"The World's Best in Fine Art...Nothing less".
Testimonials

By Way of Introduction

 

Ten years ago or so, a French art magazine - the world leader in art market information - predicted that the art market would become 3.5 times larger than the present market due to the internet. At that time, I had worked with art in traditional ways for several years. As well as being an artist, designer, etc. I am a Software Engineer for IBM. On the spot, I dropped traditional ways  and started using computer and Internet in as many contexts as possible. All of my existing works were converted to digital format and all new works were created digitally. Now, I would only use online galleries for exhibitions. I would only use traditional physical exhibition in my studio and gallery.

                     

During the first years people from all over the world mocked me. I was surprised by the hateful rhetoric. I tried to enter into a dialogue, but nothing was to be discussed.

                     

Time passed by, and digital art started to become nearly permissible. I was granted the World Art Award for my work in London, UK. I was granted two more awards, one in Rome and one in Montreal. I was appointed member of International Society of Artists and Designers in Rome, Italy. Critics compared me to Mondrian, Miró, Kandinsky, and Warhol. The French author Alain Johannes; Paris even compared me to the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. He wrote, “It takes a singular intent in the layout, in script, rudimentary forms of brightly colored.”

 

Looking at Johann Sebastian Bach’s work, I found out that he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, an unrivalled control of harmonic and motivic organization, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. I believe that Johannes’s comparison is about contrapuntal technique.


Tipping point                  

I now had passed the tipping point, Digital art was not dubious anymore; it was now kind of trendy.

 

Building on Gutenberg

However, I had one last huge problem; a problem that I believe was caused by Johann Gutenberg (1400-1468) from Mainz in Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. His invention of mechanical movable type printing started the Printing Revolution and is widely regarded as the most important event of the modern period. This innovation played a key role in the development of the Renaissance, Reformation, and the Scientific Revolution. It also laid the material basis for the modern knowledge-based economy and the spread of learning to the masses.                  

But since Gutenberg printing focused on printing text, keywords minimized printing costs, optimizing speed, minimizing inking - and overall focus was on minimizing costs. To the artist, the printing process has to do with pigmented inks, color calibration, fade, and water resistance. Overall the result must be a high quality print and most important, sustainable.

 

After I participated in “2010 International Fine Art” in South Africa, where digital artworks were printed on Hahnemühle paper using pigment-based archival inks a new world opened up to me as an artist. It was the first time I saw the phrase “pigment-based archival inks” in a digital environment. Now we might solve “One last huge problem.”

I had an idea to publish my best 325+ artworks and formulate ten dogmas to be fulfilled to reach the goal “The World’s Best in Fine Art…Nothing Less.”

 

This, of course, is subjective - not least because “The World’s Best” is a subjective judgment. What is important to notice is, for the first time - and I mean the first time - I was able to print the exact colors that I wanted. Without exception, any kind of printing has involved some kind of conversion of the colors to another color-system. The colors you use on your screen normally are RGB. In order to print you must convert to CMYK, Pantone, or some other system. Even if you make lithography, you have to mix colors. Manufactured colors have never revealed the true beauty of the artwork. Now I can calibrate my monitor and my printer using the Advanced Profiling System with validation.

1.  
A High Quality Art Work created on computer/workstation in vector
based graphic software


The concept of Quality is very difficult to define when it comes to art.
We have no objective way to settle if an artwork is High Quality.
I choose to say that the judgment concerning my own works is mine.
I am very well aware that this judgment is subjective.
My subjective judgment is based on the response from others.
See “The Complete Fine Art Works of World of Art Award Winning Artist Asbjorn Lonvig, Denmark,” which exhibits and describes every single artwork and “respond from others” (Critics and Testimonials).
The artwork is created by means of IT.
A computer with vector based graphic software like OpenOffice.org Draw, Paint Shop Pro 9; Paint Shop Pro Photo X3, Adobe Illustrator, MS Paint, MS Draw or others is used.
Vector based so that every single details of a motif can be re-sized.
For conversion to traditional painting style with visual strokes etc. and producing digital paintings the software Corel Painter Essential 4 and Corel Painting 11 is installed.
The workstation is a Hewlett Packard Z200 workstation with a 21.5-inch Wide screen LCD Monitor.Graphic computingand resizing high amounts of pixels demands a workstation with considerable CPU power (Intel® Core™ i5-660 processor (3, 33 GHz, 4 MB cache, 1333 MHz memory or similar) and a large RAM (4 MB). The hard disk must be large in order to store pictures (0.3 TB – 1 TB is equal to 1000MB).
For taking digital photos and for taking Full HD video for a new website and for a comprehensive You Tube presence a 18 Mb has been included in the concept.

