This is one of the new abstract series of paintings I have done called the "Spectra Series," shown in the image with the white sofa.Â Each of the series of abstracts explores the color and diffusion light with each of the primary colours of the spectrum.Â Of course this painting can be purchased individually or as part of the entire series. Each of these paintings is very large: 36" by 30" by 2" or 92cm by 76cm by 5cm.
This painting's heavy texture and bright primary colour of orange depicts an Awakening.
As a psychologist and artist, I combine my fields to create art that produces positive emotional responses and spiritual healing.
For safe and economical international shipment, the painting will be rolled in a heavy cardboard tube for stretching and/or framing when you receive it.Â If you want it shipped still on stretchers, please contact me for actual costs. I have used PostNet for packing and shipping via DHL for international shipments with great results.
This work is also available as a beautiful limited edition, giclee impression on canvas, starting at R1250.00. Each is numbered, signed and hand-embellished by the artist with his own varnish and paint technique. Thus, each canvas impression is a unique work of art and valuable as an investment piece.
Since these limited editions can be created in a variety of sizes, please email me for quotes.
The entire series would be ideal in a corporate, office, or a contemporary home.
Please allow 2 days for local delivery aroundÂ Cape Town, 1 week for national delivery in South Africa, and 3 weeks for International delivery outside South Africa (DHL).Â You may also pick up directly from our premises in Sea Point, Cape Town at no charge.
The original is gallery-wrapped but can easily be removed from the stretchers and rolled in a heavy cardboard tube for safe international shipment for $35.00.
