Mugwort Hare 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 two sizes: A4 (£50) or A3 (£100).
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.
About the artwork
This Hare very much represents a form of magical rebirth - or a new start - and a rebirth often follows a symbolic death - a new beginning after an ending. The wizard-like hare is working with the plant spirit and medicine of Mugwort which invites us to explore our dreams. Whilst painting this, a dragon fly came and sat on the step of my studio - auspiciously promising transformation.
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).
