"Icon I" Hand-gilded print
About the print
A beautiful reproduction of the painting "Icon I" that blurs the boundaries between being a print and an original artwork. This edition includes 150 high-quality Giclee prints which I have individually hand-gilded with 24kt gold leaf and finished the very refined details by hand with pen and ink. Each print is made on Hahnemühle German Etching paper, a beautiful heavyweight paper with an extraordinary velvety tactile feel and fine felt structure.

About the painting:
“Icon I” 2013
Ink, acrylic, paper transfer on canvas
“Icon I” directly references Russian iconography in appearance and is talking about the origins of religious constructs and culture. It is people’s lives from a very distant past being weaved into the story that has been twisted and turned intentionally and unintentionally so many times that it is not possible anymore to imagine it is based on anything real, realistic or human. It represents how, over the centuries, something once real and straight forward turns into a distorted image overgrown with myth.
A high quality digital print on Hahnemühle German Etching 310gsm. The finest quality paper that is made of 100% cotton and guarantees high archival standards and exceptional colours. Limited edition of 150 copies each signed and numbered and accompanied by a label and a certificate of authenticity.
