-1946) and is part of the Transcendental Tranquility project of the artist. For the project he travels the world and uses only the sky, horizon and water to create conceptual, abstract, minimalistic images that are a reaction on the overload of stimuli that reach us in everyday life.
The images in the project make a contemporary reference to a romantic tradition within painting: that of the artist/photographer shunning the turbulence of the 21st century. He retreats into the vastness of nature, distancing himself from the passage of time.
In times of unbridled manipulation of images, Roseport resolutely vows to maintain the authenticity of untouched images, in synch with the authenticity of the shooting process. What we see is what the camera registers at the moment of the shoot.
Your print will be produced to the highest standards, proofed, checked and packed in a sturdy cardboard box. The image is printed on Hahnemühle cotton based, extra smooth paper of the highest archival quality, specially selected by the artist in order to create exceptional density, sharpness, color saturation and depth of color in the images.
The certificate of authenticity is signed by the artist, and guarantees your print is a limited artwork only available at the editions stated. You can attach the certificate on the back of the print once framed. The artwork is signed on the back.
This image is also available as edition of 7 at 30X45cm, edition of 5 at 100X150cm, edition of 3 at 150X150cm and edition of 3 at 150X225cm.
