DescriptionI found a very old score of Bellini's opera La Sonnambula. It was falling apart, pages missing and not worth restoring. The 150 year old paper however had a wonderful character. So I decided to paint a series of musicians on the old paper. This is a fine reproduction which retains the look of the original, especially if you choose the Somerset paper.
Paul Helm, Wimbledon UK Member Since August 2006 Artist Statement Painter, print maker, collector, picture framer, restorer, Photoshop artist.
I spent 25 years in the printing and publishing industry, most of them with the great Mondadori in Italy. I had the privilege of working with many of the best British and American publishers to produce beautiful “coffee table” art books. It was in Italy that I began to soak up the culture of art. Whilst my day job involved the latest and best printing technology, in my spare time I was fascinated by the low-tech printing processes of block printing, etching and silk-screen printing.
12 years ago I felt like a big change and so opened a picture framing workshop and small gallery on Wimbledon Broadway, modelled on some of the beautiful framing shops I had used in Italy. That was a fascinating and satisfying time, working with many artists to frame their work to the best effect. Having a small gallery in the shop also gave me an outlet for my own creative output. But there was one big problem: - time! I was too busy framing to have time for my own painting and printing. But now I have discovered Imagekind!
