A limited edition digital print of Sienna in Italy. This digital print comes from an original pencil drawing that the artist Robert Dunt made while he was staying in Sienna.
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.
In the work Robert focuses on a few contrasts, such as the flat colour and shape of the room, and the vibrant patterned colour of the curtains and duvet. He also contrasts the wildly squiggled foliage with the carefully drawn buildings.
One of the key sections is the reflection of the scene in the window of the door which relates to how 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 looks to make similar poetic comments.
