Description: Metallic C Print on aluminum with hand applied ixed media and resin in an edition of 50. Signed and numbered, verso.
Condition Report: Excellent Condition
Notes: Radiating true Maui Blue, this piece is embellished with a state of the art glow pigment that will remain illuminated for up to 10 hours after only 30 seconds of UV exposure. The focus of Anna Sweets current series of work is women, immersed in water, at the "decisive moment" of their expression (to use the words of Cartier-Bresson). Sweet manipulates the images she creates by printing them on aluminum then encasing them in semi-precious materials including crystal, metal pigments, minerals, and glass. Each piece is finished with a UV resin that protects and preserves the underlying photographic print. The encased materials and photographic image seemingly coalesce into a stunning, three-dimensional representation of the subjects. The subjects in this series become ethereal displays of female beauty. Each photo image in this series is overpainted by the artist who incorporates crystals, sand, resin and other materials.
