Spotlight :: Alternative Substrates

Bamboo

After you’ve found the perfect image, match it to the perfect substrate. Besides our standard paper, cotton rag and canvas substrates, we offer three alternative substrates: acrylic, bamboo and metal.

Acrylic: Our transparent acrylic substrate gives every image a fresh, modern, contemporary appearance. Your clients will love the clean, polished edges, and how their chosen artwork will literally “stand out” on the walls.

Metal: Artwork printed on metal seem to compel the viewer to take a deeper look. It’s astounding how metal can give images a new, vibrant dimension – especially abstracts and painted landscapes. A layer of quality brushed aluminum is bonded to a non-warping substrate, and the image can either be printed directly onto the metal or first printed on a white backing.

Wood: Composed of sustainably grown and harvested bamboo, our wood substrate is naturally moisture- and mold-resistant. The natural blond surface of wood both “warms” the look of every image, while it unexpectedly showcases their colors in new and inviting ways.

Featured Artist :: Iris Lehnhardt

A native of Germany, Iris Lehnhardt lives and works as a freelance painter with in-depth artistic studies at the Wiesbadener Freie Kunstschule and at the Academy of Contemporary Art on Lake Constance, among others.

Her images move in the field of tension between chromatic image surfaces, gestural painting and graphic elements. Silent color accents and shades are in dialogue with sensitive multiple layers and a variety of structures. In an open work process she explores the possibilities of assembling different materials and their dissolution.

SPOTLIGHT :: Animal Life

D997D - Davies Babies - Banyon Deer

Animals that act like humans or animals that act like animals…which one should we choose? DD McInnes brings us a fox who writes thoughtful compositions with Michael Drayton Writing Poly-Olbion. Or how about animals in a surreal world? Davies Babies offers the geometrical and astronomical Banyon Deer (see image above). Or how about animals doing what animals do?

Featured Artist :: Verne Varona

V681D - Varona, Verne - Solo Swim

Verne Varona held his first camera at 9-years old and never lost his passion for capturing exceptional images that provoke, inspire and illustrate a profound sensitivity to the visual world around him.

With basic formal instruction in photography, Verne’s real school of photography has come from the personal experience of over 25 years in still film and 12 years with digital.

He made the digital jump in 2006 and never looked back. Working with commercial, journalistic, fine art, book cover and portrait mediums throughout the world, Verne has developed a creative body of images that he calls “Aqua-Impressionism” — colorful images of unique water reflections from nature, architecture and people that evoke a timeless sense of the ethereal.

Umbrella Perspective is a reminder to us all to take a break and relax under a colorful umbrella while Boat Conference – Amalfi Coast draws the viewer into the deep jeweled waters of the Italian coastline.

Spotlight :: Water

Leonardo da Vinci said that water is the driving force of all nature. When we browse our collection of art the images of water in so many forms stand out. Water is life and images of water in one’s home or office calms us down and takes us away for a brief moment. Meeting Point from The Incado Collection reveals the power of nature as water crashes against cliffs. And from the opposite end of the spectrum we have The Pier from Vladimir Kostka where the sea is silent and calm. Sarah Parson’s take on water is abstracted and ethereal in Water Garden – where the translucent quality of water uncovers subtle hints of life.

Featured Artist: Karen Hale

H1271D - Hale, Karen - Ombre Blue

“Using the basic art elements of color, design and texture I create a vibrant and opulent canvas which both pleases and stimulates the art lover.  The absence of recognizable objective forms leads you on your own journey of discovery in each of my abstract paintings.” Karen Hale’s original contemporary artwork has been called dynamic, bold, explosive and exciting but they also involve subtle nuances of color and meaning that takes the viewer into the painting where they can make new and unexpected insights.

Hale constructs her paintings with layers of thick and thin color that is washed or glazed over textured surfaces using brushes, trowels, and found objects.  She uses acrylic paints and mediums and may add a variety of paper, chalk pastels, graphite and metallic leafing.  The results are a delight of color and texture.

Karen lives on five acres in the foothills of California with her husband, Tom.  She is an avid gardener and her land is filled with paths, sculptures, and exuberant flower beds.  Her sense of color and design are evident even in her gardens that like her paintings feel free and spontaneous but exude design and beauty.

Segments infuses jeweled tones and multiple layers – sharing hints of magenta and citron. Using subtle geometric shapes, Karen turns At The Source into magic with softer tones of blues, greens and organic earthly tones.
