From The Garden metal print by Dave Turner. The art comes to life with the stylish lines and added depth of a metal print that is printed directly onto a sheet of 1/16" thick aluminum. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4" thick wooden frame which is attached to the back. The high gloss of the aluminum sheet complements the rich colors producing stunning results.
I pondered the story of The Garden of Eden and the concept of Original Sin. As I understand it, mankind was asked to leave the garden of Eden for acquiring knowledge. The pure geometry of the figure represents the perfection of man as created in the garden. In his hands knowledge. The long shadows speak to our journey into the darkness with the light. The figure was inspired in part by a character in one of my favorite Warner Brothers cartoons
