    The Strange Case Company has just bought out three prints inspired the Andy Warhols Pop Art Campbells soup cans. However these three have some very different contents.

    Lenticular images give the illusion of depth (3D), movement or merge two different images. They do this by taking images and splicing them into strips these are then interlaced with other images. Over the top of the image is a magnifying lens this is broken up into lenticules which show the viewer a different image as the image is viewed from different angles. It is a highly specialised process and requires the highest quality precision printing to create a perfect image. Artists such as Peter Blake and Damien Hirst have bought their works to life using the Lenticular printing method. Other artists like Martin Richardson and Julian Opie specialise in producing art that moves or appears 3D David Bowie - Experimental Portrait by Martin Richardson This type of printing has a fascinating history, from seventeenth century Royal portraits, to early corporate advertising, and kitsch memorabilia. In 1692, French painter Bois-Clair discovered he could achieve a multi-dimensional effect on canvas by interposing a grid of vertical lathes between the viewer and the painting. He has been held to be the inventor of two-way paintings but there is evidence that he had been following even older traditions. ‘Turning Pictures’ were known of in the seventeenth century and are referred to by Shakespeare. You can make one of these simple lenticulars using folded paper. The first images to be described as ‘lenticular’ were produced in the 1930s by Victor Anderson. By the late 1940s, Mr Anderson’s company, ‘Vari-Vue’, was producing millions of simple lenticular images a year for everything from postcards of women winking to Cracker Jack prizes, political campaign buttons, and magazine inserts. The technology for lenticular printing gained popularity in the 1960’s and 1970’s featuring on postcards, book covers, rulers and all sorts of printed products. Notable lenticular prints from this time include the limited-edition cover of the Rolling Stone’s album and Roy Lichtenstein’s art work ‘Fish and Sky. In 2004 Chris Levine to created a lenticular portrait of Her Majesty The Queen. Chris’s 21st century work, 'Lightness of Being', was the first ever 3D portrait of The Queen. To create his lenticular print Chris Levine and a technical team took over 10,000 images and 3D data-sets during two sittings at Buckingham Palace, but the portrait is made up of just nine them. Now we have amazing new lenticular from Magnus Gjoen and Eelus with more to come so watch this space for some fantastic moving works of art. View all Lenticular prints $test =

    An exciting new exhibition opens at the Serpentine Galleries in London today of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (1862–1944), who is now regarded as a pioneer of abstract art. Group X, No. 1. Altarpiece, 1915; Oil and metal leaf on canvas, 237.5 x 179.5 cm; Courtesy of Stiftelsen Hilma af Klints Verk; Photo: Moderna Museet / Stockholm Her paintings were not seen publicly until 1986, but she was working in the early 20th century pre-dating the first purely abstract paintings by Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich. Hilma af Klint painted in near isolation from the European avant-garde. Fearing that she would not be understood, she stipulated that her abstract work should be kept out of the public eye for 20 years after her death. Klint was classically trained but she moved away from this with her membership of an all-female artist group called ‘The Five’. They conducted séances to encounter what they believed to be spirits who wished to communicate via pictures, leading to experiments with automatic writing and drawing, which pre-dated the Surrealists by several decades. Group IV, No. 3. The Ten Largest, Youth, 1907; Tempera on paper mounted on canvas, 321 x 240 cm; Courtesy of Stiftelsen Hilma af Klints Verk; Photo: Moderna Museet / Stockholm This Serpentine exhibition focuses primarily on her body of work, The Paintings for the Temple, which dates from 1906–15. In 1905 Klint was ‘commissioned’ from an entity, which the group named Amaliel, to create this most important body of work. Consisting of 193 predominately abstract paintings in various series and subgroups, the artist painted a path towards a harmony between the spiritual and material worlds; good and evil; man and woman; religion and science. This major work charted the influence of science and religion on af Klint’s works, from the discovery of electromagnetic waves to the spiritual teachings of anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner. Steiner was af Klint’s mentor and his presence in her life resulted in the cycle becoming more orderly with depictions of symbols and motifs, such as shells, snakes, lilies and crosses, from his spiritual movement. Don’t miss this amazing chance to see some of the earliest abstract paintings in western art, and lear more about this unique woman.
