“This work was created last summer on one very hot afternoon. It is of Uluru and my depiction of the Australian outback. I have never been to the desert here in Australia, but I guess the heat I was experiencing that day made its way to the page.”
Finer Space’s 2 penny worth:
We love the warmth, vibrancy and energy of this piece. We can almost feel the heat radiating from the page - the round bright yellow sun, the heat waves in the sky, and the baked earth all make us feel as though we’re moments away from living a postcard dream.
You’ll see from the bottom right hand corner that this work was originally made as a gocco print. Gocco is a small screen printing mechanism, and we love the ink detail of this piece.
Where we’d hang it:
We shall love having this one placed in our living room here in Melbourne, where upon those dreary grey days we can appreciate these beautiful hues and imagine ourselves warm.
Harriet’s wonderful design has been printed on to Hahnemühle Photo Rag. This beaut museum quality archival paper has only a tiny bit of paperly texture to it, just enough to see if you look closely but not enough to detract from the detail of her work. It is of 308gsm and is comprised 100% of cotton. The inks used are fully archival Epson UltraChrome K3® pigment inks. They’re pretty special inks, and with the correct care this piece will last a lifetime.
This here is a quality piece of artisan craft.
Your prints will arrive in strong, acid-free clear polypropylene sleeves or sheets. We’ll pop the artwork in it’s sleeve into a super-duper strong kraft mailing tube so that it survives it’s journey to you completely unscathed. For more info, see our Quality and Sustainability section.
We also include a card with the artist’s story, as well as their story behind your chosen artwork.
Upon receiving your print
Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling. There is likely to be a slight curl as it has been resting inside the postage tube. Gently unfurl. Keeping the print within it’s protective cover, you can carefully weigh each corner (for example, with a book), to help the curl straighten out.
When you do take the print out of it’s protective cover, touch only the edges of the paper, and lift the print by the opposite corners.
We do include a little ‘how to care for your print’ piece with every artwork, so if your piece is intended as a gift the lucky recipient will have guidance.
