It’s been a while since I put up the companion images to this muted landscape #4 , here , here , and here but the series finally came back from the framers and they all got shipped off to Parliment House in Sydney just yesterday. Oh my goodness getting all these done was a bit of an epic ….. and then there was an overbooking at the venue so we’ve all had to wait an extra week to put up our show…… it was all meant to be on the wall on the 4th but now won’t open till next week……. so all the frantic rushing to get it all done in time was all a bit nuts now that I think about it.
Anyway after a lot of flaffing about with how best to articulate the images to best advantage I finally printed them myself on to 325 gsm warm toned Fabrizoni finest watercolour paper with my very nice Epson photostylus R1800 printer. Then each pair …. there are four in total…. has been double mounted in a mid grey matt with a glossy black box frame. Each print is A3 in size and the final dimensions of each framed pair is 106.5cms by 53 cms. So only mediumly large in the end. The mid grey tone of the matt reads as mid green in relation to the prints themself and the whole effect is of a very muted but mysterious melancholic beauty…. I’m very pleased with them.
So if your in Sydney next week pop into Macquarie Street and have a look…. there are four of these Broken Landscapes and another new doubled work to boot……. Landscape for Piet Mondrian #1 and #2… I’ll post about that set later on
