Exquisite Carbon pigment print is 40 x 48 inches, from John Casado who is inspired by the paintings of Francis Bacon and the beautiful abstractions of African Art, especially “their transformations of Figure into symbol.” In this vein, Casado’s iconic photographs are intended by the artist to unleash visions from the subconscious mind. Casado captures athletic figurative nudes who are always faceless, in a deliberate step away from eroticism. Originally created as a unique lith silver gelatin print, but now reproduced through a process of printing carbon on paper, the atmospheric image is monumental in scale, enabling a more intimate connection. A stunning work of art with the appearance of graphite drawing on paper, due to a wide tonal range of grey.
