Cars are an interesting example of objects that retain a hold on us, perhaps because for they are imbued with psychological and semantic dimensions. In the film noir genre the car and the road are not necessarily the symbols of freedom they first appear to be. Likewise the vintage cars in this series seem to harbor a buried secret. In the stillness lies something waiting to be released. Getting close to this enigmatic, spectral quality is the reason I take pictures.
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.
