 Innovative Concepts

 
At Prolab we are always looking to assist visual artists and creatives in fulfilling their visions. We use inventive techniques and brilliant finishes to ensure your fine art photographic works have extra impact. Here's a look at a just a few of the many we are proud to have worked with so far this year.
 
 Frank Tomlinson

Frank Tomlinson’s stunning red photographs from this year’s Venice Biennale required all the colour saturation they could get. This meant printing pure photographic on Kodak Endura Metallic archival paper, a material with the benefit of an exceptionally large colour gamut and deep blacks. The colour stands out even more once face mounted behind optically clear 6mm acrylic adding an extra layer of shine to a create a beautifully vibrant surface. The triptych of images measure at 1.8 x 1.2 metres and are Frank’s dynamic interpretation of the ‘The Key in the Hand’ installation by Chiharu Shiota at the Japan Pavillion. A work that prompts consideration of how ‘by coming into contact with people’s warmth on a daily basis, the keys accumulate countless, multilayered memories that dwell within us.’

 Alannah Gunter

 
Alannah Gunter's captivating concentric images were given an extra boost when printed with our high-end SwissQ large format printer. By printing directly onto aluminium panel using six colours of UV-cured inks the images' subtle colours and tonal transitions were substantially enhanced. We utilised our custom cutting capabilities to give Alannah's circular artworks an attention-grabbing impact. All the works have a 90cm diameter and were finished with a baton hanging system ready for immediate display. The works will be on exhibition until 30th April as part of Alannah's series ‘The Proliferation of Nows’ at POP Gallery, 27 Logan Road, Woolloongabba.
 
 
 
 
 

 

 Rumble Creative

 

We used the SwissQ’s selective printing features to create a sophisticated finish for Rumble Creative & Media’s series of acrylic panels. The vision for these artworks was to give full visual clarity in the images and accompanying text when displayed suspended in an outdoor environment. We were able to achieve this by backing selected areas with blocks of white ink, an effect that gave the images rich saturation and bold contrast whilst still maintaining the clean, light feel of the clear acrylic. Ready for hanging with sturdy aluminium bolts in the panels’ four corners, we were pleased that the finished works for Rumble appear at first glance to be floating in mid-air.

Wayne Budge

 

Kodak Metallic pure photographic paper gave Wayne Budge’s luminant landscapes that extra kick of colour. Wayne creates technically inventive images that are true to life, stunningly surreal and everything in between. The intricate detail and brilliant colour of the depicted environments is apparent in full force behind optically clear 6mm acrylic. By representing such a broad range of colour, this combination of materials offers the competitive edge that is vital in ensuring your works reach the widest possible audience. Mounted on aluminium panel with baton hangers, Wayne’s ‘eScapes’ will be showcased at Logan Art gallery until 21st May.
