The Epson Stylus Photo R2880 has been used to produce this innovative, collaborative exhibition featuring works from a selection of artists who have previously designed postage stamps for the Royal Mail.
Leading imaging specialist, Epson, today announces its sponsorship of the Redman-Holmes staged Smart-Arts exhibition being held at La Galleria, Pall Mall, London from 10th December 2009.
Artist David Holmes designed one of the postage stamps for the 2012 Olympic Games issued by the Royal Mail recently. This inspired him and photographer Paul Redman to invite other artists who have also been commissioned to design postage stamps to join them to exhibit and sell their work at a collaborative exhibition.
The original works from the participating artists, which include illustrations, photographs and lino cuts, have been scanned or photographed to produce digital files. A limited edition of 30 A3 prints of each work have been produced using Epson’s Stylus Photo R2880 A3+ printer and UltraChrome K3 Vivid Magenta ink to ensure accurate colour reproduction and high quality, long lasting prints.
The award-winning Stylus Photo R2880 is able to deliver quality at high speed, thanks to its Epson Micro Piezo print head, which is coated with ink repelling Teflon to ensure unparalleled accuracy in dot placement. The UltraChrome K3 ink with Vivid Magenta enables superb grey balance and precise colour without any colour cast. It alsomaintains thesuperior features of the UltraChrome K3 ink such as colour accuracy of neutral and dark colours, short-term colour stability and smooth tonal gradation from shadow to light.
In addition to individual works from Paul Redman and David Holmes, the exhibition will include examples of their innovative Photo-Peinture collaboration. These works are a combination of Redman’s photography enhanced with acrylic, oil and water colour paints directly on to the print by Holmes.
Smart-Arts runs from Thursday 10th December until Tuesday 22nd December 2009 at La Galleria, Pall Mall, London SW1.
