Moss Of Mystery

Charleston, South Carolina

Fine Art Limited Edition of 50 - This plant's specific name usneoides means "resembling Usnea", and it indeed superficially resembles its namesake Usnea, also known as beard lichen, but in fact Spanish moss is neither a moss nor a lichen. Instead, it is a flowering plant (angiosperm) in the family Bromeliaceae (the bromeliads) which grows hanging from tree branches in full sun through partial shade. Formerly this plant has been placed in the genera Anoplophytum, Caraguata, and Renealmia. The northern limit of its natural range is Northampton County, Virginia, with colonial-era reports in southern Maryland where no populations are now known to be extant. The primary range is in the southeastern United States (including Puerto Rico), through Argentina, growing where the climate is warm enough and has a relatively high average humidity. It has been introduced to similar locations around the world, including Hawaii and Australia. Photo © copyright by Aaron Reed.

LUMACHROME & FUJIFLEX ACRYLIC FINE ART PRINTS

LUMACHROME & FUJIFLEX ACRYLIC FINE ART PRINTS

The most incredible finished gallery quality pieces that I offer are original photo prints under acrylic glass (face mounted) produced with Lumachrome HD and FujiFlex Super Gloss photographic papers. These museum quality pieces are produced using the best available materials in the world today and are my top recommendation to clients and fellow photographers alike. This fine art process begins by producing a photographic print that is then face mounted from behind to a sheet of crystal clear, scratch resistant and non reflective acrylic glass. Prints produced this way show incredible visual depth and an almost 3d quality full of high definition details, beautiful tonal transitions and incredible vibrant colors.

Light that falls across and reflects off of the face of these prints is visually "trapped" within the acrylic glass and when properly lit, the artwork appears to be illuminated or back-lit. A ChromaLuxe (metal) print, while visually stunning, does not share this same reaction to light or apparent visual depth. Lumachrome & FujiFlex acrylic prints have a silver, almost pearl-like luminescence that adds to the overall luxury feel of these incredible pieces. As various qualities of changing light fall across the walls of your home, the luminescence of the art changes as well bringing the work to life before your very eyes.
