In almost every work by Karl Hammer, the title clearly guides the content, but the attentive observer will find a multitude of added signals and hidden messages. In its title, the artwork Theater of Transiency says everything that can be said about such a theme. The girl can be seen twice as a character in the same photo, where she initially looks down as a dancer on a more mature version of herself, which then looks down on a skull (symbol of death) on which a pigeon lands (symbolism for 'peace with one's own mortality').

Work method
The way Karl often uses light and shadows is similar to the style of the old master painters, which is why his art often runs a thin line between a classic painting and a modern photograph. When Karl can't find the perfect set to make the art work that he wants, he simply creates it. He then scouts locations and combines this with specific props, sometimes shot in macro, and models using photo editing tools.

- Exclusive limited edition of 12

Special art print
Special art prints are issued in lower numbers and produced with superior printing techniques on extraordinary material with a high-end finish. The size of the work is often larger than the original and they come 'ready-to-hang' with a suspension system included.

The limited edition special art print "Theater of Transiency" by Karl Hammer bears the artist's signature and a handwritten edition number.

Certificate of authenticity
A unique certificate of authenticity is issued and included with every purchased print. The certificate contains an image of the artwork, material specifications and the edition number. The certificate is signed by the original artist and the master printer and carries the embossed Certified Art Giclée™ quality mark.

Lifelong warranty
Mr. Wallski offers a lifelong warranty on conservation and colour retention, provided you treat the print correctly. The certificate of authenticity is your proof of ownership. We therefore recommend that you keep the certificate in a safe and dry place.

Certified Liquid Gloss
The special art print "Theater of Transiency" of Karl Hammer is made using a special technique called Certified Liquid Gloss. The look and feel of Certified Liquid Gloss is definitely unique. It creates a great colour depth and gives the piece a very artistic appearance compared to other plexiglas products.

The Certified Liquid Gloss consists of a high-quality fine art print glued on a sheet of Dibond, which is cast in a special epoxy synthetic resin. The sloping edges create an optical effect and for that reason it is extremely popular among top photographers and artists. It comes with a ready-to-hang suspension system included.
