The Benefits of ARTglass

MAIN EDITION

Printed on 300gsm fine art paper, each print is individually signed and numbered by Gary and supplied with a certificate of authenticity. 

The framed print is close framed in a 3cm wide whitewashed oak effect moulding with a 2.2cm moulding below. We offer the framed print glazed with Artscreen or a high quality reduced reflection glass called ARTglass. Supplied strung and ready to hang.

 
WHAT IS ARTSCREEN?

To overcome safety and weight issues with our larger limited editions we fit them with a speciality glazing product called Artscreen. It is a 2mm picture framing acrylic alternative to glass, which also offers excellent image clarity.

WHAT IS ARTGLASS?

Standard picture framing glass is called float glass. This glass is used by the majority of picture framers and is perfectly acceptable for use when framing most limited edition prints but it does cause reflection and impurities in the glass cause the framed image to appear duller than intended.

To overcome these compromises we offer all our limited editions with the option of been fitted with a speciality glass called ARTglass designed to reduce reflection and improve clarity.
Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film, reducing reflection whilst adding clarity.
The example shown here is an actual scan of a print framed with ARTglass in the left half of the frame and standard glass in the right half. This image has not been altered or enhanced in any way and clearly shows how ARTglass improves the clarity and vibrancy of the print. From certain viewing angles it appears that the glass is invisible.

 

ARTIST'S PROOF
  • Stretched Canvas
  • Framed Canvas

Limited to just 20 prints, the Artist's Proof is a stunning large scale stretched canvas print.

Printed on 400gsm fine art canvas, each print is individually signed 'AP' and numbered by Gary and supplied with a certificate of authenticity. The print is finished with a dark grey edge, fitted to a 3.4cm deep stretcher and strung and ready to hang.

The Artist's Proof is also available in a 7cm wide distressed bronze/warm silver moulding which is slipped with a painted off-white moulding.


WHAT IS AN ARTIST'S PROOF?

Traditionally an artist's proof was a print made by the artist during the print-making process in order to understand the progress of the printing plate the artist was working on. In this respect it was a 'work in progress' print.

With the development of modern printing techniques the term is now used to refer to a number of finished prints that are available in addition to the main limited edition, and are reproduced to the same exact high quality. The number of artist proofs should not exceed 10% of the size of the main limited edition. The edition size of 'How Time Flies' is 195 prints so there are just 20 artist proofs available. The artist proofs may be exactly the same as the main limited edition or, as is the case with Gary, the artist proofs may be a different format.

BIOGRAPHY

Gary Walton was born in Worcester in 1962. Ever since a very young age he was passionate about and fascinated with painting in any shape or form. His painting skills were first admired and noticed when he was given a paint-by-numbers set at the age of 8, and his parents soon began to realise there was a skill waiting to flourish. Although he demonstrated a talent for art from an early age, he moved through the school system and into a conventional job before taking up art, first as a semi professional, and then full time. After several years of working part time and selling his art to private collectors he gained a reputation as a talent to be applauded.

He says: “After being given an opportunity to explore and pursue my artistic skills I wanted to be different from all the other artists so started to develop my own unique personal style. It’s very whimsical, romantic and happy; quirky, two-dimensional with a slight intriguing air of fantasy combined with a twist of reality within.”
