Giclée prints: are very high resolution ink jet prints printed onto thick cotton watercolour paper. They capture every nuance of the original works. Each print comes hand rolled in a sturdy tube.
Note: this listing is for the print only – the gallery photo showing the framed print is simply to give you an idea of how striking the prints look when mounted and framed.
Karen Alexander is widely admired for her beautiful drawings and painting of the crop circles, which encompass over twenty years experience of being involved first-hand in the subject. The original painting was hand drawn with compass and straight-edge and finished with drawing ink and watercolour paint. The print measures 30 x 30 centimetres (the image itself measures 20 x 20 centimetres). Each print is individually signed by the artist.
Ackling Dyke 2014: The marvellous crop circle at Ackling Dyke was one of a group of formations that employed five-fold geometry during the 2014 season. Here a central pentagram is complimented with a group of crescent moons, one between each of the points of the star. The general effect is one of a magical sigil, or perhaps a lunar symbol. Five is the number of life, it is found in the proportions of all living things and gives birth to both the Golden section and Fibonacci numbers. Five is also linked with the divine feminine through the star/planet Venus (which creates a pentagram around the Earth as it travels around the solar system – one pentagram every eight years), this linked with the lunar symbolism, gives this formation a powerful ‘feminine feel’.
