'Eve’ – A signed, limited edition laser etching and lenticular print by British contemporary artist Martin Richardson.
‘Eve’ represents Richardson’s departure from three-dimensional imaging into real-time animation; the first in a new process that combines laser etching with lenticular print in a composition that depicts the female figure in movement.
Richardson’s lenticulars are made using proprietary print software and a special lens material, otherwise known as a micro-lens. This combined with other optical components create a 3-D moving image called a lenticular. In the 1850's a marked step in solving the complicated problem of detailed representation of our three-dimensional world was made by photography; modern lenticular technology now advancing this science. Since Fox Talbot¹s early experiments in the eighteenth-century, photography has represented objects of the surrounding world in a far from perfect way. A vision we can take no further, a vision that, like language, has influenced society beyond all expectations. In our now digital age, lenticular technology offers artists the opportunity to construct mini three-dimensional representations of our physical world.
“I am able to create ever more realistic images- greater resolutions, greater animations using a much more fine art development approach. I can now capture five seconds of time into one feature- there is a real potential to tell a narrative. The technology in itself is an art and has potential to display new art and new ideas.” – Martin Richardson
