Surface: the night of the Opening

November 20, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
The opening went great with 200+ in attendance through out the night, the Red Fox Tails rocked and I even managed to sell quite a few pieces to boot. Stoked all around.  Below are some photos from the night of the opening as well as some of the art.













ARTIST STATEMENT
These wood prints are the result of many years searching for a new medium to display photography, fine tuning along the way, figuring out new processes, and discovering what type of images work best. My design background plays a large role in how I frame the subject, to what time of day I shoot and how the images are processed. With these images, I look to combine a certain energy, a feeling with unique sense of light, framed at a decisive moment in time. At the heart, it all
comes back to the ocean and what it is that draws us to it. Subtle but bold. Simple yet deeply complex. Instantaneous but timeless.

These fine art prints are truly one-of-a-kind because the unique wood grain and color varies from print to print. Each piece of wood is hand selected, carefully matching the grain to the individual image, which is Forest Steward Council (FSC) certified and grown in sustainable forests. Close attention is paid to the type of wood species, the color, and most importantly the grain. Since no two pieces of wood are ever the same, no two prints will ever be the same. These prints represent a new art medium for printing and displaying photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated wood. Various types of woods (Ash, Birch, Maple, Luan etc...) and grains can be used to achieve truly unique pieces of art. These fine art images are offered in limited quantities.

Inspired by a lifetime of traveling, Myles was raised on saltwater and snow. He grew up across the U.S. in such places as the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina, and along the coastal beaches of Georgia, Texas, Florida, and California. You could say that he traveled a lot as a kid and developed a certain itch for exploration.
