About my art
My paintings are characterized by their extreme realism. Art critics classify my works as hyperrealistic.
My preferred support for painting is a panel. The durability of the painting is known to be significantly enhanced by this support. I adhere the finest Belgian linen to the panel in order to prevent the wood structure to appear in the painting. After having applied with 12 layers of traditional gesso grounding (and sanding each layer), I begin the underpainting by applying the initial layers with egg tempera. After a secret procedure, I resume painting with oil. For the underpainting and the overpainting to chemically interact properly, the secret treatment is essential.
There will only be one copy of each painting accessible in the entire world because each one is a unique work of art. Each painting will not be reproduced as a giclee or print.
Works fine art photography
My photographic work began with pigmented ink fine art prints on high quality Ilford or Hahnemuhle paper. Edwin has (re)discovered the ancient contact printing process. He began with the cyanotype technique and then discovered the palladiotype method. Because of his chemical expertise, he was able to quickly grasp this complex and difficult procedure. Each artwork is unique because to the high level of handwork involved in creating the negatives, activating the paper, lighting, and development. Even when created from the same negative, no two pieces of art are the identical. As a result, I can guarantee the uniqueness and authenticity of each artwork.
