For this “Indian Summer, New Mexico, 2019” piece I photographed an Indian Paintbrush wildflower field in Northern New Mexico. I then, subsequently, in Photoshop, captured the highlights from the petals of the plants and transformed them into a surreal, abstract depiction of the wildflowers. What resulted was a non-repeating pattern of varying tonality of billions of red dots. Because the resulting file size is so large (>8GB), it can be enlarged to 20 feet wide by 50 feet long with amazing clarity and sharpness. Regarding mural size, the mural can be sized to any dimension from 20 feet hight by 30 feet wide, to 20 feet high by 50 feet wide. The print is mounted on an aluminum track system 1 inch thick for attaching to a wall.
A dye-sublimation printer is used to print onto an 8 mil, heavy knit polyester. The process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase.The sublimation process is a nearly permanent, high resolution, full color print. Because the dyes are infused into the substrate at the molecular level, the prints will not crack, fade or peel from the substrate. The print has a high degree of archival permanence and will not fade or discolor for 200+ years. The sublimation print can be easily cleaned using a diluted solvent cleaning pad, such as Mr. Magic eraser or Scotch-Brite erasing pads containing melamine foam, or a dust mop for general cleaning.
Previous Press Release, Taos News, September 2016: Goebel is widely recognized for his expert and innovative use of Photoshop in creating images that run the gamut from believable realism to pure fantasy. His controversial position regarding image manipulation is that what he is producing is not journalism but fine art – pictures that are to be appreciated for their intrinsic esthetic value rather than for their accuracy in depicting an actual event, place in time or subject.
