Conrad New York’s Official “Artist in Residence,"
of Gryphon Fine Arts,
Launches New “Spring” Collection in Hotel’s Gallery
(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) mouth : digital + public relations is pleased to represent Belgian-born, Artist, Marie-Hélène of Gryphon Fine Arts, the official “Artist-in-Residence” for the Conrad New York hotel, as she launches her brand new collection, “Spring” in the hotel’s gallery which features rotating art exhibits by local and prominent artists. Marie-Hélène’s “Spirals” collection just completed an unprecedented 6-month exhibition with the luxury hotel.
Marie-Hélène’s “Spring” collection is focused on beauty of nature and the spring season. "Life springs out of the cold winter stones and dead wood. The art represents a range from spring water bubbles, butterflies, ladybirds, shrubbery, rose flowers and of course some spirals, found in nature." says Marie-Hélène.
The light and airy sculpture is produced by printing a photograph using certain types of dyes on a two-part paper (specifically a film on paper). Once the image is printed, the film with the image is separated from its supporting paper. It’s then is treated chemically and after a few minutes placed flat on hot water in a large tub. Then a 3D object is plunged onto the film into the water. After a minute the it becomes one with the 3D object. Marie-Hélène's Gryphon Fine Arts is pleased to present this new technique at the Conrad New York.
