ILE DU FRIOUL, MARSEILLE, 2021.
A determined and dominating plant above all.
Egle SIMKUTE, is a self-taught visual artist and photographer. Born in Lithuania in 1990, of a Lithuanian father and a Russian mother, she has lived in France since 1999.
Egle SIMKUTE explores a photography that finds its place between the contemporary landscape and the intimate documentary. At first glance, the settings are related to different natures of places: urban places, places of passage, industrialised places, places that communicate between interior and exterior. But above all, urban spaces are draped in concrete and subdued by a soft, pinkish light.
The aesthetics of the everyday feeds its photography. The triviality of everyday life and its ugliness are highlighted here, trash is the order of the day, poor materials, plastic, metal, sometimes filthy become lush, precious and sacred. Egle’s photography displays a poetry of memory and life in its most simple, fleeting and eternal form.
The intimate is at the heart of the subject, time seems to have stopped, Egle captures the simple but precious moments that constitute instants of joy, moments of life that can be seized and elusive. Moments that belong only to her. Nevertheless, she aims to keep a part of mystery and to reveal her world with a beautiful modesty.
The photograph is delivered in a tissue paper with white handling gloves and the certificate of authenticity. The artwork is shipped in a reinforced packaging that protects it. The combination of pigment inks and professional paper offers an exceptional result.
Its benefit : Pigment prints on art paper are the most durable with a life span of over 100 years.
A classic of museums and art galleries. The art paper is laminated on a rigid 2mm Dibond support. This very resistant material is composed of a resin interposed between two thin sheets of aluminum. The no-reflection appearance and the very aesthetic aspect of this support particularly emphasize the works on art paper.
Extra : Dibond is a rot-proof, stainless and fully recyclable material.
Sober, elegant and modern. The photograph is laminated on cartfix and presented with its passepartout in an aluminium frame. The glass protects the artwork while increasing the brilliance of the blacks and colors. The passepartout has a neutral pH to protect the photograph by avoiding any condensation phenomenon. This is only available for S, M, L and XL formats to ensure the best rendering.
Extra : Aluminum is a durable material, its maintenance does not require any detergent and its recycling can continue indefinitely without losing its qualities.
A modern and refined finish that gives a lot of style to the artwork and gives an original depth effect. The print is first laminated on a 2mm thick Dibond support and then framed in a custom-made solid wood frame. This technique provides the space between the print and the inner edge of the frame. It is the star finish in galleries and among interior designers.
Extra :Laminated on a sustainable material, then framed in a solid wood, the slightly recessed photograph is more protected.
