Technical Notes for the Archival Reproductions on Canvas
This reproduction was made using an Epson 7600 printer with archival UltraChrome inks on coated, water-resistant inkjet canvas from Fredrix. The reproduction was then overcoated with ClearShield satin liquid laminate (for physical protection and improved ultraviolet protection). I know of no accelerated life testing of this combination of ink, canvas and coating, but the same ink on some Epson papers is rated by Epson to last over 100 years before noticeable fading when displayed under glass in normal interior lighting (see www.epson.com for details). Nevertheless it would be wise not to expose this work to prolonged direct sunlight.
I have been working in oils since 1986. In 1994 I began to exhibit my work publicly and have had many one man and group shows in the East Bay and Mendocino County. Currently, my paintings and reproductions are displayed at the Edgewater Gallery in Fort Bragg and the Artists’ Cooperative of Mendocino.
My work is representational with a focus on the emotional effects of visual perception. I work directly from my subjects, without using photographs. My landscapes are painted en plein air. I am not trying to create the illusion of reality. I want to stretch the process of perception as reality does in those moments when we are stunned by what we see – moments when just seeing makes you ecstatic. I am interested in that flickering drama that underlies objective forms.
