Rock Shield (2021)

California Coast

One of the things that I absolutely love about photograph on the beach is that there are countless options for personal expression. Here, I decided that this rock resembled a mental shield and that the water from the ocean represented life's troubles coming at me. The water, like life, relentless kept crashing into the rock shield, but no matter how many times it hit the rock, it did not pass it. I thought this metaphor was particular interesting to try on for size in this black and white rendering.

TruLife Acrylic Fine Art Masterpiece

TruLife Acrylic Fine Art Masterpiece

Your fine art is printed on FujiFlex Crystal Archive - a polyester-based silver halide material which creates stunning gallery-quality color prints. This medium shows the full depth and color range as I experienced and looks absolutely stunning.

Once printed, the FujiFlex is placed behind TruLife acrylic and on top of another acrylic archival substrate. A special adhesive called Diasec is used to bond the fine art print to the acrylic. Unlike other methods of adhesion used by other photographers, Diasec is engineered to never separate, bubble, peel, or fail, so you can know your artwork will last several lifetimes. Also unlike other acrylic prints from other photographers, this mounting method prevents bowing of the print which is caused by expansion and contraction of the acrylic.

Your fine art is Face Mounted on lens-grade optically clear 1/8″ TruLife Anti-Reflective acrylic. This revolutionary product delivers the highest-resolution viewing experience of photographic artwork available today. TruLife acrylic is 99% UV resistant and scratch resistant, helping preserve the life of the print.

Ambient and directed light that shines through the face of these prints is accentuated by the acrylic glass, creating a 3-D or back-lit feel that will absolutely astonish you. To fully enjoy the benefits of an acrylic print, it should be properly lit - while TruLife is anti-reflective, it is almost impossible to eliminate all glare.

The Acrylic Face Mount comes ready to hang with a z-bar hanging system. An acrylic face mount piece of art will look great against most any wall type.

Fine Art Paper Print

Rock Shield (2021) print

Your artwork is printed on beautiful Sunset Select Hot Press Fine Art Paper. This is by far my favorite paper print to use for fine art printing. It has a really nice rag texture and presents details in a stunning way. By default, I mount each print on museum-grade archival dibond, which makes the artwork ready to matte and frame. Please note that once you receive the print, you will need to be extremely careful with your method of handling the artwork so it is not damaged.
