Graham Metcalfe - Artist / Photographer based in Scotland & Barbados:
Graham Metcalfe is a new and emerging British artist/photographer. His images form a series of impressionist photographs meditating on flowers and 'found' objects.
These images were produced over six months in 2005. His goal was to capture the spirit of the subject - in most cases a single flower head. The scale of the photograph reflects a powerful meditative beauty which Graham believes reaches out to the viewer and offer us a reflective moment within our busy lives.
Photographed on location and in studio in Scotland the camera images are digitally flattened to lift the image into world away from the vagaries of focus and technical details.
Prints produced on Hahnemuhle archival watercolour paper using using specialized pigment inks to provide superior image quality and maximum archival longevity. The prints are supplied rolled or between archival boards with a white core matte.
The images in this series are approximately 18x18 inch on 26x26 inch museum grade watercolour paper. (Framed on request - price on application)
