High hopes

High hopes

Ross Sea, Antarctica

LIMITED EDITION

A group of Adelie Penguins climb to the highest point of a floating iceberg, whilst all around them the sky is filled with Skuas. Living alongside the penguin colonies, Skuas are a predatory bird whom target the eggs and penguin chicks.

I can't help but wonder why the penguins have climbed to the highest point? Is the elevation a position of safety for the penguins, so they can keep an eye out for danger?

Or (my favourite theory) is it just a case of flying envy and their way of reaching for the sky?

MINI PRINT

Available in A4 and A3 size, these unframed prints are our most affordable prints. Printed on gallery quality Smooth Pearl Photo Paper with a white border.

FINE ART PRINT

Printed on 100% Cotton Rag Fine Art paper, this is one of the best photographic finishes available. All prints are printed with a white border.

CLASSIC FRAMED PRINT 

Our Classic Frame features a low profile frame, with a spacer to keep the glass away from the surface of the print. Available in Matte White, Matte Black or Natural Oak finish. All pricing is based on standard glass, with options also available for UV Anti-glare glass*. See pricing options on our Price List page. *Available by special request.

SHADOWBOX FRAMED PRINT 

Our Shadowbox Frame gives a premium 'art gallery' look. This box frame is deeper, with the glass mounted forward of the print to heighten the sense of depth. Available in Matte White, Matte Black or Natural Oak finish. All pricing is based on standard glass, with options also available for UV Anti-glare Glass*. See pricing options on our Price List page. *Available by special request.

GLASS OPTIONS

Our pricing allows for standard glass on all framed prints, however I would highly recommend upgrading to the UV Anti-glare Glass*. This premium glass will protect your print against UV rays, as well as offering excellent anti-glare properties to cut out most reflections. See pricing options on our Price List page. *Available by special request.

CANVAS FRAMED PRINT

Canvas is the perfect solution for brightly lit rooms or apartments because it isn’t reflective. We print on a high quality Canson canvas using archival inks and sealed with UV liquid laminate for maximum protection. All canvases are stretched over a wooden frame and mounted to 'float' inside inside a deep Shadow Box Frame. Unframed Canvases are available by special request.

METAL FRAMELESS PRINTS

These stunning Metal Prints are sure to make a real statement on your wall. Featuring an invisible mount hanging system, they are easy and lightweight to hang anywhere. They are however highly reflective, so avoid hanging in brightly lit locations near windows.

ACRYLIC FRAMELESS PRINTS

A photographic print is mounted between two plexiglas sheets (photo-grade acrylic) and the edges diamond polished. Featuring an invisible mount hanging system, they are easy and lightweight to hang anywhere.

IMAGE SIZE / WHITE BORDER

The listed print size is for the image itself (ie not including the signature area, white border and frame)*. Typically the ‘printed’ white border will be around 6cm to 11cm depending on the size of the print itself. For a more modern look, the print is now framed (as of January 2024) using this white border in place of using a traditional mat. 

CROP FORMAT

Images are displayed on the website in our preferred format (usually either 2:3 ratio or 1:2 panoramic), however most are available in other configurations and custom sizes. Prints can also be finished to the frame edge without the white border. Please email or call into the gallery with your requirements so we can provide a customised quote.

* Note: Mini Prints include a small white border, which is designed to fit within an A4 or A3 mat window. As such the printed image is slightly smaller to allow for this title and signature area.

These exclusive prints are only offered on 100% cotton museum grade white Fine Art photo paper. They are finished by hand with Wayne’s signature, print edition number, image title and date (appearing underneath the photo within the white border). This will also be accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

All such prints are not part of a numbered set and are considered Open Edition Prints.
