ALTERNATIVE    PROCESSES

OROTONES/GOLDTONES

 

      Orotones  are black and white images on glass that were made famous by Edward Sheriff Curtis before 1925. Curtis made them on sensitized glass plates and coated the back with banana oil and bronzing solution. They are some of his most sought after images usually costing way into the thousands of dollars. 

          Curtis’s comment about “Cur-tones” as he called them was as follows…….. 

          “The ordinary print, however good, lacks depth and transparency, or more strictly

          speaking, translucency. We all know how beautiful are the stones and pebbles in the

      I make “Goldtone prints” by spreading liquid emulsion on glass and printing selected images in the sizes of 4x5”, 8x10” and 11x14”(See image PH-16). Each image is then backed with gold metal leafing and coated with a varnish to protect the image and the leafing along with being framed which is essential to protect the delicate glass image. There are many technical difficulties involved when making these prints but I agree with Curtis’s  assessment of these spectacular images. I am proud to now offer these prints to the public. 

      *All Goldtones prints are made on glass plates backed with gold metal leaf.

*All images in each size are released in an extremely limited edition. Each image is given an edition number (2/5,  etc)

      *All images are archivally processed similar to other Black and White prints.

*All images come framed with a certificate of authenticity describing the image   making process

*All images are signed by the artist on the back (verso) and on the COA.

Also my painting continues…..

I have found that without knowing it I have a theme that runs through most of my work. I’ve found that as I continue my search for pathways to higher consciousness one usually sees a window, door, or “pathway” to this other dimension in most of the painted images I produce.

I find it very strange that I did this without even being aware that this is what I was doing!

      Reproductions 

      Giclee is a French word that essentially means “to spray”.

      In the art world it represents a way to make quality reproduction

      of original  artwork. There are essentially two types of “Giclees”. Pigmented and ink.

      Pigmented Giclees are usually done on canvas and have higher  archival qualities.

      Ink based Giclees are done on art paper and have higher color  accuracy. 

      *All Giclee reproduction are limited edition (99)

RENT  /  LEASE  PROGRAMS

~

PATRON PROGRAM 

They work like this…. 

Rent/Lease allows the client to have original artwork in their home or office for a small monthly fee usually three months at a time.  If leased, all payments made for the first 12 months can be applied toward the purchase price.

Rent/Lease payments are usually 2% per month of the retail purchase price. First month there is a setup fee of $30.

Most monthly fees run less than $50/month. 

PATRON PROGRAM allows the client to participate in the career of the artist by making a $100 per month commitment towards a new piece of artwork. The patron continues to pay $100 per month until the purchase price is met.  Each patron is permitted and encouraged to visit Jerry’s studio (Galeria Del Valle Escondido) and if you see any work in progress that you would like to purchase (other than commissions). You can claim it as your future piece. 

The history of Patron /Client relationship goes back at least 800 years. Many artist were not able to produce work on a regular basis unless the enjoyed the patronage of others.  

And so it continues…..
