Eddie Colla Air Kowloon HPM's & Prints Release Details

Really excited about this new piece of work by Eddie Colla. After getting his "Radio Yau Ma Tei" print I was hooked on his work.

"This piece came about when I was watching old videos of landings from Kai Tak Aiport in Hong Kong which closed in 1998. The planes look as if they are gonna touch the roofs in Kowloon. I wanted to incorporate some of that atmosphere into this series because it gives such a strong sense of place and that sense of place or atmosphere is very important to this series. The boxes are on cradled birch and are all unique in that they are all hand collaged, painted and distressed. So from piece to piece they will vary quite a bit. " - Eddie Colla

Air Kowloon is being released in two forms; one is an edition of 25 that is 18 x 12 x 1.75 Inches Hand-Painted Multiple On Cradled Birch Wood Panel. They are all unique. Individually collaged and embellished there are 25 available. These were pretty time consuming to make. Each box is collaged with an archival glue and sealed with acrylic. The base is then painted with a shellac based paint and the image is sealed face down onto the box. The next step is to remove all of the paper from the original prints until the only thing remaining is the pigment. The bowes are then embellished again with an amber shellac and sanded and distressed and finally sealed with acrylic.

The other is a 18 x 12 Inches Archival Pigment Print on 330gsm Fine Art Paper with an edition of 30

Both are signed and numbered with a COA
