In December 2010, Galeria Kalona in Las Penas, Guayaquil, featured my latest show, Flora de Ecuador: Sin Marcos. The main theme of the images in this show is the flora of Ecuador, with water being the secondary theme. I also snuck in a favourite image of mine from Canada because it compliments the show stopper in this collection.
All of the pieces in this collection have been seen on the blog before, but all but one had never been printed before. Seeing them in large sizes printed in giclee cannot compare to seeing them on a computer screen. Watching them come off the printer at the gallery in Toronto where I print, Proof Studio Gallery in the Distillery District, was a wonderful experience.
The pieces, printed in giclee on cotton paper in various sizes, were shown unframed (sin marcos), and are available for purchase in Galeria Kalona. By not framing, it is easier for tourists to transport the pieces and also allows for the collector to frame to their taste to fit in with their existing decor. All pieces are signed and numbered in limited edition, and can be shipped upon request.
The pieces have been very well recieved; most people are struck by the strong, vibrant colours as well as the composition and quality of the prints. Many people mistake them for paintings.
Many thanks to Isabel and Cuervo for their continued support and love.
