Art itself is about extending the artist’s experiential perspective toward an audience. Similar to a pencil or a paintbrush, a camera is merely a tool to capture and frame these moments in time. A photograph becomes an artwork once a personal moment becomes a sharable eternal one.
An artist’s subject is chosen to express that which they wish to bring into everyday. Just like a walk through the forest or sunbathing on a shoreline, nature photography creates subjective experiences. Subjectivity is the foundation of all art, and it is interpretation which makes the landscapes and wildlife come to life.
Limited edition means that there will only be a pre-determined number of pieces produced of each photograph. Limited editions for the Karen Cooper Gallery apply only to the larger pieces, pieces which will have the smallest dimension of 30 inches or more; for example the smallest piece in an edition might be 30” x 45”. The typical number for the Karen Cooper Gallery is 300 which include one Artist Proof and 299 reproductions.
The Karen Cooper Gallery does not itself directly print the photographs. Quality, archival printing is a specialty product requiring experience, skill, and professional equipment. The gallery takes great care and effort in sourcing professional labs to ensure that all printing is of the absolute finest quality.
