Significance of the artwork:

Surprise is always present in our lives. But you need to be observant to discover it (some of the Qantas flight passengers completed the journey without knowing about the snake).

Also, travelling – like reading – enriches our lives, adds context, helps to find who we are and who we want to be.

 

Description:

This artwork was inspired on the Cairns to Papua New Guinea Qantas flight, dated 10 January 2013, in which a passenger looking through the window discovered a 3-metre python on the plane wing. While I was living in Australia, I heard and read all kind of anecdotes about Australian wildlife, having come to the conclusion that everything is possible there.

This artwork, the first of Visions of Another Continent, represents how, when we travel for long periods, we always bring something, there is always something that changes inside. In my case, that was an increase in my passion for the wild and virgin nature, as well as for certain traits of the Australian lifestyle.

The airline logo shows Mount Uluru’s silhouette, under the six stars of the Australian flag, and a moon shaped like a boomerang, representing the aboriginal culture.

Media selection (paper finish)

Satin – artist’s recommendation (Baryta & Platine)

For this artwork, the artist prefers a satin finish paper: Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310 gsm (Palace Edition) and Baryta Photographique 310 gsm (rest of editions), which provide a photo-realistic appearance, with deeper blacks and higher contrast than a matte paper

Matte – optionally (Edition Etching)

A matte finish paper will provide a more pictorial look to this artwork. Although for this image this paper finish is not the artist’s preferred option, the appearance of the artwork using a matte paper is also undoubtedly good. If you are looking for a softer and more poetical look, or you are not very fan of satin papers, then go for this option. We will use Canson Infinity Edition Etching Rag 310 gsm, a slightly textured matte paper
