The art print is made from an original drawing with thousands of dots made by hand. It is hot foil printed* to the highest standard on 270 gsm textured white art paper pressed with gold metallic foil. The hint of metallic foil means that it changes as the light hits it, or as you move around a room. The art print is sold unframed and carefully wrapped in silk paper and shipped in a cardboard tube.
ABOUT THE WORK
This print is a part of the “Black Sun” collection: "The artworks are an interpretation of the nature phenomenon 'Sort sol' (Danish for 'Black sun'). 'Sort sol' is a nature phenomenon in the marshlands in southwestern Jutland, Denmark.
Very large numbers of migrational starlings gather there in spring and autumn when they move between their winter grounds in southern Europe and their summer breeding grounds in Scandinavia and other countries near the Baltic Sea. 'Sort sol' takes place in the hours just after sunset. The birds gather in large flocks and form huge formations in the sky just before they decide for a location to roost for the night."
* Hot foil printing is a very exclusive printing technique that transfers metallic foils to paper at high temperatures with a metallic matrix.
