Clean Mind . . . Phrenology Style
This giclée art print is titled "Clean Mind". To create this mixed-media illustration I used a mixture of collage and traditional and digital painting.
See "Details" and "Story & Style" for more information.
Prints are available with or without a border. All sizes are signed on the back.
Borderless prints will pop right into any standard 8x10 frame. These are readily available at stores like Michaels, Target, IKEA, etc. Prints are also available with a small white border for framing with a mat if desired.
I use one of the finest and most archival pigment based inks available on the market. This ensures your print stays brilliant and fade-resistant over time.
The paper I use for my prints is a heavy weight Hahnemühle archival fine art paper. This is a matte paper that is 100% cotton rag, acid free and has the most lovely soft, old fashioned and museum quality feel to it. The paper not only has a beautiful richness but is also archival and fade-resistant.
I take great care in my packaging to prevent your print from being bent or creased during shipping. My prints are shipped flat and well protected in an archival sleeve with a white chipboard backing,inside a bend proof mailer with additional cardboard flat pads for extra assurance.
Phrenology has never been about real science, but as a pseudo-science it's kind of fun and over the years there have been a shocking number of images depicting where exactly certain parts of our emotions and behavior are "located" in the mind.
I've always had a bit of an aversion to censorship and am always a bit confounded by the reaction to some peoples frightful reaction to "vulgar" words. This is my play on my fascination with phrenology heads. I've updated this version to give our phrenology man laser eyes and a circuit board inspired background.
