Signarture Supports National Bird Week

Pink Cockatoo Fine Art Print on Perspex with 24 Carat Gold Mounts

This coming week, 22 - 28 October 2018, is National Bird Week. Throughout Australia, you can get involved in our largest 'citizen science' project, and help our feathered friends by participating in the Backyard Bird Count.

Our native birds are a source of great inspiration at Signarture, where Kookaburras, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and Lorikeets regularly come and go from the giant tree outside the studio.

Purchase any artwork from our Aviary collection during Bird Week and we'll donate 5% of the purchase price to Birdlife Australia in your name.

Above is the Pink Cockatoo, also known as Leadbetter's or Major Mitchell's cockatoo. Cacatua leadbeateri to the ornithologists.

This fine art print on perspex above was mounted with satin gold hardware - a special order option where the mounts are plated with 24 carat gold. We love how they offset the stunning soft white and blush pink plumage of this this beautiful and elegant Australian native.

Below is the Black Cockatoo, Calyptorhyncus Banksii, also known as the Banksian or Bank's cockatoo. Not Banksy's. Whilst Banksy has some fine birds amongst his work, as far as we know, he has yet to depict our Australian birds.

Signarture Black Cockatoo Fine Art Print

Photographed in an outdoor setting in strong sunlight, the transparent perspex medium brings this pair to life, giving them stunning depth of colour and by casting their natural shadows.

Of course if you would like to support the birds but aren't ready to purchase an artwork, you can make a donation directly via this link. 

Happy twitching!

Practical Considerations for Artwork Installation

So, you’ve fallen in love with one of our artworks, you've already measured up for the perfect spot, and you’re getting ready to commit to it. What are some of the practical considerations?

Weight

Highly robust yet lightweight, the weight of our stretched canvases is never a concern. But if you're less familiar with perspex, also known as acrylic glass, like many before you be wondering whether your walls will bear their weight.

One of the benefits of the medium is that it is half the weight of glass of the same dimensions. The number of fixtures that we provide to anchor each panel, and their combined load bearing capacity, ensures that you won’t even need to find the studs in a plasterboard wall.

Lighting

Once you’ve made the commitment, it's a good idea to give some thought to the lighting ahead of your artwork's arrival, though this can also be optimised post-installation.

  • Source

We would always recommend that your use modern LED light sources wherever possible as they do not give off any UV light or heat that over time could potentially damage your artwork. You could also consider placing UV filters over existing halogen lamps.

Even though our artworks are created with UV cured inks, choosing LED is always a good idea.

  • Direction

Whilst wall-mounted spot lights can be a good way to illuminate smaller works in more traditional settings, ceiling-mounted spotlights are the best way to draw attention and illuminate a specific artwork, and large artworks may require two spots. They allow for the light to be adjusted and the beam to illuminate the entire artwork. Place the light so it hits the centre of the artwork at around a 30-degree angle. Having spotlights on a track system comes will make them easier to move and adjust. Ceiling mounted down-lights that have a gimbal allowing directional adjustment can also work well, and are certainly less intrusive, whilst wall washers give a very contemporary feeling and suits contemporary art.

Our perspex artworks are designed so that light can interact with the transparency of the medium to create a stunning 3D effect, and will benefit greatly from being well lit.

Professional Installation

Signarture Installation

All our artworks are supplied ready to hand, and come with instructions, but we're also delighted to offer professional artwork installation through our alliance with leading installers in Australian capital cities.

If you would like to take advantage of this service, once you’ve placed your order, or by way of the comments box for online orders, let us know your requirements and we will place you in contact with the relevant installer who can provide a quote and arrange this for a day to suit.

To accurately quote for your job, in addition to knowing the size of the artwork / number of panels and the address for installation, they will want to know the parameters of the space where it will be installed, such as whether it is to be mounted at inside or outside, at height, or in an area with restricted access.

Updating Interiors with Ultra Violet Artworks

signarture lhotse artwork pairs pantone colour of the year ultra violet with bright orange

Pantone, the global colour authority, have just announced their 'Colour of the Year' for 2018: Ultra Violet 18-3838. Symbolic of the prevalent global culture, the colour of the year is an expression of the collective mood and attitude.

We are living in times that require inventiveness and imagination and, according to the Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, ultra violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

The colour is certainly provocative, and dominant. In an interior, it can easily overpower other elements and as such ultra violet requires careful coordination. It is perhaps best used as an accent colour, introduced through decorative elements such as artworks, so as not to overwhelm.

We took inspiration from nature, pairing the an ultra-violet hue with complementary deep oranges and citrus greens when creating new colourways for our popular 'Lhotse' design.

Fittingly, lhotse is a design from our Aura collection, which features organic forms in meditative arrangement. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world, and the use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.

As Pantone state, as a color that can take you in so many directions, Ultra Violet makes a statement in any space, whether it’s one of tradition and elegance or contemporary boldness.
