Corazón palma

Coconut Palm Heart

Photographic Collage

A Corozón to celebrate the coconuts and the palms. Las palmeras y cocos.

In spring the coconut palm blooms and sets fruit. When heavy with milk the coconut falls, hopefully avoiding someone’s head.

Sidewalk vendors use machetes opening the coconuts resting on blocks of ice. Drink the refreshing water, mildly sweet and milky. It’s filled with electrolytes and minerals, both hydrating and replenishing. Afterward, you can eat the fresh flesh.

It is nature’s health drink, to refresh your heart. Your Corozón.

EL CORAZÓN en español.
HEART in English

Both words technically mean the same thing.

Scrape the surface and an entire culture is revealed.

Heart — Valentine’s Day.  Cupid.   Bobby “Hearts” Judy.   I “Heart” NY.

El Corazón – passionate, loving, hot, intense and sometimes painful. It’s stripped of sentimentality. It is a physical organ, a beating heart, maintaining life. But it also is magical. The heart integrates and informs all aspects of a person, mind, will, emotions. El Corazón is the core or center of a person and the source of ultimate understanding. To understand the dynamics of Mexican spirituality is to understand El Corazón and the spiritual transformation that emerges.

Central to the Catholic faith. Some hearts are pierced by swords. St. Sebastian’s and Our Lady of Sorrows Corazón are filled with dolor, a deep resonate pain.

Corozones can also take wing,  held aloft by love. Amor.

Basic Material & Edge | Finish options below

Fine Art Paper Finishing

Unless otherwise requested, all fine art paper prints will come with a one-inch border for ease of framing.   If you don’t want a border, let me know.  The art looks beautiful without a border “floated” (placed on top) of matte board. 

There are several options with deckled edge which should be floated on a matte.  Please contact me to discuss the options.

Canvas Stretching

I print on two types of canvas, matte finish (an elegant, smooth flat finish) and gloss finish (shinier and reflective).  In general, I prefer the matte finish.  These can be thin stretched on ¾ inch stretcher bars.  They can be hung unframed or framed.  Some pieces can be gallery wrapped where the image wraps around the side.  Or the side can be white, black or a complimentary color that I usually choose to go with the artwork.  There are other options.  You can have the canvas stretched over 1.5 inch stretcher bars, a dramatic look. 

Metal Prints

The metal prints have the look of a plexiglass or acrylic print and are more economical.

The Metal Print with a Float Hanger  

The surface white Gloss Metal Prints has a white base to maximize color and contrast. Its high gloss surface provides a metallic look while preserving the white points in an image. Final product should display high level luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

Metal Silver Gloss

The surface has a clear metallic base providing a true metallic look. Higher gloss surface allowing a more silver appearance. Provides a maximum luminescence effect for seemingly superior image density and contrast.

I am happy to provide advice on framing and can help you with this process.  Contact me.  I love to work with my clients!
