How To Buy
Mark Lindquist's Abstract Photographs
|Each abstract photo I make is
unique. I don't do editions. Every time I print an image, I go back to
the original camera file or composite, and reproduce the image, using
new software or techniques as they evolve in the digital photography
world. I create several new test prints to assure that the print
conforms to my original vision while also reflecting any enhancements
to the process at the time of the printing. Each final print will have
its own unique quality which may vary from the images on the screen or
prior prints of the same titled artwork.
In many cases, I make the
final print myself; in other cases I send the image out to be printed
by expert custom printers using equipment costing hundreds of
thousands of dollars to produce highly technical prints that I cannot
produce in my studio.
To buy an image, simply email me at

and let me know you have an interest in purchasing a print and we can
begin a dialogue about size and type of print. Each print I make is
custom, so prices vary accordingly. Packing and shipping is
additional, and crating is available for large artworks. Prices range
from $250 for the smallest print available (8" x 10") to $10,000 for
custom stretched and finished 36" x 54" canvases. Large custom
resin-coated prints and special size dye sublimation prints (60" +)
may be more.
In every case, I strive to offer a custom, creative purchasing
experience and promise to deliver exquisite, museum-quality work at

My canvas prints are specially printed using the highest quality archival
canvas with 200 year archival longevity inks. The canvas is machine
and hand-stretched, and finished with archival coating to ensure UV
protection and longevity. Exceptional care is given to ensure a
beautiful object of museum quality. Generally, my canvas prints are
in sizes for large verticals, 36" x 54", Large Horizontals, 30" x 45", and
square images are typically 38" x 38". Smaller and larger prints are

Dye Sublimation Prints - the image is infused into the
surface of a solid sheet of metal (aluminum). Rich iridescent sheen,
bright vivid colors, and a life-line depth of detail that can't be matched
by conventional paper prints.
The image is waterproof,
weatherproof, and scratch resistant and can even be cleaned with glass
cleaner. A floating mount suspends the image ½" away from the
surface of the wall.

Original photo prints mounted under special resin:
Crystal clear and glossy with rounded edges mounted on aluminum. The photo
print (on archival photo paper) is laminated onto a strong aluminum Dibond
base. The image is immersed within a transparent composite resin. The
process produces rounded edges and the impression of being surrounded by a
glass droplet. The extremely glossy resin gives the image profound depth,
brings out the finest details, and ensures the images have maximum
luminosity. Highly hand-labor intensive, requires approximately 1
month to produce.
