Escaping the Crowd is about being squeezed on so many sides that the bubbles begin to break through. The smaller bubbles behind have created a chain reaction that has managed to force some quite large bubbles through the even larger bubbles that flank the image on both the right and the left. It almost feels like people jockeying for position at a rock concert and they begin to work their way steadily to the front. As they progress on their journey they seem to head towards the brighter red colours to the left of the image. A simple pure photograph of how the bubbles arranged when introduced to the water
Printed on Fotospeed gloss 270 gsm paper. A bright and ultra glossy paper with a white point, enabling striking colour, detail and density, created specifically for giclee printing.
The Oil and Water Collection.
Escaping the Crowd is part a collection inspired by the observation that while some things may appear to repel or oppose each other, there are times when their meeting can be a thing of great beauty. Occasionally and with the right conditions and amount of light, there can be something inherently beautiful about the refusal of the elements to mix.
Large or tiny bubbles are created depending upon how quickly or slowly the oil is introduced. Normally when oil is placed in water in daylight or under normal household bulbs the images created look quite bland. With meticulous lighting and backgrounds an almost ethereal image can be created.
Technically difficult to produce, the perfect balance between lights, colours, water and oil creates results that are truly mesmerising.
Each individual piece has been carefully crafted and specifically lit in such a way as to reveal the complete beauty of oil and water. There are only a limited number of each print and because every image is individually hand crafted to perfection, you can be assured of a stunning timeless piece of art that can be enjoyed for its unique and timeless elegance.
