Futuristic Vision: Sci Fi Outer Space Cosmos Celestial Abstraction

$ 7,500
  • Description
    Decades before Photoshop and digital photography enabled the user to manipulate a photograph easily - Mitchell Funk created some of the most original, mind-bending, and technically brilliant images in analog. This work, "Futuristic Vision: Sci-Fi Other Space," is a composite of two inverted Transamerica Buildings on a 35mm piece of film. It was done in 1978, and that is six years after the completion of the futuristic Transamerica Pyramid Building - yet the building freshly evoked a sense of Sci-Fi with its radical design as it's pyamidal shape thrusts upward and into the future. Funk used it as inspiration and the central graphic element in his acutely graphic celestial composition. The image is as visionary as it is aesthetically groundbreaking while it arouses the viewers curiosity.
    Signed, dated, and numbered lower right 2/15 unframed, printed later - other sizes available. This work is printed on fine art Hahnemuhle paper.
