Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) March 14, 2007
Santa Fe artist "Val Jean" has introduced a collection of contemporary paintings capturing the core of human existence, entitled "Dreams and Meditations."
This series of contemporary work being introduced here has been in secret development for a long time. For nearly twenty years the artist has been creating and accumulating these works in her personal collection while nurturing her own freedom of expression and solace.
The artist states; "Dreams and Meditations is a collection of contemporary art for a conscious world".
This body of work consists of many pieces, seven of which are being introduced now:
There are more to be released, but these seven paintings take the viewer from "Creation" ("Eternal Decision") through today's workplace ("Civilized"). The symbolic depth expressed in "Civilized" is further enhanced by its shaped canvas.
Through the masterful use of color, composition, and dimensional contrast this expressionistic series is steeped in symbolism.
The entire presentation of the Dreams and Meditations Collection is intended to be spiritually, emotionally and psychologically uplifting, and indeed that spirit is embodied in Val Jean's work.
Never shown in a gallery or publicly introduced prior to now, these paintings can be viewed on her new website at; http://www.DreamsAndMeditations.com. When visiting her website, one finds that she has graciously taken the time to pen some of the thought, color theory and compositional consideration that went into the realization of each painting.
About The Artist
Val Jean was born with an artist's soul and spirit, intuitively searching and seeking out the meaning of life with zeal and vigor since childhood. She has been a life long student of the arts, spirituality, psychology, sociology and humanity.
Until now, although well versed in multiple art media and genre, Val has been more comfortable in her established classical success. Her more traditional paintings and sculptures have been shown in many galleries and reside in numerous private collections. Her life size sculptures are truly amazing.
The artist's wish and hope is that when viewing this series; "You will enjoy and ponder, being enchanted with visual delight and intrigue of meaning, while realizing that you are not alone in your own journey down a sometimes not so easy path of life and living."
Fine Art Reproductions with a Personal Touch
Fine art collectors, commercial buyers and interior designers should be delighted to know that only the highest quality fine art reproductions are offered by this artist. Most of the original paintings are fairly large so they are being presented in several sizes appropriate for any wall space.
As one might imagine, the artist's exacting nature commands quality at every level. These fine art reproductions begin with advanced giclée on canvas printing techniques well regarded in the art world; offering brilliant color rendition, wide color gamut, precise tonal range and a long giclée reproduction life expectancy.
After inspection and approval by the artist, each piece is professionally stretched and mounted in a "gallery wrap" fashion on wooden stretcher bars with all hardware positioned on the back side, out of view.
In the gallery, every piece is then reviewed again and hand detailed to suit the artist's eye or custom request, rendering each truly unique. The edges are hand painted with a dark color matching the original. After drying, the painting is then sealed against dust and other pollutants.
Every painting is signed by the artist and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Upon arrival you will find every painting fitted with a plastic coated wire, ready to hang or frame depending on your preference.
Thoughts on Placement
We, at Mountain Eagle Marketing are very pleased Val has chosen us to introduce what we consider to be the most significant Contemporary Art Painting Collection made available to the public in some time. Upon viewing the originals, one is overcome by the quiet dominance they command in their wall space. They will become conversation pieces whether hung in residential or office settings. It's a rare privilege when anyone has the opportunity to bring something this significant out of the closet.
