In a normal year I would be spending this weekend at the Contemporary Art Fair at Sandown Park. In Covid times it is of course cancelled, and therefore on-line only.
As a substitute for this I will be making a little video of the images from my trip to Venice which were printed and made into acrylics specifically for the show. If you’re unsure what I mean about ‘acrylic’ let me explain.
Acrylic paint is used by artists as a medium for their painting. What I mean is that a photographic print is sandwiched between 2 layers of acrylic glass. This creates a marvellous luminescence which for some images is magical.
Some of my acrylics look amazing with a glossy finish, whereas others require a mat finish. The colourful houses on the island of Burano are particularly impressive in acrylic format.
Here are a few samples to share. All are now available on the website shop, so feel free to go and have a look.
Of course the mainland of Venice provides amazing photographic opportunities. Here are some for your delectation. All these are presented as acrylics.
I hope these glimpses of Venice may have cheered you up, in light of the upcoming further restrictions. Of course there’s also Christmas so go and have a look at my shop and see if there’s something you’d like, for yourself or for friends/family.
