About this artwork
Pigmented archival black ink on Baohong Artists watercolour paper.
"Once I had a love and it was devine
Soon found out I was losing my mind,
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, loves gone behind"
(From "Heart of Glass" by Blondie.)
High contrast, monochrome work appeals to me. I wanted to see what would happen if I pushed it further using black archival ink rather than charcoal. The experience took me back to the 80s, where in an art class I first used ink as a medium. Fittingly this piece has been named after a favorite band from that time period "Blondie."
Artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Kati Garrett Filho.
It has been brushed with a protective archival coat and is ready to be framed and added to your personal collection.
I sell my work unframed because I feel it’s a personal thing and find that most people would prefer to choose a frame that suits their decor, (plus it’s easier and safer to ship paper than glass.) However if you’d like the work framed, please get in touch.
NB: Unframed artwork comes wrapped in tissue, depending on size it will be either flat packed in supportive foam core or rolled with great care and placed in a mailing tube. (Once received, remove the art as soon as possible from the tube to allow it to rest.) Professional framing behind UV protective Art Glass (or Acrylic) is recommended.
