Octopus 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) 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 59.4 x 42 cm 23.4 x 16.5 inches
About the artwork
During a visit to Cornwall in October I read a book which talked about the sounds under the seas and that possibly the song of the fin back whale is so powerful is circumnavigates the globe.This lead my imagination into a place where there’s a network of whale song lines under the seas- keeping us together-like a sub marine gravity sorts.
The same book talked about the amazing ability the octopus has to adapt to its surroundings without using its brain.
What a skill. That lead to my imagination running riot - what if the octopus was so magical it actually changed its environment to suit itself - without even a thought.
That would be something.
Octopus …the magician.
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).
