About this Piece
"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made of layers, cells, constellations."
– Anais Nin
I found this quote as a pasted sticker on a wall in Brooklyn, NY in 2016 and took a photo of it. As I was making this new work reflecting on 2020 and skimming my favorite images, this photo popped up. Then I looked up the full quote from Nin and it hit me as so apropos as we all navigate these eventful times.
The artwork is available in two formats:
1) Printed on a metal panel (aluminum):
These will be produced as limited editions of 3 sizes (see below). Once the edition has been purchased, no other pieces will be made in this medium at this size.
Here industrial UV-coated inks are printed directly on aluminum, creating a deeper, more translucent layered look which also allows the imagery's detail to pop so well off the surface. In this piece, I chose a white background to allow the vivid colors to reflect off the piece.
This piece is ready to hang with a framed, wire-backed hanger. It floats 1/2 inch off the wall. Below see the Left Room photo to see how it looks.
Metal Panel Prints are made to order. Please allow 10-14 days for shipping.
11x14 Edition = 8 Total
1/8 is available at Sidestreet Arts

2) Archival Paper Pigment Print:
I use Museum-grade, 100% cotton rag, 250 gsm paper. Printed with an Epson SureColor P5000 and 11 UltraChrome HDX Pigment Inks that ensure visibility of the smallest details, and colors that appear as fresh as day one, even after 100 years. These are open editions.
Below see the Right Room photo to see how it looks framed.
Framing is not included.
Each print is signed and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Archival Prints are made to order. Please allow 7-10 days for shipping.
