Innovative 3D Frames™ bring new dimension to Signarture Fine Art Prints

Birds are a perennially popular, and currently in-vogue, motif for interior decoration. Through the transparency of the medium and the design of Signarture's new 3D Frames™, their Aviary collection of Australian and Exotic fine art bird prints on perspex is brought to life in fine feathered detail. 

Without visible fixings, the innovative design holds these prints on transparent perspex away from the wall, enabling the unique, full colour, 3D shadow-casting effect for which Signarture's frameless perspex artworks are well known.

The Tasmanian Oak frames in a natural oil finish lend Signarture's use of the modern perspex medium a contemporary, organic feel that suits a wide range of interior design styles.

Produced in limited edition, each Signarture 3D Framed fine art print is accompanied by a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity, and finished with Signarture's trademark engraved metal brand plate .

The Aviary collection of 3D Framed fine art prints is now available in a range of 4 sizes through Signarture's online gallery www.signarture.com.au

600 x 400                                             RRP $699
900 x 600                                             RRP $1,299

Digital Artworks Debut at 2015 Sydney Royal Arts Show

Arts & Crafts have been a popular feature of the Sydney Royal Easter Show since 1869. Almost 150 years later, it has grown to become the largest amateur Arts & Crafts exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere. The event attracts over 5,000 entries that reflect the changing tastes and fashions of Australian society and the Arts & Crafts Pavilion is often cited amongst the top 3 reasons for people to visit the Show.     

Sarah Leslie, artist and owner of online gallery Signarture, is delighted to be an inaugural exhibitor in the Digital Artwork category that has been introduced for 2015. 

"I'd been approached to participate in the 2014 show, but my artworks fell outside the strict guidelines for the traditional classifications of Painting, Printmaking and Photography, both in terms of process and medium", said Leslie. "I'm delighted that the Arts & Crafts Committee has modernised the categories for 2015 so that not only are digitally originated artworks permitted, but a variety of modern media, including Perspex, is accepted as well".

Within the Digital Artwork category there are two classes that recognise artworks that have been originated in digital format: Vector Art refers to artworks that have been created using Adobe Illustrator or other design software, while Raster Art encompasses artworks that have originated from a photograph but which have been digitally transformed through the use of Adobe Photoshop.

According to Elizabeth Hastings, Chair of the Arts & Crafts Committee, “It is vital that the Sydney Royal Arts & Crafts Show keeps pace with technological advances and exhibits 21st century trends in Art, Craft and Design. Currently, there is a groundswell of interest in Digital Art and a wealth of creative talent in the community, so we decided it was time to introduce these new classes at the 2015 Show.”

The 2015 Sydney Royal Arts & Crafts Show will be held during the Sydney Royal Easter Show from Thursday 26 March to Wednesday 8 April 2015. 

The Sydney Royal Arts Preview will take place on Tuesday 24th March from 6-9pm at the Sydney Showground, Olympic Park in Exhibition Hall 5 and provides the first opportunity to purchase award-winning artworks across a range of media.

Art Month Sydney 2015 provides Opportunity to Connect with Artists

Art Month Sydney is an annual festival that encourages engagement with contemporary art and artists. Over a hundred galleries in Sydney will once again throw open their doors during March, inviting you into their spaces to get to know the artists and hear their stories.

Based in Potts Point, a hub for artists since the 1950's, contemporary art studio Signarture have become known among a discerning design savvy public and interior design professionals for their uniquely transparent, perspex artworks.

The modern alternative to artist canvas and framed prints, signarture perspex artworks are created using crystal clear perspex (also known as plexiglas or acrylic glass) and mounted so that they appear to float off the wall

"Perspex is a beautiful, modern, transparent medium and and we utilize this to full effect. The colours have gorgeous depth and light is able to interact with the artwork, creating stunning shadow casting and three dimensional depth." says Sarah Leslie, Owner and Creative Director of Signarture. "Light passes through the colours projecting these in a similar manner as  with a stained glass window". 

To experience the unique properties of Signarture perspex fine art prints, make an appointment to visit their studio during Art Month Sydney 2015.

Art Month Sydney runs from Friday March 6th through Sunday March 29th 2015.

NEW 'Aviary' Collection combines Vintage Illustration with Modern Art

Signarture announce the release of their Aviary collection of limited edition fine art prints on perspex.

Australian native birds, first depicted on paper nearly two hundred years ago, are reinterpreted as quintessentially modern, perspex artworks. A pandemonium of parrots, a cacophony of cockatoos and a durante of toucans are brought to life, the transparent medium giving them superior depth of colour and enabling their natural shadow casting.

The Aviary collection responds to the trend for vintage, scientific-style illustrations in contemporary interior design, accompanied by a revival in faux specimen display and the popular use of glass cloches as decorative accents.

“In mid-nineteenth century Victorian society, a private aviary filled with exotic birds was the height of fashion, a luxury afforded by the aristocracy” says Signarture creative director, Sarah Leslie. “For those of more modest means, taxidermy and lithographic prints became the vogue”.

These stunning perspex artworks can be installed in both indoor and outdoor spaces and indeed previous Signarture collections such as ‘treescape’ have focussed on bringing the outside in and connecting us to the natural environment.

Aviary takes this another step further, bringing the birds out of the trees and placing them in the spotlight” says Sarah.

The ‘collection is available to order in limited edition from www.signarture.com

NEW 'Aura' Collection of Abstract Contemporary Artworks

Signarture announce the release of their aura collection of abstract contemporary artworks designed to complement the trend for lightness, soft curves and minimalist interiors of luxurious simplicity.

Taking inspiration from the Nepalese Himalaya, the artworks Kathmandu, Makalu and Lhotse feature organic forms reminiscent of smooth-worn river pebbles arranged in perfect balance. Lhotse utilises the transparency of the perspex medium to full effect, whilst the blurring of these in Makalu creates an aura of luminosity.

The on-trend palette contrasts pastel accents of lime, turquoise, aqua blue, mint, pink and coral with white and shades of grey.

Signarture artworks are created bespoke, to order in square, rectangular and panoramic format sas uniquely transparent, shadow casting perspex artworks (from $599) or affordable canvas prints (from $299).
