This is the second painting in the strange-fiction steampunk art series “Airships and Tentacles” wherein the works of, concepts of, and influences from Jules Verne and H.P. Lovecraft intermingle.
The original image was commissioned for Josh Pfeiffer of Vernian Process for the album “Behold the Machine”, and it includes the HMS Gadreel above an icy sea investigating a strange and perhaps long-forgotten and possibly alien craft. Ghostly figures twist and turn within the mists, clouds, icebergs, and waves.
These 50 giclees are printed in Epson Ultra Chrome k3 archival inks on high-quality 350 g/m2 gloss canvas. They are stretched and mounted, uv-sealed for a longevity of about 200+ years, hand-signed, and gallery-wrapped. They are documented with a hologrammed and serialized certificates of authenticity from Hahnemuhle, with a matching hologram affixed to the work.
