Here you have the piece entitled 13th Floor Leithers.
On canvas – and, at close to a metre and a half long – it’s nearly as far as I can stretch.
Producing a piece like this is extremely time-consuming. It’s the most expensive piece I’ve ever had printed. I don’t want to give away many of the secrets to my art. Suffice to say, 13th Floor Leithers makes use of 44 discrete photographs.
Getting from principal photography, through post-production, and onto running off initial test prints, took about three weeks. Once I saw this on poster paper I knew this had to go on canvas. Reactions from those who saw that print simply confirmed it.
The spire seen in this excerpt is that of North Leith Parish church.
On the full-sized print, the castle is near the left ; on the right, the three bridges across the river Forth. From one side of the image to the other covers approximately ten miles.
Considering I said this was at my arm’s stretch, I should provide photographic proof of the claim. Well, here you go. The church behind me is roughly centred in the full print; sitting on North Junction Street, opposite the end of Admiralty Street.
For those not in the know, that church houses Leith School of Art. No I am not a student; nor am I an alumni.
I will not be shipping this product for the time being. Purchases in-person are preferred. The piece is currently on display in Joseph Pierce’s at the foot of Elm Row in Edinburgh.
However, I am happy to discuss shipping an unmounted – and rolled – copy of the canvas. This would be reduced from the price quoted herein as customers would be expected to arrange stretching onto a frame at their own expense – and risk!
