Description

The "Blue Bird Mine" series is based on a photograph of the Blue Bird Mine complex just outside of Nederland, CO, and the experience of walking through the surrounding Caribou Ranch Open Space. Each print offered in the series is unique (1 of 1) based on the colors of chine colle paper and the shapes used to block out parts of the image.

This listing is for prints from the series in standard 18" x 14" mats. The base image for each plate is a distressed photograph of the Blue Bird Mine complex transferred to a Solarplate (light- and water-sensitive polymer etching plate) printed on BFK Rives paper in blue-black ink. All prints were produced in 2016. The image is approximately 8" x 6" and professionally matted to fit a standard 18" x 14" frame. These prints are shipped bagged with a foam board backing.

Prints available:

Full Image with Green Background: The complete image with a green chine colle background. This print is in the style of traditional chine colle, with the colle paper, slightly larger than the plate, acting as a background. Black double-thickness mat.

Yellow Background with a Blocked Shape: To further break up the dark areas in the image, this print blocks ink in a shape separating the image into three areas. The yellow chine colle background flows through the image. Double mat, complementary gold with black undermat. (Note that the mat is aligned with the image and not with the chine colle background which is not a perfect rectangle.)
