Robert Pereira Hind - Prunus Serrulata in Excelsis
Prunus Serrulata in Excelsis is a photographic mixed media on Gold Leaf Schlag Metal
60 x 40 x 3cm
Robert’s mixed media series ‘Out of Eden’ is minimal and striking. These works are crafted by printing photographic ink pigment onto gilded backgrounds on wood. Once the print is on each piece is coated in shellac and then glazed.
An important element of the work is that each piece, over many years will slowly oxidise and mature in appearance. While the pictures sit on your wall, the golden background will eventually take on a light and very beautiful tarnish. Over time they will become more atmospheric and characterful looking like nature against a moody sky. Each piece will bring colour and light to any environment. Ambient light reflects from the work to exude a warm look and feel.
