The art of the game – polo

The art of the game has its roots in ancient warfare. Omar Khayyam, used polo as a metaphor for God’s dominion over life, wrote: “In the cosmic game of polo you are the ball. The mallet’s left and right becomes your call. He who causes your movements, your rise and fall. He is the one, the only one, who knows it all.” The images in this series provide form to these poetic words, showing movement and providing a backdrop of the ball in play in a range of electrifying colours.

FINISH: DIASEC mounting –
Diasec is a method of preservation of photographic images. The mounting process uses no glue instead it utilises a special liquid chemical to create adhesion between the three components in the composite. The face of the image adheres chemically to the back of a transparent Plexiglas and the image back to a rigid aluminum sheet. The process ensures the absence of dust particles or air bubbles with no traces of glue. The front face of the plexiglas filters ultraviolet light and avoids discoloration of the image. The final artwork is a guaranteed Museum quality finish with image longevity of over 70 years.
