All prints are Digital Pigment prints on museum-quality acid-free papers such as Museum Etching, Canson Rag and Arches Velin. These papers are designed to meet galleries and museum longevity requirements and ensure consistency of shades 200 years old. The choice of paper is suggested by the Photographer according to his or her preferences.
All prints are Digital Pigment Prints using the latest top of the line technology, archival high dynamic inks and 200 years old life paper.
No, the photograph is not signed, instead the Photographer signs a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) which accompanies very limited edition prints (1 to 30). The COA protects the security and genuineness of your limited edition print. Larges editions (31 and more) don't come with a certificate of authenticity.
The smaller print sizes are produced in larger editions and do not come with a Certificate Of authenticity to make them more widely accessible and more affordable. Photographs are available in different formats depending of the artist, small, medium or larger scale. The large-scale print size is normally produced in a very limited edition (1-30 prints) making them more valuable because of the limited number available and they also come with a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.
The Print Atelier aims to achieve accuracy between the photographs you see online and your final print. However we cannot be responsible for minimal differences deriving from reproduction techniques that may exist between the presented image and the print. Computer screens may differ and the colour and contrasts of the image on the screen may not look exactly like what you receive. This is because different types of monitors are calibrated differently. Also, any prints with a soft focus or texture work (grain, spots, etc.) were created that way for artistic purposes.
No. Our prints are on standard paper sizes and we don’t alter the image size and proportions to fit the paper. Each print has a minimum 0.5 inch white border.
Vision and its affect are the driving force behind my work. Using lens-based media and moving images, I explore how visual perception shapes our interpretation of the surrounding world.
I am interested in the multiplicity of perception paradigms, differing within the fields of psychology, phenomenology, neuroscience and film theory. There is space for creative experimentation within the gaps and intersections between these models. Our sensorial system – physically fallible and influenced by memory, mood, ideologies – mediates what we know of the surrounding world. Sometimes, the limits between our internal, ideal and physical visions become blurred. How, then, does what I see compare to what you see? What are the implications for our knowledge systems? How do these systems influence our ways of being in the world, of making decisions, rules, and communing with one another?
My practice challenges our understanding of what we see by using past and present scopic technologies to compare phenomenological experience of the physical world to that of simulated imagery. By complicating the seen, I work to create viewing experiences that investigate the layers of perception. Results become polished experimental surfaces to be imbued with the viewer’s own vision, including moving image, immersive installations, testing prints, and interactive animations.
Annie Briard is a Vancouver based visual and media artist challenging visual perception and memory through moving image and photography focused work.
Briard has exhibited in solo and group shows across Canada and internationally, including galleries and festivals in New York, Rio, Barcelona, Madrid, Basel, Shanghai and Beijing. She has delivered engaging temporary public art in Montreal, Hamilton, Vancouver and Victoria, including video installations Arborescence and Comment délaisser le sol à jamais for Art Souterrain (2009, 2012), interactive animations The Woods and Winterplay (2012-2014) and in 2015 produced the stereoscopic 3D billboard Any Day Now for Art in Transit Toronto and Capture Festival Vancouver.
Briard was an artist-in-residence at the Banff Centre and was selected by the Centre International d'Art Contemporain to represent Canada at the WEYA symposium in England in 2012. The following year, she presented solo shows at Back Gallery Project, Black & Yellow and VIVO media arts centre in Vancouver, and Centre 3 in Hamilton. In 2014, Joyce Yahouda Gallery in Montreal presented 'Sight Shifting', a solo exhibition of new works focused on perception and wonderment. Briard is currently preparing solo exhibitions for Winnipeg and Montreal as well as an artist residency in Spain.
In conjunction with her practice, Annie Briard is an educator at Emily Carr University. She holds a BFA from Concordia University and an MAA from Emily Carr University (2013). Her work is represented by Joyce Yahouda Gallery and Back Gallery Project.
