Intermedia Art Process
Methodology of Acrylic Macros
Cameron uses macro-photography of his densely layered acrylic paintings to reveal a incredible amount of depth and detail. This intermedia art process draws the viewers attention to images previously unseen by the naked eye. By infusing these images directly into alluminum plates or metallic photo paper, he breathes new life to a pictorial symphony.
Essentially, these are Limited Edition Macro-Photographs of his original acrylic paintings.
Weaving multi-exposure shots taken on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and sometimes an iPhone, details previously unseen by the naked eye are brought to life in HDR fashion.
These extreme close-up photos are then fine-tuned for maximum brilliance and detail on a variety of digital tools, including Photoshop, Enlight, and iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil.
Afterwards, aluminum plates go through a sublimation process that infuses high-pigment dye (similar to giclée) directly into the shiny metal. Depending on the image, he also prints on metallic photo paper.
The benefits of the printed photographs are unique because of rich detail, unbelievable luminescence, and holographic effect.
Finally, the photos are either mounted with a protective non-glossy acrylic surface, resined or sprayed with an archival UV-protective varnish for added depth and visual effect.
2017 and Beyond
This emerging artist is now starting to experiment with 3D glasses with UV-reactant paint, so that some pieces will glow in the dark and seem to pop right out of the canvas!
Stay tuned for more.
