This image is part of the current exhibition up at St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas. All the sales from the show will be handled by myself so I tried to make it easy for you if you're interested in making a purchase! All the work displayed in the show is in this specific shop category.
Please read: Unless arranged beforehand, I will ship the week after the show ends (The show ends Nov 12th), free shipping. If you live in San Antonio or will be in town, we can arrange for work to be picked up in person, just let me know in advance!
If you are viewing this listing without seeing the work in person, please know I did my best to accurately document what the print looks like. Prints are all handmade and have their own unique personalities!
Agave - negative: Cyanotype toned in wheatgrass and black tea
Please see detailed photos of why I marked this down! This paper took a really long soak in both a wheatgrass bath then black tea-- and when I was lifting it out of the tray the edges tore a little. They're re-inforced on the back of the print with linen tape, but still... they're there and I wanted it to be clear in this listing. I didn't mark this price for the show because I'd need to explain and that seemed too fussy!
The image is from a black and white Polaroid emulsion lift (the original lift is in the section of the show with all the framed lifts!)
Paper size of image is approx. 16x20 and the image is border to border, full size
These larger prints are UNFRAMED but hang from strong, magnetic poster frames for the display.
These are included in the sale of the work. They’re a nice, warm, medium brown, teak wood and hold the print securely. I added strips of archival linen tape to the top and bottom to reinforce the paper, which is already a sturdy, heavyweight watercolor paper.
I titled and signed the fronts of the prints as part of the image, but also included the information on the back, including a date. I coated the front with a diluted artist acrylic medium to help prevent damage from UV light and moisture, but of course care should still be taken when choosing where to display it!
If you choose to frame this, cyanotypes (or any artwork) should never be pressed directly against plexi or glass, and if matted, cyanotypes require an unbuffered rag to keep the work from being contaminated. Unbuffered is different than acid-free. Cyanotypes need a low-alkaline environment. Unbuffered mats prevent degradation due to chemical reactions between the buffering agent and the materials in the art.
