Manneraak Exhibition “Norwegian Hallucinations”

Canoe studios and Legion Paper presents selected artwork by the Norwegian photographer and artist S.Manneraak in the exhibition "Norwegian Hallucinations".

This project is an immersion in to the artists impressions and experiences throughout a lifelong, close, relationship to the grandeur nature, its roughness as well as its wistfulness. It embraces the mythical landscape which manifests itself in the human mind during a, sometimes lonely, meeting between natures mystery and beauty, and the visual and spiritual experience after days and nights without sleep and food.

The artwork merges the mysterious Norwegian heritage, with the artist's own personal expression through mixed techniques. The most prominent is blending photos and acrylic paint. Then the artworks are printed on MOAB metallic paper.

The photographer and artist S.Manneraak is up and coming in the art world after several years as a well known fashion photographer with clients worldwide. After great success and hard work in the commercial business,

Manneraak wants to reinvent his artistic side with a new name and a broader approach to concepts and the art of photography. In addition to taking photography and painting, he is experimenting with other expressions through film, graphics and sculptures. Manneraak had his debut in the Norwegian State Exhibition in 2004, and since then he has had several separate exhibitions in Norway and abroad. The artist has sold his artwork to private and public collections in Norway. The Norwegian prime minister and minister of industry, as well as the major of Bergen, all have a Manneraak artwork on their walls. These artworks are all commissioned by Bergen Naeringsraad (the Bergen board of industry).

One highlight of this year is that Chanel decorated their headquarters in Paris with a 105x150 cm large Manneraak artwork printed on "SlickRock" MOAB metal paper.

Manneraak's Exhibition will be held from Oct. 26th- Nov. 4th at:
Canoe Studios
601 W 26th St
Suite 1465
New York, NY 10001

Looking to Mount your Slickrock Silver?

Moab's new Slickrock Metallic Silver created a jaw-dropping repsonse from our audience. The only greater response we recieved was towards the Slickrock Metallic Silver face-mounted to Acrylic. This has stirred up a tremendous amount of interest in Slickrock Silver. The image above is an image by Harold Davis done by Lamin-8

The process requires 3 components to our prints: Slickrock Metallic Silver, an adhesive film and the acrylic. 

Our recommendation? 

For laminating use a high grade clear adhesive film from MacTa

For the acrylic use a high grade plexi glass.  Ensure that the plexi glass does not contain any gas as once the print is sealed it will look to escape and create bubbles in the print.  Here are some grades we suggest from Acrylite here and here

Jonathan Morse uses Colorado Fiber for FABRICATIONS

Jonathan Morse, a lifelong photographer and printmaker who uses Moab papers extensively ranging from Entrada, Slickrock, Moenkopi Unryu and others, will be presenting a new body of work entitled FABRICATIONS opening on May 10, 2014 at Byzantium Lofts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  His work weaves photographic and drawn material into wholly new images, celebrating 21st century mark-making made possible by the incredible range of substrates now available to the contemporary artist who wishes to use digital imaging as an original printmaking medium.  For this exhibit he has chosen Moab Colorado Fiber Gloss for its brilliant color rendition, rich blacks and its ability to capture detail with an almost three-dimensional ink deposit.  For more information about Jonathan and the past decade of his printmaking, please log on to his website www.jmorseart.com

Canon U.S.A.’s national “Try My Photo” program enables eligible customers to upload select images to the Canon Try My Photo website. 

With this program, eligible consumers in the United States have the opportunity to submit one digital image per household from select Canon PIXMA Pro printers, and for a limited time, a consumer can print their image on Entrada 100% cotton fine art paper or the new Slickrock Metallic Pearl.

NEW Slickrock 11x14 sheet size

Deep from within our R&D facility (somewhere in the vicinity of La Sal mountains) we're excited to introduce the new 11”x14” sheet size for our Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 paper.

The new 11x14 Slickrock format was introduced as a direct response to our customers seeking the new size for portfolio printing. Considered a standard for portfolios and framing, the 11x14 format matches original large format cameras, and as a result, became one of the default image presentation formats.  

Designed for photographers seeking to enhance their images with a metallic look, Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 transforms an image into lifelike, almost 3D quality. Black & White images shine on this new paper producing deep dark blacks and ultra-bright highlights.

The new 11x14 Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 is available in 25 sheet boxes. The rest of the Slickrock range consists of 50 sheet boxes - sized 5”x7” 8.5”x11”, 13”x19”, A2 and A4 - and rolls sized 17, 24 and 44 inches wide by 100 feet long.

We're heading to New Orleans

We're packing up the crates and trekking down to the Big Easy this weekend for the annual ImagingUSA show.  

The spotlight in our booth will be focused on the new Slickrock Metallic Pearl. If you've been pondering whether to give this paper a test-drive, then swing by our booth #316 to pick up your free sample.

We'll also be showing (and sampling) the Museo range of fine art inkjet papers, including their 100% cotton Artist Cards. 

Hope to see you this weekend.

Moab wins two awards

As the year comes to a close we're excited to annouce two industry awards that Moab received. Professional Photographer's of America honored our Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 and the Lasal Exhibition Luster 300 with HotOne 2012 awards in the Fine Art Paper category and the Semi-Gloss/Luster Paper category, respectively.

The Slickrock Metallic Pearl paper got another nod from the editors at Digital Photo magazine who gave the paper their Editor's Choice award.

It's only natural that we think our papers are awesome, but it's nice to be recognized once in a while by our industry.  If you haven't tried the Slickrock Metallic or Lasal Exhibition Luster papers yet (and want to find out what all the excitement is about) then contact us for a free sample.

PhotoPlus Expo - Day One from the floor

Blogging from a very crowded show floor on day one of PPE.  The buzz has been SLICKROCK.  This is a shot of our Slickrock Metallic room featuring large format prints on the new Slickrock Metallic Pearl.  It's a paper that really causes pause.  You find yourself staring at the image wondering what's going on. The photos pop off the paper.

The other buzz at the show is the new Canon PIXMA PRO-1 printer.  The new professional 13" printer officially launched today in the US.  We were fortunate enough to get our Moaby hands on this machine a few weeks ago to test and build profiles, and we can honestly say the PIXMA PRO-1 is a phenomenal printer.  The crazy amount of detail the printer is capable of reproducing is breathtaking.  

If you're at the show, stop by our booth to see the PRO-1 in action spitting out prints on Slickrock for you to take home.

Did I mention profiles for the PRO-1?  Yup, we got 'em.

We've pushed the envelope to deliver a metallic pearl paper that will transform your image into something stellar.  Our metallic gallery will demonstrate the power of this paper that you've literally got to see to believe.  Be sure to grab the printed samples that we'll be giving away.

Another new paper that we'll be showing off is our Lasal Exhibition Luster 300.  This is not your mama's photo luster.  Lasal Exhibition Luster is a hefty 300gsm paper that produces images that will blow you away.  Thanks to the latest state-of-the-art, fourth generation coating (4G anyone?), you'll see stunning details in your images that only your photo sensors were privy to (until now).

We'll also be featuring our Moenkopi Japanese Washi paper at the show. Photographer Geoffrey Agrons printed out some stunning images on the Moenkopi Bizan that will make you drool.

Speaking of drooling.  We'll be featuring original photographs from Enzo Beretta, Andy Biggs, Robert Farber, Jim Graham, Joshua Holko, Ryszard Horowitz, Christian Lalonde, Jim LaSala, Michael Soluri, Salvatore Vasapolli and Michael Zide.
