Robert Pereira-Hind

Robert's mixed media series 'Out of Eden' is minimal and striking. These works are perfect in any setting being luxurious and beautifully decorative by printing photographic ink pigment onto gold leaf backgrounds on board. Once the print is on each piece is coated in shellac and then glazed.

An important element of the work is that each piece, over the many years will slowly oxidise and mature in appearance. While the pictures sit on your wall, the golden background will eventually take on a light and very beautiful tarnish and eventually become atmospheric and characterful looking like nature against a moody sky. Each piece will bring colour and light to any environment, ambient light reflects from the works to exude a warm look and feel.

'The 'Out of Eden' series evokes the gold leaf technique reminiscent of Gustave Klimt ('Woman in Gold'), and the 18th Century botanic flower renditions not painted but via a photographic technique cross-pollinating art interpretations'.

Robert lives in Edinburgh, and is always on the lookout for trees and wild flowers that are both visually striking and relatively isolated.
"I'll wait for a day with light cloud and head out with my camera around town. When I get back at my computer I remove all trace of context. I then experiment with various arrangements and layouts to montage several trees or flowers into one picture, or sometimes leave the tree isolated."
