WERKDRUCK No. 6
Tom Chambers was born and raised on a farm in the Amish country of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Tom completed a B.F.A. in 1985 from Ringling School of Art, Sarasota, Florida with an emphasis in graphic design and strong interest in photography. For many years Tom has worked as a graphic designer, including the design of packaging and magazines. Since 1998 Tom has devoted himself to photomontage for sharing the intriguing unspoken stories which reflect his view of the world and elicit feelings in the viewer.
Currently, Tom is represented by a number of galleries in the United States and Europe. His work has been shown nationally and internationally through solo and group exhibitions, as well as in a wide range of print and online publications. Recently, NPR's (National Public Radio) "All Things Considered" and "All Songs Considered" presented a collaborative Project Song based on the photograph "Black Dog's Retreat" (October 12, 2009). Tom has received recognition for his photography through a variety of awards, such as Worldwide Photography Gala Awards, First Place Digital Enhanced; Fotoweek DC, First Place Fine Arts (2009) and Second Place Fine Arts (2008); Critical Mass Top 50 (2008 and 2006); and Texas Photographic Society National Competition Third Place (TPS #18, 2009) and First Place (TPS #15, 2006). Tom has received fellowships from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Virginia Commission for the Arts.
Chief Editor and special advisor for VEVAIS-WERKDRUCK (photography) is the renowned photographer Jock Sturges.
Project editors include acclaimed poet and photo historian, Prof. John Wood, poet and photography critic, Steven Brown, and Alexander Scholz.
VEVAIS-WERKDRUCK books consist of twenty images which highlight astonishing work from both new and renowned painters, photographers, and graphic designers. Each hardcover book (approx. 30 x 43 cm) is bound by hand with Japanese binding, signed and numbered by the artist, and published in an edition of 300 copies.
Because of the sophisticated printing methods involved, each print is unique, an original. Scholz uses the world's best reproduction/photographic printing techniques. Digital files undergo traditional darkroom chemistries and develop on paper with red, green, and blue light (C-Prints). Some will be printed as pigment print or as UV print. Black and White pictures will be also presented on Baryta paper. Before binding, in some books the prints are mounted fully on special boards. For pigment prints, Scholz works with Hahnemühle paper and for UV-prints (digital screen printing), Scheufelen paper. Some books will be printed with a special digital color technology on Munken, a Swedish paper.
Scholz works with the printers Ralf Lenk / Scancolor and Max van Pham / Fine Art Factory—dedicated artisans who always find innovate ways to produce perfect pictures. Given the unparalleled production and specialization involved, Edition GALERIE VEVAIS guarantees the quality of these prints for up to 100 years.
For collectors of this stunning series WERKDRUCK, edition GALERIE VEVAIS offers an exclusive display of acrylic glass which doubles as a minimalistic sculpture for private living rooms, galleries, and libraries. The basic model for this acrylic stand holds four VEVAIS-Werdruck books. But for those who need more space, the basic model can be extended in two ways. By standing the sculpture in one line or by facing the corners inward, you can add four more books to your collection for a total of eight. The second model can be extended to a more dimensional sculpture of unlimited capacity.
The first thirty copies will sell for approx. 560 Euros, after which the price will increase.
