Edition of 10
This is a limited, hand-pressed linocut print run inspired by the African sun. In ancient history, the sun was worshipped as it was seen as the giver of life. The piece is meant to look unfinished to ad movement and dynamics. This also means that each print edition will be slightly different in its finish ensuring a one of a kind quality.
Growing up in the Klein Karoo, Chris was influenced from a young age by humble surroundings. It was here where he developed his imagination that would eventually fuel his creativity. Mostly known for his photography and manipulation techniques, Slabber likes to focus on the subconscious. "My goal is to give the audience an escape from their reality. A chance to forget about the physical realm. Art should be a release and not a reminder."
