Series description:

In times when ephemeral art becomes increasingly relevant, and when the value of aesthetic appearance seems to be fading, sometimes one raises his head to the sky and says: that really is art.

On some occasions, admiration comes from contemplating the sky in its entirety. At the same time, in many other cases, the elements of isolated regions (shapes, colors, textures, repetitions, planes) get together to create a scenario that does not seem the product of chance, but an artistic disposition resulting from a trained inspiration and, moreover, in continuous and magisterial evolution.

Beautiful and volatile, they offer a spectacle worthy of quiet contemplation. However, we let the vast majority of those in our lives be lost.

This series is a tribute to what nature creates in a reflex way every day: a reminder of the convenience of incorporating beauty every day into our lives.


Media selection (paper finish)

Matte - artist’s recommendation (Aquarelle  / Edition Etching Rag)

This photograph has something extraordinary when printed on heavy textured matte paper (Canson Infinity Aquarelle Rag 310g). It looks very pictorial, with soft clouds, pure colors, and a complete absence of reflections on the paper (glazing, for framing, may add some). It will bring warmth and joyfulness to your room.

The Aquarelle Rag paper is available up to 111 cm (44”) on the shortest side (Museum Edition). If you want a bigger size, I will use Canson Edition Etching Rag 310g to print it, another beautiful matte paper, slightly textured.  

Satin - optionally (Baryta & Platine)

A satin paper provides a photo-realistic appearance to this artwork. It also works well with this photograph. It has more contrast, and the colors are slightly more vibrant. Be aware that this paper has an attenuated reflection and if placed in front of a window, or depending on the room lights, the reflection will appear. I will print it with Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag (Palace edition) and Canson Infinity Baryta Photographique (rest of editions).
