CONTRASTS are welcome in Hahnemühle´s art calendar contest

“I like the play of contrasts and use both complementary and chiaroscuro effects to create tension and bring vitality into my work. Regardless of technique and material, the precise expressive references  that I want to convey arise” says artist Cordula Kerlikowski. Her pictures in the invitation to this year’s painting competition for the Hahnemühle 2015 art calendar are intended to inspire other artists – both hobbyists and professionals. The competition is now open.

“It surprised many people recently to find that I’m actually quite new to printing my own work. As a commercial and editorial photographer, the vast majority of my images are delivered not in a heavy duty card tube, but via FTP, DropBox or a DVD. Very often, the first time I see my images ‘in action’ are in automotive publications, on trade stand exhibitions or on corporate websites. So when The Signature Store contacted me with the idea of a limited edition print, signed by Sir Stirling Moss, I knew that simply hitting ‘Control+P’ wasn’t going to cut it.
