King salmon (also known as Chinook, Spring and Tyee) are the largest, richest salmon of the species, but they are rapidly disappearing. Overfishing, contaminating fish farms, pollution, dams, warming ocean temperatures and development have all led to the catastrophic decline in salmon populations. Considered a keystone species, salmon provide sustenance for a vast array of animals and organisms and play a crucial role in the health of west coast forests. Along with the fact that generations of First Nation communities have relied on salmon both culturally and economically, the importance of protecting and conserving salmon populations cannot be overstated.
Why Metal Prints?
Our aluminum clear gloss prints are made from 100% post consumer recycled metal and this delights us. We are always trying to find ways to make our products and creative processes more sustainable and printing our designs on metal reduces an enormous amount of waste. Our metal prints are 0.045 inches thick, surprisingly lightweight, permanent, durable, scratch resistant and can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth. Previously, I used an epoxy resin to finish the majority of my work because I loved the vibrancy and depth that resin offers. However, epoxy resined artwork creates an incredible amount of waste, is highly toxic and the finish itself is difficult to clean, easily scratched and adds considerable weight to finished pieces. Switching to clear gloss metal prints allows me to continue to offer work that has a clean, simple, frameless appearance. The gloss brushed silver also allows the metal to show through the lighter areas of my images and creates a unique, lively quality to my work while simultaneously highlighting the detail of each image.
