Piece description from the artist
You need an impossibly colorful multi-lobed barrel cactus bursting from your wall to brighten a winter day. Made of scores of individual photographs and collaged together for a super-sharp (pun intended) mural with multiple planes of focus, this artwork will draw viewers in from a long distance to admire the more-than-life-size colorful needles. 42" high x 54" wide, with a one-inch gallery wrap, ready to hang. Limited to an edition of 40, and prices will go up as supplies dwindle.
Steve Farley took his first photograph with a Kodak Instamatic at the age of six. He has traveled the world ever since, finding engaging imagery everywhere, and bringing it back to us. Steve creates his large-scale photographs by digitally collaging many zoomed-in images to increase detail and reveal changing colors, movement, and angles.
Steve is also the public artist who invented a way to convert photographs into glazed ceramic tile murals using a process called Tilography. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Dallas, Norfolk, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, San Jose, Fort Lauderdale, and many other locations.
