Additional Information

Secure Handshake Framed

The Secure Handshake is a metaphorical artwork representing the closing of a high finance level business deal.  The suits of blue and grey represent either two business tycoons or a lawyer and an accountant but they are locked in a handshake from which neither can be removed, although they may flex about.  Which ever way one goes, the other goes with them.  It’s an iron clad deal.  The abstract face-to-face heads butting up to each other in the background are stern, implacable, stoic and relentless.  This agreement is forged in steel.  It’s not a moral statement or a judgement, but rather just a depiction of high level business as it’s done every day and it’s no place for the soft hearted.  It’s cold and neutral colours, hard sharp edges and angular forms.  It’s steel, but it’s polished and formal.

If you study the piece up close you will see the fabric texture, and every thread of the sewed button holes.  The steel looks like polished chromium, but it is entirely made of paper, hand coloured with permanent inks.  The background is hot pressed Arches of France watercolour paper overlaid with 8gsm JapaneseTengushu.  The hands are of mould-made hot-pressed stocks.  The threads are created by fine slicing of paper strips.

A white box frame with glazing protects the art and enhances the dimensional intrigue of the art.
