"Where The Shadows Lie" is an enthralling painting that transports its viewers to the dark and menacing land of Mordor from J.R.R. Tolkien's epic saga, The Lord of the Rings. The title is from the last line of the Ring Verse, "In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

The foreground of the composition is dominated by the craggy, desolate terrain that characterizes the Pass of Cirith Ungol. The treacherous path, notorious for its role in the story, winds its way up the mountains, shrouded in shadows and filled with a palpable sense of impending doom and menace.

In the background, the jagged peaks and towering cliffs of Mordor loom, casting a sinister presence over the scene. A blood-red glow, originating from the fiery chasms that scar the land, provides the primary source of light. This eerie illumination casts long, sinister shadows across the landscape, emphasizing the stark contrast between light and darkness—a visual metaphor for the eternal struggle between good and evil.

The sky above is filled with churning, black clouds that seem to writhe and swirl, heightening the sense of unease and oppression that pervades the scene. Amidst the darkness, there is a symbol of hope: a small opening in the clouds on the right side of the canvas. This break in the storm allows a faint, ethereal light to pierce through the gloom, reminding viewers that even in the darkest moments, there is still a glimmer of hope and the potential for redemption.

"Where The Shadows Lie" is an evocative and powerful work of art that not only captures the desolation and malevolence of Mordor but also serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring themes of hope, courage, and resilience found within Tolkien's beloved tale. The painting's focus on the Pass of Cirith Ungol in the foreground is sure to captivate and enchant viewers, stirring their imaginations and inspiring introspection for generations to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is All-Over-Print (AOP)?

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.

What is Giclée?

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.

What is a gallery wrap canvas?

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.

What is a gallery mirror wrap canvas?

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.
