Artist/ Lloyd R.Knowles
Owning original artwork has a positive effect on the environments of people who own it, which inevitably makes life more enriching.
BUY WHAT YOU LOVE!
Collecting art either for investment or the personal value the original work has to you: Buy only what You Love and would be delighted to keep, even if you are initially looking for an investment.
Much of my work is large and time consuming and the price is currently based on $2/sq. in.. Special pieces such as installation works are based on the time in their creation.
When I place work with a gallery they mark up the price 30-50%. As long as it is at the gallery I will not sell it through the studio. I have to maintain a professional, trusting relationship with those that I work with.
That balding fellow in the photo is me at a solo exhibition. I do love to talk about what I do and help others understand the process. I especially like to hear other's commentary on my work - it's enlightening.
FINE ART REPRODUCTIONS
Not everyone can afford original art, therefore I provide in-house production of fine art prints, also known as giclees. These are priced based on the size of the print and the material it is printed on. See the "Our Projects Page.
a technology for fine art or photograph reproduction using a high-quality inkjet printer to make individual copies.
French: 'la giclée' meaning, 'that which is sprayed or squirted
LIMITED vs OPEN EDITIONS
All works are available in limited editions which are signed and authenticated by the artist. They are also available in "open" editions that are not signed and are quite reasonable.
I use a 44" wide printer. If a print is to be traditionally framed as a painting it will be printed on canvas with a 2-3" border allowing the framer to attach it to stretchers - therefore the maximum width would be 36-38". If the print is going to be framed flat, behind glass as those above, allow at least a 1" border. Order paper prints.
I ship all prints rolled or flat (depending on size) and you, the client can have it framed, or not, as you see fit.
Smaller print sizes are also available on commercial grade, satin finish paper for customers who wish to see how a print, or original will look in their own home: 5x7 print for $15 and 8x10 for $20. The price of the review print will be credited towards the purchase of a larger size print (16x20 or larger) or original
ART SHOULD BE A PART
"I try to give people a different way of looking at their surroundings. That’s art to me."
Art should bring joy and meaning into your life. Art should bring peace to your environment. Abstract art is not just something to look at or experience; it's something to live with - it's life enhancing!
