PROCESS

The same prints that you can order on this website as Ready-to-Frame Prints on 3mm PVC hardboard can also be the design directly applied to a wide variety of my designer apparel as well as other products found in MY STOREFRONT, hosted by LeGaleriste.com. The process is called sublimation.  All the fabric is 100% eco-friendly.  Only PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) is used and most of it is sourced from recycled plastic bottles.  The fabric is wrinkle free and colorfast.


My abstract prints are developed by photographically recording the chemical reactions that occur when liquid patina accelerants (available in many colors) and/or other chemicals are applied to the copper plate through myriad combinations and techniques.  Heat may come into play, organic materials may be added, various found objects or just time itself may help obtain the results.  The unusual aspect of my work derives from the point along the process I choose to capture the resulting chemical interactions.  The prints you see are the only record of each work’s process, as I rarely use the final stabilized plate as the subject photo. The most exciting and rewarding aspect of this work is the element of surprise in every piece.
