A limited edition digital print of Bachmair in Germany. This digital print comes from an original pencil drawing that the artist Robert Dunt made while he was staying in Bachmair.
Robert then scanned the pencil drawing into photoshop and coloured the picture there. So the final work is only produced physically once it is printed out. Part of the work is also made with photographs that the artist took while he was there.
In the work Robert focuses on contrasts, such as the flat colours in the curtains and wooden balcony, and the real photograph of the view, and uncoloured pure drawn sections of the print. The work focuses on the different ways we can depict our world.
This print, and the others in the series, called the Orchid Suite, were inspired by Picasso's Vollard Suite.
In Picasso's Vollard Suite, Picasso often sets up image between an artist, his model and the work he has produced. It is as if the work the artist has made is a reflection of the model he has copied. There is a poetic strand in these works about the real and the reflection, as the artist is often seen to be gazing at both the model and the work he has produced.
Robert's Orchid Suite prints looks to make similar poetic comments.
