Stillness Monty Kaplan

‘Stillness’, by Berlin-based photographer Monty Kaplan (Argentina), is a solemn and contemplative piece that instils a sense of calmness and serenity in the viewer. Devoid of any solid objects serving as the central focus, light itself becomes the subject of the viewer’s gaze. The composition is harmoniously divided between two rectangular fields of sea and sky, only partially illuminated by daybreak and partitioned by the dawn rays reflecting off the distant water’s surface. Ripples catching the soft light on an otherwise still sea highlight the inky blue blacks of the water below, creating a rich and textured surface. At the same time, the complexity of the clouds above is captured in the muted colour scheme of the low light of the early morning sun. Tonally, the two halves complement each other and amplify the light that brings both out of invisible darkness.

Limited edition of 100.

Customers outside of Australia: We strongly recommend purchasing this piece as unframed ‘Print-Only’ artwork and having it framed locally using anti-reflection glass. Unfortunately, TCH cannot provide this option due to the cost of shipping this fragile glass material outside of Australia.Alternatively, please use the ‘Ask a Question’ feature below to request a quote for face-mounted anti-reflection acrylic glazing. Face-mounting is where artwork is directly bonded to anti-reflective acrylic perspex. Please provide the required size option.

Customers in Australia: We also strongly encourage our Australian-based customers to have the piece upgraded with anti-reflection glass. If you would like to upgrade to an anti-reflection glass option, please use the ‘Ask a Question’ feature below to request a quote mentioning the required size option.
