Robert Pereira Hind’s mixed media series ‘Out of Eden’ is minimal and striking. These unique artworks are perfect in any setting being luxurious and beautifully decorative. They’re made by using acrylic paint & organic photographic pigment layered onto gilded wooden backgrounds coated with shellac and art glazes.
An important element of the work is that each piece, over the 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 over a period of 10-20 years become atmospheric and characterful, like nature against a moody sky. Each piece will bring colour and light to any environment as 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 Pereira Hind currently lives between Edinburgh & London, and is always on the lookout for trees and wild flowers that are both visually striking and isolated. ‘I’ll wait for a day with light cloud and head out with my camera. On returning to my studio I remove all trace of context and montage several images together in the one artwork to create an individual & unique artwork.
