About the Artwork:
“This giclee print is printed on 100% acid-free, 255 gsm paper, 18ML, .02 inch thickness. It’s thick and feels solid to the touch. Thicker paper means I can lay down more ink, and more ink means a deeper, richer print. The inks I use will not fade for 100 years according to the manufacturer. The finish is semi-gloss.
This print will be signed on the IMAGE, NOT on the white outer boarder of the print.“ – Robert Steven Connett
About the Artist:
Robert Steven Connett’s beautifully realised visions of an unseen world teeming with vibrant and complex lifeforms, open windows into a universe that we rarely contemplate and most often simply forget exists. Microscopic biological phenomena of the natural world, within both flora and fauna, and particularly that of oceanic origins, provides Connett with bountiful inspirations and his unbridled passion and colourful imagination ensure his creations rise above the natural and inhabit a sphere somewhere between the familiar and the extraordinary. Connett masterfully brings a sumptuous and bizarre underworld into existence and prompts us to ask questions about our perceptions of the world around us and more importantly about our place within it.
