This image of a nautilus is sandwiched between two layers of plexiglass to protect it from moisture around the pool. The print is part of a 20 print collection permanently installed at the Grand Tier across from Lincoln Center on the upper west side of New York city.
This post-war 30 story high-rise was designed by famed architect Costas Kondylis, with interior spaces designed by renowned American Designer John Saladino.
Sandwiching the image between two layers of plexiglass made it possible to safely display the print in this moist environment. There are a number of solutions for displaying prints in challenging environmental conditions.

Sulfur is a by-product of oil refining and gas production. This mountain of sulfur was at the Hess refinery in St. Croix, US V.I.. The way that certain areas of the sulfur retained moisture and others dried combined with the way the sulfur pellets moved created this beautiful abstraction and range of rich color.
Subjects from the world of industry offer a surprising collection of strong graphic and colorful images which bring surprising energy into a space. When the subject is abstracted as it is here the result can introduce ambiguity which activates the imagination and invites your own interpretation. Because of the elemental nature of the shapes and the richness of the color the image can be appreciated for its intrinsic beauty.

Design found within industrial subjects can be powerfully graphic and colorful. This image is a detail of a blade of a Pratt & Whitney commercial aircraft engine. A moire image is created across the surface of the blade to reveal any imperfections.
These strong graphic and colorful images look wonderful, particularly within a modern architectural setting.
