Icons from the Shadows series – Sir John Hurt
Hi and thank you for looking, this is the fourth and last in my new series of paintings ( the other 2 are Bob Marley, Miles Davis & Marlon Brando) entitled “Icons from the shadows”. This is Sir John Hurt who is a personal favourite . He burst onto out TV screen in the guise of Quentin Crisp, the TV. series “The Naked Civil Servant”. He too went onto fame himself and a Sting titled song “ An Englishman in New York”. He really took off in Ridley Scott’s Immortal “Alien” film. From there he has high profile films over the years right up to untimely death year. I have used resin on the colour elements of the painting and left the black elements with holo graphic glitter to give a surprise element and to make the colour lift forward and a 3-D effect. IA little background to this genius of the golden screen: Sir John Hurt, who won Oscar nominations for the Elephant Man and captured the hearts of millions for his roles in Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, has died. The star, one of Britain’s most treasured actors, died aged 77 at his home in Norfolk after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, it was revealed today. His widow, Anwen Hurt, today said it will be ‘a strange world’ without the actor, whose death has prompted an outpouring of grief from the show business industry, with director Mel Brooks and J K Rowling among those paying tribute. Mrs Hurt added: ‘John was the most sublime of actors and the most gentlemanly of gentlemen with the greatest of hearts and the most generosity of spirit.
Artwork is captured from high resolution scans or photographs, and is then proofed and printed digitally using precise printers, archival-quality inks and acid-free art and photo papers. Giclée prints are quickly being recognized by the world’s leading galleries and museums as the finest reproductions available to date.
Our 12-colour Canon giclée printer produces incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclée prints render deep, saturated colors and have an exceptional quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The term giclée is meant to be applied only to archival digital prints made with fine art paper or canvas.
All my prints are printed on Klein Imaging Smooth Rag is the one paper I use. It is particularly suited to fine art and illustration printing, but also lends rich colour and fine details to fine art photography. The matt finish 300gsm paper is the ideal medium for colourful and vibrant images, with a smooth texture that doesn’t detract from the final image – it’s more than capable of carrying across the nuances of fine greys and subtle hints of colour too.
