Reproduction

Reproduction

A reproduction is a copy or replica of an original piece of artwork, created through various methods like printing, casting, or digital copying.

Reproductions allow more people to own and appreciate a piece of art that may be too rare or expensive in its original form. However, reproductions usually do not hold as much value as the original artwork. They are often used for educational purposes, in public displays, or as decorative pieces.

The Action of Three Primary Colours (Hand-finished)

Two years in the making, The Action of Three Primary Colours (Hand-finished) sees Jia Aili explore emotional expression through visual juxtaposition.The edition echoes the textural surfaces of the artist’s epic oil paintings with a series of silkscreen overprints and a layer of satin varnish. Drama is created through masterful use of colour, pulling inspiration from the chiaroscuro techniques of Old Masters. Dark greys, blues and blacks contrast bright white brushstrokes, which divide the composition into a series of dynamic geometric forms.15 prints have been intricately hand-finished by the artist in marker pen and acrylic paint. Paying particular attention to line and movement, no two are the same.“Painting is not a reproduction of the objective world, but meticulous care of the spirit.”
