Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Robert Pereira Hind’s mixed media series ‘Out of Eden’ is minimal and striking. These works are perfect in any setting being luxurious and beautifully decorative by printing photographic ink pigment onto gilded backgrounds on wood. Once the print is on each piece is coated in shellac and then glazed.

An important element of the work is that each piece, over the many years will slowly oxidise and mature in appearance. While the pictures sit on your wall, the golden background will eventually take on a light and very beautiful tarnish and eventually become atmospheric and characterful looking like nature against a moody sky. Each piece will bring colour and light to any environment, ambient light reflects from the works to exude a warm look and feel.

‘I am both responding to the beauty of nature and questioning the nature of beauty. As someone who does not adhere to any kind of religious practice but regularly feels a sense of awe within the natural landscape, it seems fitting to transform natures trees and flowers into secular icons’.

Robert Pereira Hind lives between Edinburgh & London, and is always on the lookout for trees and wild flowers that are both visually striking and relatively isolated. I’ll wait for a day with light cloud and head out with my camera. When I get back at my computer I remove all trace of context. I then experiment with various arrangements and layouts to montage several trees or flowers into one picture, or sometimes leave the tree isolated.

Artist Profile

Born: 1965

Hometown: London

Based in: Edinburgh

Robert Pereira Hind's mixed media series ‘Out of Eden’ is minimal and striking. These unique artworks are perfect in any setting being luxurious and beautifully decorative. They’re made by using acrylic paint & organic photographic pigment layered onto gilded wooden backgrounds coated with shellac and art glazes.

An important element of the work is that each piece, over the years will slowly oxidise and mature in appearance. While the pictures sit on your wall, the golden background will eventually take on a light and very beautiful tarnish and over a period of 10-20 years become atmospheric and characterful, like nature against a moody sky. Each piece will bring colour and light to any environment as ambient light reflects from the works to exude a warm look and feel.

The ‘Out of Eden’ series evokes the gold leaf technique reminiscent of Gustave Klimt (Woman in Gold), and the 18th Century botanic flower renditions not painted but via a photographic technique cross pollinating art interpretations.

Robert Pereira Hind currently lives between Edinburgh & London, and is always on the lookout for trees and wild flowers that are both visually striking and isolated. ‘I’ll wait for a day with light cloud and head out with my camera. On returning to my studio I remove all trace of context and montage several images together in the one artwork to create an individual & unique artwork.
