Fine Art and High Art
Fine art eludes any easy definition. It may, however, may be said to refer primarily to the practice of the visual arts in which aesthetic contemplation, theoretical intention, and technique are all undertaken on a certain plane of sophistication, often learned in fine art academies, or through other academic endeavors. While today largely synonymous with high art, the fine arts developed from a multitude of social and artistic impulses. Before modernity, art was more uniformly a proof of social status, an object of religious devotion, and a palimpsest of truth.
Fine art painting, printing, and sculpture started to become a movement unto itself in the early modern period in Europe, roughly between the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. It was anticipated by traditions and contemporary fine arts from China, Japan, Persia, and other countries. Antiquities, including prehistoric cave paintings, informed movements in classicism and primitivism, both of which have been profound currents that the fine arts in the 20th and 21st centuries have practiced, appropriated - and tried to make their escapes from.
Contemporary Fine Art
Fine art's identity today as a medium drawn to irony and social critique is largely built on the reputations of famous names of contemporary art like Gerhard Richter and David Hockney. Largely propelled by concepts, contemporary fine art may be found across traditional media like painting, printmaking, dance, or photography, but also in video, and as ephermal installations, the eventual dismantling of which is crucial to the message.
Works by Lumas artists like Dean West" and Hugo Pondz are reminiscent of those of David Hockney. Takashi Murakami, with his famous pop artworks, has created a contemporary visual langauge all his own.
Lumas Fine Art Prints
Fine art printing is one of the most storied chapters in art, and today remains one of the most interesting artistic media. Lumas partners with Whitewall, the world's greatest photo lab and print shop, to create its high-quality limited editions. Unlike cheap giclee printing, a Lumas print is created as a photograph. Our prints are produced over special aluminum plates, and can be face-mounted under museum-grade acrylic glass. Our fine art prints are museum-quality reproductions of original artworks, executed in the media of photography, canvas painting, drawing, and digital processing - and often as mixed media, combining several different techniques - before being transformed into our award-winning fine art prints.
