Product Overview

  Location: Gainesville, Florida USA • University of Florida  
  Description: The Sunflower is one of the most iconic flowers in art.  Countless representations from artists like Vincent Van Gogh to Georgia O'Keeffe have celebrated the natural beauty and vibrance of this annual which is native to the Americas.  The sunflower represents the Sun, life, power and serenity.  Via my unique infrared perspective, I offer my own interpretation of the radiant sunflower.  
  Type: Near-Infrared Photography  


Museum Quality Archival PEARL Silver Halide Fine Art Prints [FAP]:

Silver Halide PEARL (Metallic) Art Print with unparalleled 3-D depth, tone & sharpness as compared to regular prints. This museum quality archival paper and process uses a patented combination of film and laminate layers that result in a striking, 3-Dimensional, extremely vivid, lasting image on an ultra-bright pearlescent / metallic background (archival value rated at 100 years in home display and 200 years in dark storage). Available options are "Print Only", "Print with Mat & Backing" and "Fully Gallery Framed."

PEARL paper contains a very special component: pearly mica crystals. Based on the natural mica, they are covered with a thin layer of metal oxides, for example, titanium dioxide. Through an interplay of transparency, refraction, coating and multiple reflections, one can discern silver-white and metallic reflection effects. Depending on the display and lighting (natural light, incandescent, halogen, flourescent, etc.) the microscopic pearly mica crystals capture light in varied ways to offer a truly vibrant photo.  These lend pictures such an intense warmth and depth; they become a true sensation for the eye.

NEW!!! - METAL PRINTS Infused on Aluminum -- Art Photography's "High Definiton" Display!


My art reaches a whole new level of vibrancy and clarity. Although my silver halide photographic art prints are very high quality, you will be amazed by these modern aluminum prints -- It's like the first time you saw an HDTV! An advanced chemical sublimation process infuses photos onto polished aluminum with amazing HD clarity – Museum quality, scratch resistant, water-proof, archival, lightweight and no glass or matting necessary. These ultra modern prints on an aluminum substrate were once only available for museum & commercial display ... Now it is available for your home and office with many sizes to chose from.


The delicate and unique process in making these stunning artworks on the aluminum display is actually quite comparable in price to regular "framed / matted / fragile glass" prints.  It is actually less expensive with larger sizes (when one accounts for the cost of framing regular prints with the wood frame, mat & glass).   Also, the advantages of METAL ART PRINTS are extensive -- Some benefits include:


  • VISUALLY SUPERIOR -- The optical clarity, rich tones and almost 3-Dimensional vivid feel of these metal prints is absolutely stunning ... Nothing compares to them.
  • WATERPROOF -- Artwork can be displayed in a master bath or covered porch (no direct sunlight).  Will not be hurt by humidity or when sprayed with water!
  • SCRATCH RESISTANT -- Very resilient and scratch resistant finish (comparable to a high end automobile paint finish).
  • NO GLASS  -- No glass required makes this media very lightweight, very safe (no fear of broken glass) and gives you a clear, direct-view, of the art.
  • NO MATTING • FULL EDGE-to-EDGE VIEW -- "No matting required" offers a full edge-to-edge display of your Hugo Cruz artwork.  Also, it provides for smaller wall space footprint (i.e. the total outside dimensions for a 36"x24" METAL PRINT will be nearly the same while a glass matted and framed 36"x24" print will have a total outside dimension of 49"x37" or more).
  • ARCHIVAL & EXTREMELY RESILIENT -- Your Hugo Cruz METAL ART PRINTS will virtually last forever (rated at 300+ years).
  • UV RESISTANT -- A UV resistant coating is characteristic of the process.  However, as with ANY fine artwork, no coating or work is UV proof.  Your artwork will fade over time when placed in direct sunlight.
  • MODERN, CONTEMPORARY with the "WOW!" Factor -- Vibrant and modern with the eye-catching "wow" effect, your Hugo Cruz METAL PRINT will be a focal point in any room.  METAL PRINTS are framed in an unobtrusive, elegant and lightweight aluminum frame with a brushed finish.
