Light Painting Portraits on 35mm film.
This work is a creative exploration of portrait through the art of painting with light during an extended photographic exposure.This is an artistic interpretation inspired by the fact that the human body emits biophotons with a visibility 1,000 times lower than the sensitivity of our naked eye.
From Jealous Studio:
JEALOUS PRINT STUDIO RECENTLY COMPLETED SIX LARGE SCALE DIGITAL PRINT WORKS WITH SCREEN OVERLAYS IN COLLABORATION WITH CANADIAN ARTIST PATRICK ROCHON AND SMC DESIGN.
The brief was to create an art work that would glow when hit with a black light, giving the pieces by Patrick Rochon two elements to view and excite. After several months of discussion and proofing the pieces were put in to production. The pieces are large digital prints on Somerset Satin Enhanced 330 gsm paper that have then been mounted and sealed before a halftone image is screen printed using OBA (Optical Brightening Agent Ink) over the face of the work. The OBA appears clear to the eye allowing the image underneath to be viewed until the black light is shone across the surface and the new imagery comes to life in the dark.
The works is now installed into the bowling alley in a huge new cruise ship that was launched late 2016 in Hong Kong.
