Fox and Haw Giclée Art Print
This archival-quality Giclée print
comes on Haemulid German Etching 310-gram heavyweight sustainable paper.
The heavyweight, high-quality paper has a warm tone and a mottled texture which enables it to hold more ink and capture the light, ensuring strong, vibrant colours and deep blacks that are high in contrast.
Having experimented with many giclée papers I have found that this particular paper really suits the high vibrational colours of the work. Each print is numbered and is signed in pencil by the artist. The first limited edition run is of 100.
Prints come unframed.
Available in three sizes: A4 (£50) A3 (£100) and A2 (£200).
A4 size print measures 21.0 x 29.7cm/ 8.27 x 11.69 inches.
A3 size print measures 29.7 x 42.0cm/ 11.69 x 16.53 inches.
A2 size print measures 42.0 x 59.4cm/ 16.53 x 23.39 inches.
About the artwork
I initially came across the spirit of the fox that inspired this painting on a ramble on The Ridgeway - an ancient pathway in Wiltshire, U.K. I was near the Avebury stone circle when I discovered a pile of fox bones under a Haw tree.
I buried the bones nearby and during a journey using a rattle went on to journey with the fox.
Fox is a great teacher who shows us how to live, love and learn. Hawthorn is a hardy, wise tree who gives us, in this instance, protection and healing while we find our way into the magical realms.
This image was created following a deep shamanic journey. In shamanic traditions, a journey is a dream-like meditation often facilitated using a rhythmic, hypnotic drum beat – a process known in some traditions as ‘riding the shaman’s horse’ (the shaman’s horse being the drum as a mode of transport to realms of 'otherness' or 'non-ordinary reality' to quote the visionary Carlos Castaneda).
