HUDSON RIVER EXPLORERS - limited edition giclee prints. Prints available through Kenise Barnes Fine Art

Each print in this series is a compilation of multiple* paintings that were scanned, digitally altered, layered together and printed with digital additions as a singular gestalt image; similar in appearance to the laminated glass pieces fabricated of each image for the Tarrytown station. The number of original paintings used in the compilation of each print is described in individual print descriptions with print documentation. Each print is part of a limited edition, signed, numbered and published by the artist in 2012. Further specifications, image size, paper size & type, edition size, printer and ink are listed with individual print specifications upon request.

 

*Six of the prints in the aforementioned suite also have an edition of a variant form (noted by "II" in the title of the print) and all but one of these variants are from a singular painting rather than multiple paintings.

About the project:
The project, entitled – "Hudson River Explorers" is inspired by this great river‘s majesty and eloquence, and informed by its rich history of discovery, exploration, and travel. "Hudson River Explorers" features 11 windows: 6 in the South Overpass corridor, and 5 in the North Overpass corridor at the MNR Tarrytown Station.

The scenes are fantastic, magically real, yet still naturalistic. From east to west, with color and subject, the windows create the experience of one day – from dawn to dusk. Creatures move through the landscape both above and below the water. The plants and animals depicted in the various windows are largely native species, many threatened or endangered, who guide an array of exotic visitors through the watery realm.

The Tarrytown project is fabricated in laminated glass by Tom Patti Design. Installation completed in August, 2012.

December 2010 – I was awarded a commission from MTA Arts for Transit for the Metro-North Railroad Tarrytown Station on the Hudson line in Westchester County. The station was rehabilitated as part of the MTA Metro-North Railroad Capital Program with funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. A percentage of the construction budget for the station is allocated for the design and fabrication of permanent artwork.
