Trees in Sky B

By Jenny Okun


About the Art

My abstract artworks are created from photographs transformed into new idealised spaces. Rather than produce literal representations of landscapes I distilled the essential qualities of form, texture, color and detail into a new rendition based on my feelings and memory. Using Photoshop I combined up to six images overlapped and superimposed for each finished artwork. Often the photographs are orchestrated into complex interconnecting themes and variations and sometimes only on closer examination can you work out where one image stops and another starts. I like the idea that the space appears cinematic because of multiple viewpoints. Compositionally I am interested in having one’s eye travel around the photograph, never settling.

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.
