"Invisible" is a hauntingly evocative painting that beckons the observer into a world where emotions intertwine with imagery. Its background, a gentle gradient of gray, shifts from a lighter tone on the left to a more profound shade on the right, subtly echoing the continuum of human feelings, from the ebbs of hope to the shadows of solitude, despair and obscurity.
Central to the artwork is the figure, visible from the wrists upwards, their hands resting tenderly in their lap. They don a medium-dark gray long-sleeved shirt, which, while distinct, still retains a semblance with the ambient background. The choice of color speaks volumes: the figure is there, yet on the precipice of blending in, of becoming one with the void.
The face, or the lack thereof, is where the painting's title truly takes form. Devoid of discernible facial features and awash with diffused blacks, it resembles a shadowy silhouette. This obscurity stirs a profound sense of mystery and melancholy. It captures the essence of invisibility, and more broadly, the human experience of feeling unseen or overlooked.
Yet, amidst this somber palette, a singular strand of dark hair cascades downward, reaching the collar of the shirt. It stands out, not just for its stark contrast against the muted tones of the painting, but as a reminder of the person's existence. The strand of hair feels like a silent rebellion, a scream into the void, a poignant reminder that beneath the surface of anonymity lies a unique individual with their own story to tell.
A glimpse of beige skin, visible between the collar and the neck, completes the canvas. It's a subtle hint of the human essence beneath the layers of obscurity, a nudge to the viewer of the soul yearning for recognition beneath the veil of invisibility. Yearning to be seen, acknowledged, and valued.
"Invisible" transcends the confines of the canvas. It is a profound exploration of the human psyche, a reflection on those moments when we feel overshadowed and it is a testament to the human condition, a portrayal of the deep-seated need to be recognized, and a reflection on the times when we feel most unseen. It urges the viewer to look deeper, to see the unseen, and to acknowledge the invisible stories that each of us carries within.

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.
