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.
Marden Henge 2013: This lovely circle appeared close to the close of the 2013 crop circle season and lasted only a few short hours before it was harvested by the farmer. The formation employed twelve-fold geometry and nested twelve ‘water droplet’ shapes to create a very striking design. The number twelve is ubiquitous throughout human measuring system and is the root of the classical imperial measures of feet and inches. We divide out days and nights by twelve, our year into twelve months and our skies into twelve zodiacal constellations. The were 12 tribes of Israel and twelve disciples of Christ. This list is almost endless, but is almost always connected by units of measure. Finally, there is a hidden square within this deign which proportions the size of the inner pattern to the outer ring, so this circle too speaks of the marriage of the heavenly circle and the earthly square.
