NICE TO SEE YOU!

Its title is ‚Water Shamrocks‘. For our customers and collectors, we produce original photographic art manufactured to handmade perfection and according to the highest museum and gallery standards. And since buying art is always a matter of trust, all our works are sold exclusively and in worldwide strictly limited editions. A certificate of authenticity and a ‘Lifelong  Replacement Warranty’ accompanies each art work.

Jack Dykinga: ‚Water Shamrocks‘

This picture, and its twin ‚Acadia Lily Pads‘, connect the viewer to Claude Monet's "Water Lilies". Here, as there, the artist focusses on a section and not on the whole scenery. Here, as there, the sky is reflected on water, showing only indirectly its presence. And here, as there, the artist’s special treatment of colors loosens the composition. The colors are broken down in single nuances, therefore many changing tones are present in the same picture. Claude Monet represented his perception of light with a shimmering mosaic of colors. Jack Dykinga achieves the same effect with his conception of light and color.

“Water in the desert context is both life and a mirror to the sapphire sky. Artistically it is interesting for me to work with that wonderful interchange of the Earthly land forms and vegetation juxtaposed floating in surface tension of water. Large format film photography has provided me the tools and technique to capture simultaneously the reflections and suspension.” (Jack Dykinga, talking about his body of work ‘Life in the Mirror’, to which this picture belongs).

THE BODY OF WORK: LIFE IN THE MIRROR BY JACK DYKINGA

 Water in the desert context is both: life and a mirror to the sapphire sky. Here Jack Dykinga is artistically working with that wonderful interchange of earthly land forms and vegetation juxtaposed floating in surface tension of water. The reflection and suspension effects that result when earth and sky play together in water is a topic which fascinates Dykinga for a long.

He is dealing with the subject ‘Survival’ since decades, politically, aesthetically and as a humanist. This body of work represents a very special analysis on this topic and create works of opulent and shiny beauty. It is hard to believe that these pictures have been made in the desert, where life is so fragile.

THE ARTIST: JACK DYKINGA

Pulitzer Prize (1971 Feature Photography) winning photographer Jack Dykinga blends fine art photography with documentary photojournalism and is in both genres one of the most important photographers of the world. His work represents a beautiful manifestation of how to connect ones eyes to the heart. “I try to let my image speak for the land”, says Jack Dykinga meaning the wilderness, that in so many cases is threatened by what we call ‘development’.  For Dykinga ‘art’ has to cover both sides: politics and aesthetics.

PHOTOGRAPHY BASED ART. IN MUSEUM QUALITY.

MUSEUM QUALITY

The Art of Wild Gallery follows a simple concept: customers shall always receive the highest quality. From beginning to end. This starts with the artists and ends when receiving the Certificate of Authenticity for your piece of art. In between there lies a lot of work –but we take care of the rest.

CERTIFICATED RELIABILITY

Buying art is a matter of trust. And it also is an investment with a high potential of return. Hence, for every picture you buy, you will receive a Certificate of Authenticity (COA). We use the recognized Hahnemühle system, in which a non-removable hologram is placed on the back of the picture and comes with a unique number on a worldwide level. The twin-hologram with the same number you will find on the COA, so that identity is ensured between the artwork and the certificate.

The certificate bears the signature of the artist. With this signature he confirms that the picture has been made by him, has been printed according to his vision for that artwork, regarding colors, shades, tones, paper and print quality.

STRICTLY LIMITED EDITIONS – WORLDWIDE

PURE: PURE ART FOR TRUE COLLECTORS

A true FineArt-Print in museum quality is something very special. Why? Because it allows the faithful reproduction of a photographic artwork. Just as it has been conceived by the artist. For this reason we only print on highest quality artist papers.

The true FineArt-Print undoubtedly is the most beautiful form of photographic art and a prime choice for those who love and appreciate style exquisiteness. This is why all photographic artists, collectors, galleries and museums have their photographic artworks produced as FineArt-Print.

You receive your FineArt-Print in a stable cardboard tube, so you can decide how and when you want to frame it.

GLAMOUR: THE SHINY AND IMPRESSIVE PRESENTATION OF ART

The most modern presentation of a picture is our design GLAMOUR. A true FineArt-Print in museum quality lays the foundation here, the best technical finishing for us is standard.

This impressive design is frameless, without border and ready to hang. The picture appears to float over the wall and hence gets a special importance.

We print all GLAMOUR design pictures with modern, large-format pigment printers in museum quality. An aluminum profile support frame on the back ensures extra stability and is also used for easily hanging the picture.

It is not a coincidence that many of the best photographers in the world are currently producing some of their editions this manner.

GALLERY: THE EXQUISITE AND TIMELESS EXPRESSION OF ART

"A picture without a frame is like a soul without a body." This quote comes from exceptional artist Vincent van Gogh. Our exquisite design GALLERY with its handmade, classical and timeless frame is one of the best ways of embodying photographic art. Custom made and state-of-the-art fine carpentry in German craftmanship makes this frame really special. It stresses the value of your chosen artwork.

The fine art print on artist paper has a 7cm white border, is laminated on 2-3mm AluDibond® and covered with 3mm acrylic glass. Special, invisible spacer strips keep the print off the glass. This adds extra protection to your precious artwork.

The frame of GALLERY design comes with 22mm optical width.

A ‘support frame’ on the back ensures extra stability, and is also used for hanging the picture. The frame has been built ‘dust-free’, meaning it is fully sealed, no dust can enter.

Choose from four colors: white, black, maple wood or oak wood.

MUSEUM: THE SECURE EFFECT OF SIMPLE ELEGANCE

For the first time this frame design was displayed at world famous New York's Guggenheim Museum. It there got its name: “shadow-gap frame”. Our MUSEUM design makes the perfect setting for high-quality photographic art. With its elegant yet simple appearance it fits to almost any kind of ambiance.

Its name arises from the gap between the picture and the frame. In a shadow gap frame, the picture is displayed in its entirety. The framing as such gives it an airy and easy feel. This, because a shadow gap frame does not constrain the artwork in any way. The gap between the frame and the edge of the picture creates a kind of shadow. Hence the artwork seems to float in its frame.

The picture is not covered by glass. So, you can enjoy it without any reflections. MUSEUM design is appropriate for any ambience where the picture can be displayed with no disturbances. 

Our fine art print studio has already manufactured thousands upon thousands of such framings for international galleries and museums.

A ‘support frame’ on the back ensures extra stability. On its back it has picture-hangers as well as distance pieces. A perfect hanging is ensured.

Choose from four colours: white, black, maple wood or oak wood.
