Art print of a Gladiolus stem at the end of her best, exposed in sunlight for 24 hours. A single Gladiolus stem with three crimson blooms at the end of their best together in this fleeting moment, the sun leaving an X-ray of the petal's veins. Hang solo or compliment with another colour from the palette curated by Stacey - Dusk, Mustard, Leaf, Prussian and Ink.
Digitally created from an original Lumen print exposed and developed by Stacey. Some textures and halos are present from the exposure of the flower on the paper. This is part of the authenticity of this process. Scroll to view documented notes of the process
Lumen prints hark back to the beginning of camera-less photographs in the 1830's by placing an object directly on photographic paper and exposing in sunlight. The process evokes a certain charm of capturing the changing moments of nature's beauty.
