Limited edition prints are printed on demand. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery.
This limited edition Giclee print is a high quality reproduction of a semi abstract oil painting inspired by my time spent in the rainforests of Madagascar, Australia and South Africa.
My Giclee prints are generated from a high resolution digital scan and are printed on heavyweight 315 gsm fine art paper. The Giclee printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction, and archival quality inks ensure that the prints will not fade over time.
The print measures 40 x 40 cm, with a 3 cm white border. It is supplied unmounted.
I painted ‘Towards The Sun’ in celebration of Dom Phillips and Bruno Pereira, who were brutally murdered in the Vale do Javari region of the Brazilian Amazon rainforest (near the borders with Peru and Columbia) on the 5th June 2022. They were reporting on an intensifying conflict between the indigenous people (many of whom have never been in contact with modern society) and groups engaged in a range of illegal activities, including fishing, logging, mining and drug trafficking in their reserves.
£10 from the sale of every print will be donated to Rainforest Rescue, a charity that supports rainforest conservation efforts around the globe.
I wanted to create something colourful and joyful to commemorate two amazing people. ‘Towards The Sun’ was painted from my memories of time spent in tropical forests, especially Madagascar. I am fascinated by the transformative effects of light, and find few things more beautiful and uplifting than sunlight filtering through trees. ‘Towards The Sun’ is an expression of my hope for a better future; for our wonderful planet and the people who protect it.
