It’s not just ink and paper. A fine art print is a creation that finds its own unique expression through several stages. This month I want to tell you more about my creative process.
First, there’s the fun part of taking the picture. Then starts the editing which may take quite some time. One needs time to ‘feel’ the image and let it tell you what it wants to become - and the message it wants to convey. Sometimes it's a quick process, but mostly I have to go back and forth for some weeks before the image finds its final look. In some cases, it has taken me a year or more to finalize an image. It’s a matter of patience - like making a good wine or a mature cheese.
Making a print look like an image on the screen, or the other way round is an art in itself. There are so many things that need to fall into place to make the magic happen – the kind of paper, ink, printer, settings... When it eventually does come together the satisfaction is so great. Giving ‘life’ to an image is always a fulfilling emotion.
Then comes the final stage - the taking-care-of part: putting it in the mount, framing it, and finally, the labelling and packaging before the courier collects it.
When it arrives at your home, where you hang it in your space, it’s not just ink and paper in a beautiful frame. It has become a creation that will carry and unfold its message for a long time to come.
Lastly, I would like to share with you my new collection called ‘Triptych’. This Collection was inspired by a request to create a group of exclusive artworks which could fit on an entire wall in a modern space.
