About the Art

The starting point for this project was the imagery of Rachel Ruysch. The images are that of plants and flora of the Botanical Gardens in Glasgow. It is shot from the outside looking into the Glasshouse as the plants press up against the glass. I liked the idea of the flora being framed as still life within the glass frames, protected from an alien environment and grown time after time in the perfect habitat. Distorted.

Artful photographic prints are produced to the highest standard, using Giclee printing on 300 gsm 100% cotton rag fine art paper. This method, accepted by the art world for fine art reproduction, produces a high quality, archival grade digital print. The archival quality of the pigment ink with 100% cotton rag minimises the chemical reaction leading to image fading.

Because Giclee is widely regarded as one of the very best photographic and fine art printing methods it has become extremely popular with artists and photographers displaying their images in art galleries, museums and exhibitions.

Artful is proud to offer a high quality framing service that perfectly compliments the artwork. Using conservation quality wood mouldings, our handmade frames are built for each individual print and arrive ready to hang. The archival quality mount is acid free and pH neutral, so you can be confident your print is well protected.

Artful’s framing service is not only competitively priced but of the highest quality. If you have any requests for further framing options, get in touch.

Artful uses UPS for its UK and international shipping since they’re quick, trustworthy and affordable.

As soon as your artwork is ready to be dispatched, we’ll notify you with the shipping details and tracking number. For UK delivery, shipping is ‘Next Working Day’ but for international, it will take a small while longer.

As you'd expect, all artworks are packed with the utmost care to ensure they reach you safely, but If there is any problem with how an item has arrived we will address the issue immediately.

About the Artist

Artists - Armando Ferrari

Armando Ferrari is an award winning photographer who learnt his craft at Edinburgh Napier University.

Armando’s stunning work captures something unexpected and contradictory. On the one hand, he makes ‘ugly’ urbanism into something beautiful, even sculptural. Industrial pollution, urban haze and a dust choked demolition become artistic inspiration, disconnected from their meaning as the viewer engages with form and colour.

But when the lense is turned on the natural world, something equally unexpected happens. Just as the ugly becomes beautiful, so the beautiful is sharpened into an edge. Flowers are pinned with needles; plants press against glass and autumnal trees feel chill and bare. With Armando’s work, things are rarely as they seem.

Armando has received numerous awards, including The Association of Photographers (AOP) awards in 2011 and 2012. His work was featured in the Creative Review Photo Annual, and “Best in book” in 2008.
