Part of my door obsession stems from the beautiful embellishments that are commonly found on European doors. This brass lion shines out from what would otherwise be a plain door. You can’t go wrong adding a touch of glamour to mundane objects. My suburban neighbourhood in particular could stand some bedazzling with architectural ornaments.
My artworks are toner photo prints, handcrafted on 8×8″ wood blocks. To differentiate them from my regular photo blocks, I am adding a metal leaf border and a cast-metal fleur de lys clavos at the corner of each piece, which will come with a signed certificate of authenticity indicating that it is a unique print created for the “City of Delight” project. The blocks are freestanding but can also be mounted using hanging hardware (I can provide this upon request, at extra cost). I have set the price of each piece at $75 to reflect Paris’ famous “75” postcode. 20% of my profits will be donated to UNESCO and the UNHCR at the end of 2016.
