Ironwork Specimen Panel

Color Photograph

Created by Lisa A. Frank
In the late 19th century British tradition, this piece would be referred to as a "decorator's specimen panel." These panels were floor-to-ceiling "runs" of wallpaper, each including any number of architectural trompe l'oeil details such as wainscoting, friezes, borders, and swags, as well as soft adornments such as tassels and ribbon.

This collection of wallpaper panels are elaborately constructed from hundreds of digital photographs. Combinations of motifs are sewn together through image layering and masking. Often working with over 100 layers, a photographic grouping is created and then given a repeat structure - a textile design term referring to the way a pattern is set up to tile seamlessly in any direction. The ability of these patterns to endlessly tile creates the potential for multiple-sized works ranging from large individual prints to full room installations.

These pieces are also offered in three sizes. The smaller sizes resemble the scale and intimacy of architectural renderings.

This is an archival print produced by the artist. Small: Limited edition of 30. Medium: Limited edition of 20. Large: Limited edition of 15.
