The backyard

Significance of the artwork:

By looking at this artwork you will remember the importance of finding a life balance, of calming down, of being with our loved ones and of giving others what they need.

Description:

The image shows a kangaroo relaxing in the backyard of a European old palace. A backyard is a special place where families and kids relax and play games. In my country, most of the people I know live in flats. Backyards allow a style of life healthier for kids and more relaxing for parents. They also permit to have a great social life, by inviting friends to spend time together, to have a BBQ or other plans. The outcome of this is less stress and more happiness, features that may well describe the average Australian.

Editions 

Media selection (paper finish)

Satin – artist’s recommendation (Baryta & Platine)

For this artwork, the artist prefers a satin finish paper: Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310 gsm (Palace Edition) and Baryta Photographique 310 gsm (rest of editions), which provide a photo-realistic appearance, with deeper blacks and higher contrast than a matte paper

Matte – optionally (Edition Etching)

A matte finish paper will provide a more pictorial look to this artwork, and it may work perfectly well also with “The backyard”, enhancing the relaxing atmosphere shown by the artwork. Just take into account that a matte paper does not have the same ability to reproduce details in dark areas.

If you are looking for a softer and more poetical look, or you are not very fan of satin papers, then go for this option. We will use Canson Infinity Edition Etching Rag 310 gsm, a slightly textured matte paper
