This print goes out to 2020, a year of trials and tribulations, and well...a dark ride to say the least.
We're proud to introduce our third print release of the year, Dark Ride, our largest print ever!An intricately layered, large format mixed-media print with deckled edges.
The Print: Dark Ride was printed on 20" x 40" Moab Entrada Natural Rag 290gsm, after three layers of screenprinting the prints are then torn down by hand, embossed and signed and numbered by James R. Eads in an edition of 90. The entire print was created in Los Angeles.
The Process: Dark Ride was originally created as a large gouache and pastel piece on wood panel in mid 2020. After completing the original, the piece was then professionally photographed and edited digitally. Prints are initially printed with a high quality printer on archival paper and are then finished with three layers of screenprinting. The first layer is a seafoam glitter that sparkles in the crashing waterfalls. The second layer is applied variegated gold leaf in the sky under the bridge and the third layer is applied genuine gold leaf water reflections and text in the border of the print. Prints are then hand deckled and signed and numbered in a limited edition of 90.
