"Back Turned" is a profoundly moving and expressive painting that invites the viewer into a scene of inner conflict and the disintegration of a man's faith. The background, composed of a diffused sky of light and dark grays, sets a melancholic tone. The subdued palette allows the other elements of the painting to stand out while the sky seems to mirror the man's internal struggle.
The slightly uneven ground, composed of dirt and lifeless patches of grass, amplifies the sense of desolation and forsakenness. This desolate landscape serves as a visual representation of the man's inner emptiness, mirroring the hollowness left by the collapse of his beliefs.
Dominating the foreground, a large, imposing stone cross stands as a testament to the steadfast faith that once guided the man's life. The rough texture and worn appearance of the cross symbolize its endurance, in stark contrast to the man's wavering convictions.
Behind and to the left of the cross, the man stands with his back turned, facing away from the emblem of faith. This positioning poignantly depicts his internal struggle and eventual detachment from his spiritual foundation. The man's body language and overall demeanor communicate feelings of loss and disorientation as he grapples with the ramifications of his spiritual collapse.
"Back Turned" is an evocative and contemplative painting that encourages the viewer to reflect on themes of faith, loss, and the intricate tapestry of human experience. Fusing a bleak landscape with a lone, enigmatic figure, conveys the raw emotions and unrest that accompany the dissolution of faith and the ensuing quest for meaning in one's existence.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
