This piece sees another of REK’s favourite subjects, Shadow the hyacinth macaw, in a stand-off against his own mirror image.
REK begins to explore the concept of arranging his subjects in architectural and emblematic configurations – his commentary broadens from the real threat faced by all wildlife through habitat loss, into the use of wildlife as simply exotic objects to be used for our own decoration and fascination.
This extremely limited release of only 50 fine art reproduction prints are created on Cotton Rag Paper (this is not paper at all but is in fact very fine cotton fibres woven into a paper-like product) Cotton Rag is the media of choice due to its archival qualities and similarities to the paper artists paint on.
The highest quality 300-320gsm and Printed with Canon Lucia EX Pigment inks - long lasting, archival - tested to last 80-100 years.
** Fine art Cotton Rag Reproductions should be framed behind glass, using a matte to separate them from the glass. Consult your local framer for the best way to frame your work.
