Et in Arcadia Ego : Hand painted screen print
"Et in Arcadia Ego" is a very interesting phrase found in art and alchemical history. Its literal meaning "even in Arcadia I", seems either unfinished or intentionally cryptic. Many believe it to read as "even in Arcadia (paradise) death is inevitable", conveying a deep memento mori.
This edition has been many years in the making. It was hand printed during my residency in Belfast and painstakingly customized on my travels spanning about 3 years.
Hand painted with acrylic ink, watercolor, and Copic markers, each piece is completely unique.
Stonehenge Grey hand torn sheets 15 x 22.5"
Image is approximately 11 x 16", as the margins are spacious.
Each print features a custom remarque (hand drawn image at bottom left).

This service includes a tracking number although it only displays information up to the point of leaving North America and arriving in the buyer's country. Often the longest delays occur after that point and there is no good solution other than waiting it out.
