Description
Christian Nze (1971-) - Still Life IV
Platinotype - Artist's stamp, Signed - 2003

Exquisite hand printed platinum/palladium photograph by Christian Nze (b. 1971, based in Vire, Normandy). Matted to 11”x14” and signed and numbered on mat. On hand coated Arches Platine 310 paper. Signed, titled and numbered “1/15” under image and on label verso. Nze’s Platinum prints have been exhibited in exhibitions in Europe, China and the USA and are in collections globally.

He works extensively with large format cameras and this is contact printed from the original full plate 7”x9” negative. This is a stunning print with fantastic tonal range, on a par with a Mapplethorpe.

Platinum is, of all forms of photography, the most luminous, archival and rare. Although difficult, time consuming and costly to create, platinum prints are the sine-qua-non of photographic art. There are rarely more than a handful of prints made and by the very nature of the process, each platinum print is unique. Retail for this print would be over €500.

Purchased directly from the artist in 2003, will be sent by Express Courier.
