The backyard

Description:

The image shows a kangaroo relaxing in the backyard of an old European palace. A backyard is a special place where families and kids relax and play games. In my country, most of the people live in flats. Backyards allow a style of life healthier for kids and more relaxing for parents. They also permit 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.

 

Significance of the artwork:

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

Editions 

Media selection (paper finish)

Satin – artist’s recommendation (Baryta & Platine)

I prefer a satin finish paper for this artwork: Canson Infinity Platine Fibre Rag 310 gsm (Palace Edition) and Baryta Photographique 310 gsm (rest of editions). They 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. It may work perfectly well with “The backyard”, enhancing the relaxing atmosphere shown by the artwork. Just take into account that matte paper does not have the same ability to reproduce details in dark areas, although that should not be a problem.

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

Select Framing * 

– You can order your artwork unframed or framed. Framed artworks include the artist’s recommended mould, plus a glossy acrylic glass (PMMA), mounted on reinforced foam (neutral pH), the backboard and the hangers. The artwork will not be in contact with the glazing to preserve its longevity (by means of a spacer or a passe-partout). You can contact me to request a different mould. I mannually frame the artworks and I have access to a massive selection of moulds. Also, contact me if you want a matte acrylic glass; this is specially recommended for dark artworks; if so I will employ an Optium Museum Acrylic, which is a great product although pricey.
