Window to the Otways

Significance of the artwork:

This artwork shows how connected we are with nature, how it boosts our well-being. 

Description:

Some people confuse the image of the stream inside the window to the forests in my birth country. However, there is a distinctive feature that the attentive observer will not overlook: the presence of fern trees which give a prehistoric look to Australian subtropical forests. The facade belongs to the Prado Museum, the most important art gallery in Spain.

The beauty of these forests, with their abundance of species and fauna, causes a fascination for them that grows inside like the moss that covers the rocks of this stream. One would sometimes like to open a window, jump in and get lost in the leafy foliage of these wonderful places.

Editions 

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)

Window to the Otways looks much better using a satin paper, according to its author, who strongly prefers the photo-realistic appearance of the satin paper to provide veracity. The matte finish is too soft for this artwork. Therefore, the option of a matte paper is not provided on this occasion. Please use the contact form to request a matte paper in case you strongly prefer a matte finish.
