Through the Trees Pentych

Linda K. Shinkle Rodney/Theodore M. Shinkle

We honed our vision at sunrise while wearing waders during the unusually wet spring on the banks of the Red Cedar River outside of Lansing, MI. Photograph derived from multiple images taken in RAW, processed and developed in our digital darkroom. Next we use hand and power tools with drawing, painting and etching techniques to stylize raw aluminum sheets prior to printing. Subsequently we use archival pigment to print onto the stylized metal, post coat to protect from environmental elements, adhere hand welded aluminum frame on verso, buff and polish. Our Pentych (5 pieces) Metalagram™ is an original one-of-a-kind. Our Patent pending designated process combines classic expertise and novel uses of technology from marine, automotive and aviation industries derived from our artistic vision, classic art training and extensive research and development. For our ArtPrize entry we developed a changing light and sound show to make viewing our art alive and an entire interactive experience.
