Limited Edition Work Signed and Numbered by the Artist

Each work starts as a process of exploration, creating and destroying worlds in an endless quest for beauty.

The process takes place inside a blank digital canvas, a universe where anything is possible. It's a place where the laws of physics bend, where the evolution of a living system unfolds in minutes instead of aeons.

Matter appears and disappears. Is transformed. Transmuted.

What remains is a glimpse of eternity, a stolen instant of a living world never to be seen again.

All the work you see here is produced in Kodak Endura Metallic Archive Quality Paper in a Lighjet printer. The highest fidelity, biggest chromatic range printing process ever developed.
Photosensitive paper exposed with lasers, developed in a darkroom, encapsulated in acrylic and recesses mounted for what I consider the ultimate way to own and display the art.

All pieces are made to order. Custom sizes available - just Get In Touch with your specific size.

We work with two international freight forwarders who will provide all necessary paperwork so the art gets to you with as little hassle as possible. We pack each artwork in extensive bubble wrap before putting it in a double corrugated reinforced cardboard box straight in the lab, so it goes directly from the lab to you.

Note: For shipping outside the US you may have to pay duties / taxes upon arrival. These are the sole responsibility of the recipient. If you have questions regarding what taxes or duties might apply please give us a shout and we'll do our best to find out for you and make the process as painless as possible.

Our Offer: Try the artwork in your house risk free for 3 months. If for whatever reason you don't love it, return it for a full refund.

It is hard to appreciate the art via a computer screen. It comes nowhere near the experience of seeing it in person. Looking at how the materials interact with the light, appreciating the details, feeling the work. That's why we offer 3 months to appreciate the work risk free. We are that confident you will fall in love with it the moment you put it up on the wall.
You are liable only for return shipping (duties and taxes are not refundable). Does not apply on custom orders.

Is It A Photo? 
In short, no. it is not a photo. It is not even a digitally manipulated photo. For most of the artworks you see here no photographic images or reference were ever used. 
So what is it? It's a different form of art, one that deals in the simulation of digital universes. It is done by creating these unique worlds inside the computer and simulating their evolution through time. In some ways it resembles a lot our world, in other important ways it does not. It is a blank canvas in which to create anything you can imagine. It is a Canvas of the Imagination.

What is a Digital C Print 
The term C print stands for Chromogenic color prints. These are full color photographic prints made using traditional chemicals and processes. For Digital C prints, the material is exposed using lasers or LED lights. 
Is it possible to get the work framed other than the recess mount? 
Yes it is, we can offer a variety of frames from modern to traditional. It is also possible to order the art without the recess mount and frame it yourself locally.

What is a Limited Edition Work and how big are the editions.
All my pieces are limited editions works, meaning I only produce a certain amount and after that the work is never produced again. This ensures that the work holds it value and as my name becomes known perhaps appreciates through time.

My standard edition size is 95 pieces, I chose this size because I feel is strikes a good balance between the work required to produce the art (some pieces take my months), the price point at which most people are likely to buy it, and the exclusivity of the piece. All important points that must be taken into account.

That being said there are a few pieces which are 195, and some that are only 10. If you are curious about an individual piece please contact us.
