Bremnes Seashore reception

By spotogspindel | June 9, 2011

I´ve made a commissioned art piece for Bremnes Seashore´s reception area.

Today I could finally deliver the three pictures.

The first one is made of salmon skin that I´ve dyed and sewn.

The second one is a big photo-collage printed on see-through plastic, and incorporated between two pieces of plexi-glass.

The third one is made of oxidized copper and brass.

You can see details below.

First the salmon-skin.

This is the photo-collage. The man in the picture is the founder of the company as it is today. The text is from old letters and accounting books from the company. And the houses are where he first had the company. Lots of details from the company´s history, in other words. Not to forget, a salmon the background.

I like the effect where you can actually see through the picture and onto the wall behind it.

And finally the copper.

    job WELL done. really great combo of media!!
    for the second piece- how did you print on plastic? especially that large…did you have to have your artwork sent somewhere to be printed??

    Thank you so much!
    Yes, I always have my photo-collage pictures printed at a professional printers. So also this time. I think we ended up with him printing it on a huge see-through sticker, that he glued down on the plexi-glass. And then there is another piece of plexiglass covering it.

    This is a spectacular grouping Janne. I love how the three pieces are different widths but all work so well together. You just keep getting better and better!

    Thank you so much, I so appreciate your kind compliments!
    I am quite happy with how they turned out myself too.
    And it´s been so much fun working with new materials, like the salmon-skin and the plexi-glass.
    Although, while trying to get it up on the wall, the plexi-glass was not my favorite, phew, what a hassle to get it straight down to the millimeter! But now that it IS up, I´ve completely forgotten all about that! Ha, ha, ha… 😀

    Hey Janne, these turned out magnificently, and as someone said so well balanced. The different textures are really working so very well.

    I saw a show at our national gallery recently and one piece they had printed an image on film, then suspended it above the backing board and lit it so, that the image made shadows on the backing board, as well as having the image on the film (you could see the shadows through the transparent bits of the film) might be worth exploring later?

    I love how you have worked up these pieces.

    Congratulations ! You have worked hard and the proof is in the result