 

2. 
A High Quality Projector for dynamic determination of art work sizes and general appearance.

       

The Major Manufacturer Projector is connected to the workstation through a VGA cable. The projector image is  
displayed on a white traditional canvas 200 x 150 cm (78.7” x 59.1”) or 300 x 225 cm (118.1” x 88.6”), depending on
which size-spectrum you want to work in.

The canvas is placed on a traditional Mabef M/06 Studio Easel.

At any time in the creative process, you can determine the image size and value it on a screen of canvas in an
environment simulating traditional methods.


 

3. 
A High Quality Medium, that is paper of high quality or canvas of high quality.

I use the same paper and canvas, as “2010 International Fine Art” project, which took place in June 2010 in South Africa. I have chosen Hahnemühle in southern Lower Saxony in Germany. Their range of products for Fine Art Printing is an award winning collection of genuine artist papers in a variety of surfaces, base weights and structures, including ink-jet printable canvases. Photographers and artists use Hahnemühle Fine Art products with a premium ink-jet coating for exclusive photography, digital artworks, and reproduction of art and photography in a superior gallery and museum standard. Hahnemühle's papers provide an impressive and unique way to combine the precision of digital print media with the wonderful grace of genuine artist papers made in a traditional way.
All Hahnemühle's products meet the highest standards of color range, depth, contrast, rendering, and color gradation. This enables extraordinary print results. The close cooperation maintained with leading ink-jet printer manufacturers assures the universal compatibility of Hahnemühle's products.

Hahnemühle was founded in 1584 and they are the oldest German paper-makers manufacturing papers for traditional and digital artists. Since the founding of the company more than 400 years ago, a forward-looking attitude has formed the basis for continuous growth and the innovative strength of the company. Close cooperation with national and international partners enables speedy transformation of research results into new products. These are successfully marketed via a global distributor network.
My choice of paper and canvas is:

A. Hahnemühle Museum Etching 350 gsm is a natural white, 100% Cotton Rag, OBA free paper with a slight texture and a soft homogenous surface.

B. Hahnemühle Artist Canvas 340 gsm. Canvas Artist has an appreciable linen structure with a matte ink-jet coating. The ink-jet coating guarantees excellent image definition and color graduation.4. Access to printer manufacturer’s image performance laboratories as well as access to Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. for tests of print quality and sustainability.

Access to printer manufacturer’s image performance laboratories as well as access to Vilhelm Imaging Research,  Inc. for tests of print  quality and sustainability.

Developing innovative, high-quality hardware, ink and paper that produce professional-quality, highly fade-resistant digital print is a priority for Hewlett Packard and is an important feature that differentiates the quality of The Major Manufacturer’s digital printing systems from those of most of its competitors.

The Major Manufacturer ’s  Image Permanence Labs. Hewlett Packard has two state-of-the-art image permanence labs in San Diego, California and Corvallis, Oregon with custom image permanence testing equipment. These labs develop new test procedures to better predict image permanence across a wide range of degradation mechanisms including light fade, ozone fade, humidity-fastness, and dark storage (thermal) fade.

The Major Manufacturer ’s image permanence testing equipment covers a wide range of acceleration factors, and is temperature- and humidity-controlled in order to replicate and predict image permanence under conditions that are representative of how customers actually store and display prints.
For fluorescent light fade, the permanence predictions in The Major Manufacturer’s labs correlate very well to published Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc.’s permanence test results.

