Inspired by the accredited founder of Realism Gustave Courbet and his famous painting “The Origin of the World”.
This is the first in a very limited series of fine art digitally manipulated photographs, inspired by famous erotic artists of their time. ”The Origin of the New World, depicting a pregnant female, is a statement of its time, akin to Courbet’s famous Realism art movement, and a deviation from Imaginism into Realism for myself as an artist.
This unique artwork is an exceptional example of a modern-day take based on a classical master-piece. A statement of our times, both present and future. Additionally (and in distinct contrast to the usual characteristics of my work), this unique photographic work features much hand applied digital brushwork, finely rendered on canvas using state-of-the-art printing technology, under the direct supervision of the artist.
Ultrachrome archival print on Parrot Cotton Matte Canvas (18 mil). A unique edition of one (1/1 + 1 a.p.), signed on the rear by the artist. Measuring 55 cm x 55cm / 21.65″ x 21.65″ (unframed). Framing undertaken according to buyer’s personal preference. Certificate of Authenticity provided by the artist.
