WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ART
Here’s a unique opportunity for you! Now you can decorate you home or office with PHOTOGRAPHIC ART! And you don’t need to spend a small fortune!
Hi, my name is Richard Farrington. Thank you for visiting my website. I’m a veteran landscape photographer and digital artist. Here you will find a unique style of photographic art. The images you see here are either pure photographs or photographs which have been digitally altered, shaped, and molded, thereby morphing them into distinctive artistic compositions. I’m not shy about pushing the envelope into the realm of wild and funky. I love to splash bright colours on the canvas, especially when it comes to my hot classic cars.
I specialize in CANVAS GALLERY WRAPS. In recent years, this has become one of the most popular art forms worldwide. My emphasis is always on quality. From beginning to end, the creation of each piece takes place locally, either by me personally or under my watchful eye. Each fine art image is printed in high resolution and brought to life with the rich texture and depth of a stretched giclée canvas. The stretcher bars are made from the best grades of North American basswood, known for its stability, low resin, and lignin content. The wood is kiln dried to a moisture content below 8% which ensures no warp or shrinkage. Made with quality pigment inks, high-grade canvas and wood, each gallery wrap is guaranteed to be of archival quality. With proper care it will last 100 years!
If you’re looking to decorate your home or office with quality fine art, depicting images of the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island and beyond, at a reasonable cost, then you’ve come to the right place!
I live in a most charming and picturesque place known as the Comox Valley, British Columbia, from where most of my images originate. My studio is in Courtenay, BC, where my unique brand of of fine art is on display.
