Artist Statement: The wall art prints in the Color Photography Gallery are a series of my photographs representing various subjects. I have included a wide variety of photographic elements and subjects. The common thread is that I think the subjects in this collection represent some of my best photographic efforts. To take a color photograph and present it as an art print leaves very little margin for error in the technical presentation. The capture must be in sharp focus and composed well to present the subject in its best light. With all of those elements in place, there must still be a dynamic presentation of color. The contrasting and complimenting colors are as important as the technical presentation. If your color is not telling the story, then what is the point?
I think that the use color photography as art prints works in just about any interior design and decor. I look at the prominent color initially and then the subject matter. Framing and matting the art print also changes the look depending on the style and size of both.
I would also like to note that I am available for custom work in printing an art print for you. I have re-cropped prints to fit a specific size for clients and added wider white matting so a print can be immediately put into an existing frame with a matted look. An example of this would be some of the black and white photography art prints. I left some of those prints with the wide white matting look. My pricing is based on the ultimate size of the print and not the extra work to customize. I believe this is one of the advantages I have in my gallery since I do my own printing.
I invite you to share in my love of art and take some of these art prints home for your own Wall Gallery! Kirt Tisdale
