An archival metallic chromogenic print is flush mounted between a durable core of UV protected plexiglass with a gloss finish. This piece floats off the wall about an inch and a half due to a special hanging system known as a French Cleat. These works require a custom crate to be built for the safest of journey during shipping. The three dimensional, iridescent, rich quality of the print and clean presentation of the plexiglass with no frame is a contemporary look and feel juxtaposed to the raw and wild nature of these majestic creatures. Non-Glare available upon request with an up charge. INQUIRE HERE

These pieces also require a custom crate to be built in for safety during shipping. (Metal Sublimations largest available size is 48 x 72)
Because prints are very fragile, they shouldn't be stored in the tube for extended periods of time. Make sure to open the package within 24-48 hrs of receiving it and take it to a professional framer as soon as possible for opening and archival dry mounting. Handling your large print yourself could result in wrinkles or tears. In the unlikely event of damage, please see policy HERE.
FRAMING: It is not uncommon for prints to have a strong curl to them when first unrolled. Discuss with your professional framer about dry-mounting your print, using archival materials only, to ensure it will remain flat once framed.
PLACEMENT: All artworks should not be placed in direct sunlight to avoid any fading over time.
ABOUT THE PIECE
UTAH STALLIONS, 2020
“Apparently” we have evolved, yet select wildlife, along with the lands they live on, and their rightful place - needs to be proven. Specifically when these wild lives or wild places have monetary value for special interest groups. Hence the friction between those honoring wildlife and wild places, and those looking to fill their greedy monetary pots of gold.
For years I have talked about wild horses being included in the wildlife conversation. Many times, meeting opposition from wild horse advocates, stating it’s not possible. The hard work organizations such as AWHC have done, the droves of wild horse advocates that have erupted in recent years and supporters such as yourself, asking questions and finding answers, has made this a reality.
Wildlife isn’t just for lions, tigers and bears any longer. Intuitively, I resonate with the shamans and sages, but thankfully in the current world we live in, scientists are assisting in protecting wildlife through their special skill sets of fossils, facts and data to help us along on the journey of protecting sacred creatures and sacred lands.
During the start of the pandemic a brilliant idea was sparked through the talents of two amazing wildlife conservation photographers called @printsforwildlife The pandemic brought a screeching halt to much of Africa’s economy which is heavily based on tourism. I’m so very honored to share that I was a participating photographer in the third edition of this much anticipated, month-long, fundraiser, which includes some big names in wildlife(I've purchased 3 in total). And more importantly, that wild horses are in fact, being included in the wildlife arena! All works were 100% donated by 220 photographers with one goal in mind - to give back to conservation.
To have had this image included in that dialog was such a significant honor. Representing the under-represented matters. xokc
