Essence, Emotion, and a pinch of Whimsy to taste
Prints on Bamboo
BRYN FORBES GALLERY
The gallery is currently in hibernation after the building was sold.
We are looking for a new location and will reopen later this year
In the mean time we can ship to your directly, or we are
represented by Art Etc. http://www.art-etc.com in Portland
and Fine Art Associates in Hawaii.
Bryn used his computer engineering background to design and build a video/art wall. Made from 9 LCD screens, it's equivalent to a 140" TV. It displays his artwork and enables us to show many more pieces than would fit in our space.

4 pieces in a vertical arrangement is nice for narrow columns or walls.
We sell a number of prints that have been mounted on Bamboo. These make excellent stand out pieces for small spaces. These are available in 5" squares and 8" squares as well as custom sizes and prints.
The standard pieces are 3/4" thick, though other options are available including beveled edges through our custom program. Contact Us for more info
The edges and backs are beautifully polished to be so smooth you won't want to hang on the wall, you'll just brush the buttery smooth wood with your fingertips. The colors and grain of the wood add a wonderful warmth to a room
Multiple bamboo pieces can be arranged to make nice sets
or you could fill an entire wall with a matrix of small prints on bamboo.
This is an example of a custom 16" square

For high detail images, or extremely colorful images, choosing glossy photo paper is often the best option. Most images on the site and many more available upon request can be printed as unframed prints. We can ship this to you flat, or rolled in a tube. We're happy to communicate with your choice of framer to make sure the archival signed print lasts as possible or we can recommend a Portland framer for you.
A gallery wrap is canvas, or a satiny fabric stretched around wood stretcher bars similar to what you might see an oil painting on. They give wonderful color from the side which is great for long hallways. They can be hung as is, or framed in a shadow box frame, or behind glass. We spray out canvas and fabric with a scratch resistant coating, but they still need to be treated gently just as any artwork.

Aluminum as a printing surface is a sleek modern look with a dynamic sheen that changes as you move past the piece. We can print on aluminum up to 4 feet by 8 feet. Aluminum can be float framed (frame is a hidden box in the center of the piece) or box framed (frame sides go straight back from the edge) or it can be unframed and screwed directly to a wall (or ceiling). The ink is fused to the metal, and then covered with a clear coat. It is scratch resistant (though not impervious) and it can be cleaned with a microfiber cloth.
Most of my aluminum pieces are printed without a coat of white ink and a light brushed texture applied, so images can change dramatically as they take on the lustrous qualities of the metal beneath especially in the white areas of the image.

Custom Sizes and Surfaces
Bryn is willing to work with you to create your dream piece. If you are looking for just the perfect fit for a wall, we can print custom sizes or on specific surfaces for you.
Looking for something but not quite sure what?
If you describe what you are looking for, Bryn can put together a selection of images on a private web page for you to peruse. For example "happy and calm" for a spa room, or "Do you have any images of giraffes?"
Bryn would also consider commissions for new pieces.
