Hello Miranda Gatewood, I am Andrew Hepburn, a 73 year old emerging abstract nature photographer
(I work at a glacial pace.) who lives in Danville, VT. I saw and love your work at Wren last fall – and would like to know the dimensions of your “standard size” black mat pieces (2″ width to the frame -or more?…and what size print? I’m in the throes of wanting to go big- Rothko -canvas with no frame to small prints in frames..and in between. I will gladly show you a few samples of my “stone water abstracts” if you like. Thanks for any info you may have time to give. Also love your “Myth of a Happy Life”! Quietly potent! ciao, Andrew
Hello again…I am not sure I am getting thru to you – hate facebook and twitter – but as a throwback to the 19th century I do struggle with email. Hoping this reaches you. Andrew
Thank you, Andrew. I appreciate that you saw the WREN show and that you loved my work. I received a grant to produce a prior show so I used the frames again. I have my prints made by a fine art lab. Because these are digital photographic images, full frame and uncropped for vista-like landscapes, the digital image ratio of 2:3 requires that I choose print sizes that correspond. That’s why I have three sizes, all long rectangles rather than the squarer proportions of 11×14. The canvas pieces without frames were 20×30″. The larger framed pieces were 12×18″ + 2″ matting all around = 16×22″ frame size. The smaller prints were 8×12″ + 2″ matting all around = 12×16″ frame size. “Myth of a Happy Life” which was in the Art of Photography Show 2013 at the Art Institute of San Diego required museum-quality printing and framing so I had it made by a lab in Los Angeles serving museums and high end galleries. There is nothing like seeing your work as a print. Everything becomes obvious. It raises the bar with each new body of work. WREN is outstanding and close enough to Vermont to visit. Please support them. They do more for artists than anyone. I wish you well. Thank you again for your comments.
Thank you for the specific info on print and frame sizes. Would you be willing to tell me the name of your fine art lab – particularly the lab that does the canvas prints with the precise black border?
My wife, Paula, and I are both members of Wren -have been for awhile. She is a professional water color artist and had a solo show there about a year ago – so we know Wren well. Are you showing any of your work in New England this Spring or summer? Thanks again!
