Japanese Mountains (Kumamoto Prefecture)
About this artwork
This image came from a trip to the Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan's west coast. In the distance across the valley Mt. Aso is erupting. I used this image as the base for the piece and then went in and enhanced the colors to reflect the mood of the imagery. I then printed the image large scale and attached it to a framed steel panel I fabricated by hand in my studio. At that point I used epoxy resin to affix a layer of broken safety glass to the surface of the image for a macro distortion. This piece is framed in 1/4 blackened steel with a brushed steel front edge. The entire panel and frame are constructed from steel. There is a red oak french cleat attached to the back for hanging. This work is finished with a layer of fractured safety glass attached with epoxy resin. It looks like a million diamonds on the surface of the image and will grab light from your space and sparkle.