The Major Manufacturer’s image permanence testing equipment is highly specialized and cannot be readily duplicated without substantial investment.
For example, typical light fade tests are performed at 23ºC and 50% relative humidity even in the presence of extremely bright illumination (up to 350 times brighter than typical room), which is difficult for equipment to achieve and maintain. Significant human training and resources are needed to appropriately generate samples, take periodic measurements, and check and calibrate the equipment operating conditions.
Acceleration factors between 2.5X to 350X the normal assumed daily light levels are used to span the range between ”real world but very slow” and ”highly accelerated” test conditions. Depending on the test model, both fluorescent and xenon arc light sources are also used to simulate residential indoor and commercial application daylight window fade conditions.

Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. Although there is no official industry standard yet for light fade testing, Hewlett Packard follows the general testing method developed and used by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc. (WIR), Grinnell, Iowa a leading image permanence test lab.  

As a best practice, The Major Manufacturer regularly submits its inks and printers to the WIR labs for light fade and dark storage stability testing. When available, The Major Manufacturer uses WIR results as its primary substantiation for fade resistance claims on prints produced with The Major Manufacturer photo systems. See Wilhelm Imaging Research Inc. test methods and test results at  wilhelm-research.com.

 

5.
A High Quality Certificate of Authenticity.

The Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity was designed to protect the security and genuineness of your limited edition art works and reproductions on Hahnemühle paper and to reduce the risk of forgery. Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibers.


6.
A High Quality Hologram System.

Each certificate is – as mentioned above - made of premium deckle edged moulder made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibers. A serialized numbered hologram is added to the certificate. A second, identically numbered hologram is then applied to the reverse side of the artwork. The combination of certificate and hologram assures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art. Text and layout of the certificate can be created individually.

 

 7. 
High Quality Inks, which must be pigment based inks.

The Major Manufacturer’s 12-ink printing system, using Vivera pigment inks, features new   73 Chromatic Red ink. The Major Manufacturer’s Designjet produces high-quality prints with smooth transitions and true neutral grays using the Quad-Black Ink set for a wide range of creative applications. In addition, the Gloss Enhancer achieves superior gloss uniformity and minimizes bronzing on most glossy photo papers. Ideal for photo and fine art print service providers, graphic designers, and commercial printers, the Designjet Photo Printer achieves print permanence of more than 200 years.


 

8.
A High Quality Printer from a major printer manufacturer.

Several Major Manufacturers have been considered. A few were  excluded because of lack of sustainability. The Major Manufacturer has been chosen from a overall business point of view only – not a technically point of view. A major manufacturer was selected. As a Software Engineer by IBM I have made this kind of decisions before - very well knowing, that another manufacturer might have specific products that at the moment might be technically better. In a time span of 5 years, my decision always proved to be right. In this case, I just had to prove to myself that The Major Manufacturer  meets all my demands. The printer in question is a Designjet from the Major Manufacturer. There are not a lot of these Designjets in the commercial market. When it comes to printing speed, use of ink etc. it’s not a winner. You might say it is too expensive. When it comes to my demands as an artist, it is simply the best.


 

9. 
A High Quality software for managing calibration, advanced profiling etc.

The Designjet Photo Printer offers an enhanced Color Center tool that enables users to easily perform calibration and profiling tasks. Leveraging the built-in embedded spectrophotometer and  DreamColor technologies, users can easily generate custom International Color Consortium (ICC) profiles in-house under specific environmental conditions and create paper presets for the Designjet printer. The DreamColor Technologies, together with the embedded spectrophotometer, greatly simplifies accurate color matching and profiling. Professionals ultimately save time and effort by easily and consistently producing the colors they envision is Important, that the printer supplier works together with paper-makers in order to achieve the best result possible. On Hahnemühle’s website www.hahnemuehle.com the ICCs for the Designjet and both Museum Etching 350 gsm and Artist Canvas 340 gsm are ready for free download.

