"Jane's Bath": The Presentation Of A Three Dimensional Drawing
December 14, 2016
Artist Robin A.S. Haynes, of Bath, Maine, created a three dimensional ink and poly-chrome drawing on heavy-weight archival paper.
The drawing is approximately 8"x 20" and the finished piece is a few inches larger. It depicts the City of Bath, Maine during the peak of the shipping era of the mid 1800's. Fogg Art Restoration was asked by a client in the Boston area to create a stunning presentation.
The drawing is attached to a specially engineered substrate to enhance the viewing of the three layers of the drawing when fully opened.
Nick built a 5" deep shadow box from custom milled molding. Teresa and Nick created a multi-layered pigment enriched wax finish. The shadowbox was lined with archival mat board to create a floating effect. This presentation is designed to hang on a wall or sit on a shelf.
Finally the piece was glazed with TruVue Museum Glass, so the glass does not interfere with viewing and will block 99% of Ultra-Violet rays.
