Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 31, 2010
Today Galerie Dada spokesperson Candice Christie announced that they would be introducing a new line in reproduction paintings by training their studio artist to accuately replicate the difficult drip paintings of Abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock. His technique of dripping paint onto a canvas created a number of famous art works that earned him critical acclaim and lead Time magazine to nickname him 'Jack the Dripper'.
One could be forgiven for thinking that it would be impossible to reproduce these complex drip paintings created by a free form, splatter technique. But trained artists at Galerie Dada, a studio that specializes in creating hand painted reproductions of famous modern oil paintings, have perfected their painting technique so that they can create accurate replicas that include Pollock's drip and impasto effects.
Candice Christie explained that, 'It's not done by using a tin can and a stick like Pollock did but by our artist painstakingly adding brushstrokes that mimic the drip effect. It takes about three to four weeks to do one painting. But it's worth it as our customers are usually thrilled by the results'.
'Pollock is one of our most requested artists but he's actually one of the most difficult to reproduce', added Ms Christie, 'but our reproduction Pollock's cost only a few hundred dollars for a large size canvas, so they also a lot cheaper than the originals which now sell for millions of dollars and are only available to museums and rich collectors'.
