***NEW PAINTING****Momoko – peach tree – September 2017
Welcome and thank you for coming to see my new creation entitled “Momoko “meaning peach Child. The explanation for name is set out below. I was unaware that Geisha’s, when there training had finished are given a professional name. I Have come back to add to my collection entitled “ My Asian Affairs” as I am of mixed race black and Asian, I have delved into that heritage to explore , and always fascinated with faces and that faces of a different races. This is a little departure as I am using new techniques that I garnished when I was in Thailand a few years ago. I try to incorporate new techniques all the time and the inspiration can come from anywhere or just pop into my head at any time. I hope you like it and thanks for taking interest in my work. Please feel free to give comments or feedback as I am always like to hear from you. Many thanks …Edwin
When a girl becomes a maiko, an apprentice geisha, she takes a professional name (geimei (芸名) or, in older usage, geimyô, “artistic name”) to symbolize her new life. These names are flamboyant, describing the bearer’s beauty, youth, or alluring clothes and perfume; they’re vivid, comparing the bearer to flowers, jewels, and gold; and they’re aspirational, wishing the bearer a long life, many blessings, much wealth, and good fortune. They reflect not only the splendour of the flower and willow world, but the uncertainty of a life spent on the cutting edge of fashion and the raw edge of society
Title: Momoko Peach child (桃子) 1890’s
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.