 



10.
A High Quality Aftercare using the most innovative choice in protective materials.
Hahnemühle Protective Spray is my choice in protective materials. The Hahnemühle Protective Spray offers incredible protection for your valuable ink-based images. This odorless spray seals the printed surfaces and protects them from dirt, fingerprints, and moisture. It increases the water-resistance of printouts and protects images from fading caused by UV rays. The Protective Spray is fast drying and does not turn yellow. It is completely transparent and has no influence whatsoever on the original colors of the paper. Hahnemühle Protective Spray probably doubles colorfastness.

*) For long time I had the theory, that every single of my artworks contained an inherent amount of inspiration on the basis of which you could compose music. This theory was confirmed by organist, pianist, and composer Carsten Thomsen.

I simply placed a couple of artworks on the music stand of a piano. His perception of the inherent amount of inspiration r made him play the tune, which I had in mind.
I’ll compose a piece of music to every single artwork and then publish it on the internet along with the art work.

The reason for 2 YAMAHA Digital keyboard is another composer is supposed to assist me.

Collecting

Digital art has become trendy.

And.

I can use IT in the entire art process - including fine art print with high quality and high sustainability - even in my own art studio...the last adjustments to my studio configuration has closed a ring of developments that began 10 years ago.

YES, sure I’m a lucky devil...Nothing Less. I am even a lucky bastard.

My friend Carsten Thomsen is a lucky bastard, too. Carsten Thomsen and I have worked with the synergy effects of music and visual art in art events. Carsten Thomsen has a master degree from Royal Danish Academy of Music.

I can best compare my feelings after having installed the Technical Prerequisites with the feelings of a pianist achieving to buy his first Steinway & Sons Grand Piano and install it in his music room. Some years ago, Carsten  Thomsen bought his first Steinway & Sons Piano. He was just happy. He even felt he had never played that well. Likewise, I feel that I have never created fine art that well. My pianist friend said that he could not in decency play badly on his Steinway & Sons. Likewise, I feel that I cannot in decency create anything less than the best using “My new Steinway & Sons”. Steinway & Sons is probably one of the greatest brands on Earth.

The finest that you can get.

A Steinway & Sons Piano Grande is the finest that you can get. “My new Steinway & Sons” gives me the opportunity to make the best art works possible.

Dear Asbjorn Lonvig,
The Staff at ARTROM Gallery has met to view your images.
We have also visited your websites and entered immediately into your world.
We are impressed with your ability to simplify a concept into an image and concentrate it,
to incude only what is necessary. In evaluating your work for its strong graphic content, we  became aware of the size of the originals; they are all quite large and are acrylic on canvas. 
In viewing your works we discussed not only their graphic content, but discussed them as paintings, as objects unto themselves. Knowing that the images exist somewhere as objects of that dimension is far different than looking at images stored in some computer, regardless of how they were created. One can appreciate the graphic illustrative/informative quality of an image on a computer screen, but it stops there, until you know more about the image as it exists in "real life",
and this adds another dimension to the work. It also adds credibility to the commitment the artist has made to the image.
We feel that you believe in your commitment as an artist.
This is one of the aspects we look for in our GUILD Members.
When one believes in himself the message is clear.  We are also interested in your "Manifesto" below.        
"It's about the fact that the art market is predicted to grow 3,5 times because of the Internet.
It's about my decision to stake everything on the internet.
It's about concentrating my efforts on the internet when it comes to sales.
It's about my decision to make new standards and challenge art traditions by
making my drafts on a computer and exhibit the drafts.
And insist upon that a computer is nothing but a new tool.
And insist upon that using a computer is as worthy as not doing it!!!
Worthier????" 
We would like to help you accomplish these things, and welcome you to become a member.

Your wide vision and conecting compex ideas in simple presentation are of high value.
You obsereve sights digest them and present them in colorful simple forms, have a quality of their own.
I wish you great success.
Today in India is Great Festival of Lights- Diwali,
On this occasion your paintings gave us enjoyment.
