This is all about a 3D printer that will re-create almost like for like reproductions of master artworks.
If I could use this printer, I'm not crazy about reproducing an artwork...but can you imagine if it can be used to make 3D reproductions of us, like photos but 3D?
Given the technology’s lengthy printing time and limited ink library, the chances of spotting a RePaint-generated replica in a museum gift shop, on a gallery wall, or in a book anytime soon are low. Still, the technique holds great promise, and once it’s perfected, you may find ostensibly indiscernible versions of Vincent van Gogh's “Starry Night” and Leonardo da Vinci's “Mona Lisa” popping up all over the place.
Of course, I wouldn't mind an almost perfect copy of Van Gogh, too, lol.
Smiles with paint on my hands,
PS: The seahorse is a 2010 painting by me! It's encaustic paint on wood panel. Can you imagine if it was recreated with this printer? You can get the original - just please email me at angeline dot angelinemarie dot net if you'd really love it for your space. It's smaller than 8x10 inches.
