Lot 38: AHMED MATER | Illumination XIX & XX
October 20, 2016
London, United KingdomLive Auction
Description: Monochrome offset X-ray print and mixed media on arches paper, in two parts
Condition:This work is in very good condition. Some faint creases, paper undulation and very light abrasions to the edges of the paper, all in line with the artist creation process and choice of medium. Colours:The colours in the catalogue illustration are accurate, with the overall tonality of the paper being softer and less red in the original work. The illustration fails to convey the bright and reflective golden scripture and ornamentation around the Xray imagery.
