We've redesigned Mind Over Matter and added extra pages to reflect the artwork that's been made for the Pink Floyd since the last version. This will hit the shops in January, and can be pre ordered on Amazon.
In the past few years, we have exhibited in London (The Proud Archivist, The RAC Club, The Olympus Gallery), Budliegh Salterton, Jersey, New York, San Francisco, Sydney, Tokyo, Norway, Mexico City, Monza, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Keep an eye out on our facebook page and/or in our newsletter for news of upcoming exhibitions.
This year, much work went into the Floyd's Mortal Remains exhibition which has now been cancelled in Italy....
THE PRINTS are made to exacting standards by experienced craftsmen. Brad Faine at Coriander made prints for a select group of artists that includes Damien Hirst and Sir Peter Blake - you can expect the highest standards. Our collaboration with them (now Coriander and Curwen) continues with two new Big Prints (60 inches square) and a lenticular this autumn. We've also had a long relationship with Stuart Nicholls at Rockarchive, who prints many of our giclee images, as well as images by many other visual artists and rock photographers. StormStudios prints are made at the studio, using similar machines to those used by Coriander and Curwen (but smaller...) using archival inks and papers.
The images are presented on the website in a stylised way as part of the design of the site. Above and below are examples of what the prints look like, and the proportions of the image to the printed page that you can expect. The proportions are given next to each image on it's individual page.
FINE ART PRINTS are made direct from original artwork as either silkscreen or giclee. All fine art prints are strictly limited in number (the edition size), and signed and numbered by the artist, namely Storm Thorgerson. All fine art prints are printed on archival paper with long lasting inks. So long as they are kept in interior conditions and not left in the garden or direct sunlight, they are said to last (remain colour true) for a hundred years at least.
SILKSCREENS are produced in a traditional manner using mezzotint screens. Colours are applied one upon another to build up the image. Special colours, glazes, embossing and debossing are applied later via matts. Silkscreen prints tend to have a cachet and a quality that is slightly more painterly or “art-like.”
GICLEE fine art prints are the modern digital equivalent of silkscreen and are printed on a very large and sophisticated Epson machine using long lasting inks and special long lasting archival papers. Colour balance is finely tuned via Photoshop before test prints are made. Giclees tend to have a more photographic quality, but equally must not be left in direct sunlight or in the garden – they are said to last (remain colourfast) around a hundred years.
