Project Brief : Richard loves Typography and Graphics and Collecting Numbers, often at Car Events, another love. They come to together here in this Fun Collection of Images.
Product Description : These pieces of art are Silver C-Prints hand printed in the artists own Cambridge based Darkrooms. The print is dry-mounted to aluminium and they are presented in museum quality archival window mounts. We have sourced the best materials to produce these and because we do all of this in house we are able to pass on a great price to you the client meaning you have a fantastic fine art piece without breaking the bank. Each Piece has an overall edition of 150 across different sizes so if you don't see the right size or price for you get in touch as it's likely that we can work to your specifications.
Framing Description : Our Frames are hand-made in the UK by Ware Frames. We offer box frames which have depth to suit the size of the picture, the piece set back from the glass. Our black frames are made from Oak and our White Frames are made from Beech. If you would like your piece framed in another way we are happy to refer you to Ware frames or if you would like a 'frameless' piece, get in touch to enquire about our special edition under Liquid Gloss Resin.
Sizes may vary slightly from image to image as we make each composition from the negative individually, either showing Richard's signature ragged edge (white border) as he prints full frame or showing the film rebate (black border) often showing the film make. Where the image size varies we adjust the window mount in order to maintain a frame size so like for like sizes can hang together.
Richard makes the c-type prints from negative in his own analogue colour darkroom in Cambridge. His paper of choice is Kodak Professional Endura Premier Gloss. When Richard has chosen to evolve the artwork, we work with Streamline Colour Lab. In our studio the print is dry-mounted to dibond which ensures a very flat image surface in both the short and long term. The prints are matted (window mounted) using a museum quality 100% cotton rag board especially manufactured to be compatible with the C-type archival Kodak photographic paper Richard uses. Richard does all mounting himself, using his precision engineering background to create the finished artwork. Eleanor fits the artworks to the frames. Traditionally photographic prints are signed and numbered on the back, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. They can be signed on the front of the mount by request. If you would like us to make a larger artwork that is possible, the sizes listed are the largest we can make in our darkroom but we can go larger with our printing partners so please get in touch to discuss it.
Our frames are hand-made in the UK by Menor Photographic Fine Art Printing & Framing Specialists in Hertfordshire. We offer a choice of black or white wooden box frames which have depth to suit the size of the picture, the artwork set back from the glass. Our black frames are made from matt ebony stained obeche, in which you can see the detail of the wood grain whereas our white frames are made from beech and the wood grain is not visible. The wood is sustainably forested for both variations of frame. Artglass AR 70™ is a premium anti-reflective glass used by the finest museums around the world. If you would like to present you artwork in another way, we offer the choice to buy an unframed print only and can advise you on other options or recommend reputable companies to carry out the work.
