Dark Fire - Metal Print
About the Artwork
My award-winning Darkfire is intended to be a very dramatic work. The picture can be simply described as a flip-flop chip mounted on a gold base with conductive epoxy ... boring, but accurate. The silicon chip, dark gray with fiery highlights and wires radiating, is the centerpiece. The gold background, with its bright reds and yellows, looks like the surface of the sun. The epoxy, with its dark shadows, is like a spectral mist coming off the chip. The analogy of fire is something I was trying to create. Chips are born of fire; really hot fire, like 2500F degrees. All of the processing steps that chips go through are at brutal temperatures and atmospheres. I wanted to translate this birth, this searing genesis, into a visually striking work. The whole scene seems like something out of Sci-Fi film.
About the PrintBring your artwork to life with the stylish lines and added depth of a metal print. Your image gets printed directly onto a sheet of 1/16" thick aluminum. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4" thick wooden frame which is attached to the back. The high gloss of the aluminum sheet complements the rich colors of any image to produce stunning results.
