WELCOME TO
THE WORLD OF
CHRISTOPHER JEAUHN BAYNE

LIMITED EDITION FINE ART

My formal introduction to art was through textile design, in Cape Town, South Africa. After arriving in Europe in 1993, I branched out into acrylic painting followed by mixed-media techniques a few years later. I exchanged my brushes and canvasses for digital equivalents in 2015.

 

The artworks are born digitally, they are produced industrially; on acrylic glass, aluminium, photographic paper, textiles or even on wood. Augmented reality reinforces the digital birth of the artwork and assists in the storytelling process. In effect, they come alive in front of the viewer.

 

Inspired by people, society, religion, history, and the natural world in general, my work consists of many layers of imagery, which fuse to form a composite whole. Fascinated by dualism and polarity in all aspects, I create art which blends beauty and horror, yin and yang, dark and light, pixels and dpi, to create an experience, heightened by augmented reality, in which the viewer can move between fascination and consternation. 

Augmented reality, existing outside the final artwork itself, allows me to lift the veil, to add to the story, and bridge the gap, reaching out to the viewer by being in the palm of their hands.

All works are limited editions, with a maximum of only three originals. These are accompanied with a holographic certificate of authenticity, signed by hand. Prints are available, hand signed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Paper, at limited editions of 30 copies only.

My artistic representatives/agents are match group.

 

TECHNIQUE

HARDCOPY DIGITAL.

ON PAPER, METAL, GLASS, WOOD

The creative process is achieved via digital and photographic techniques. The final artwork however, is always meant to be produced in hardcopy. It never remains digital only. The conceptual process hasn't changed much for me compared to when I worked more traditionally. Back then, I would select my canvas type and size, paints, mixed media, brushes, etc. And I still do so digitally! Each artwork is created from the outset, for a particular format and substrate. Digital conception and industrial production always form a comprehensive and seamless experience for me.

LIMITED EDITIONS.

ONLY 3 ORIGINALS, EVER!

 

Only 3 originals are produced of each artwork, each accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, with holographic foil, and hand-signed. 

 

Prints are available, in limited editions of 30 only. These are printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art papers, and are hand-signed. 

AUGMENTED REALITY.

ARTIVIVE APP

 

Due to the layered complexity of many of my works, I have also enhanced them with augmented reality. This allows me to further lift the veil, allowing you to see inside the work itself, a glimpse into my thoughts and influences at the time of creation. The artwork however, is meant to exist alone, outside of the augmented reality zone. But if you want to view the hidden secrets and experience the work in a different way, simply download the free app, ARTIVIVE, and enjoy the journey! ARTIVIVE is available for both iOS and Android.
