What you can buy.
You can purchase the Yerka Art in different ways, depending on your needs and how much you intend to spend.
– the most valuable and decorative kind of art, painted on canvas with acrylic paints.
They are also most expensive, that is not surprising when you know how much time the Artist has to spend to create it. Usually a new acrylic work is a great event. Works made on this medium have outstanding brightness, most vivid colours resulting in three-dimensional effects. Using acryl, it enables the Artist to show all details of his complex works.
– made on soft paper with special pastel crayons, also require lots of time of work, however they may not be able to render so much details and express less three-dimensional effect than acrylics. Instead of this, they give smoothness and softness of forms and provide full colour of clear pigments. Pastel works are often used by Yerka as preliminary projects of future acrylic paintings.
– it is a new born technique of reproduction of a work based on the original item – a limited edition high quality signed prints.
They are made in issues of 19 or 50 pieces, each is signed by the Artist and numbered (for ex. 3/19 means third of 19 issued). Giclee is a follower of lithograph or serigraph.
Each giclee is accompagnied by a certificate signed by the Artist and the Print House.
Giclees are sold unframed or framed in wooden frame with passepartout behind glass.
– made with pencil (or crayons) on paper, they are mostly projects or sketches of larger compositions. Despite its sketchy style , they are highly finished and charming, often desired by collectors.
The information about framing is available at the work description.
Giclees are mostly sold without frame, while pastels and acrylics do have frames.
How to order an acrylic (pastel) painting
Acrylic paintings of Jacek Yerka require months of thorough work, depending on size and complaxity of the main idea. The Artist is able to make about 6 acrylics paintings per year, so the delays are importants. If you want an acrylic painting:
- first choose a theme/project from our projects section
- send us an email with your choice
- we will notify you about the delay, best sizes of the work (not all sizes fit all projects) and the price
- If you agree with terms, we ask you for 30% advance and the work starts
You must be aware, that a project reflects just a rough idea of the final work, that will be filled with many more details, structures and enriched in colours. Some small suggestions to the work are acceptable but in general it is much better to avoid any influence to Artist’s vision as he gets best results when his spirit is not bound by anything.
More, the projects by themselves – which are usually small size drawings made with pencil or crayon are also available for collectors through auctions on Agra-Art site or in our shop section.
Pastel works are more like projects to acrylic paintings, they are rarely made for a special demand. They help Yerka to develop more consistent idea of future final work, but due to the technique they cannot render all beauty and colourfulness of acrylic painting.
Some acrylic paintings and pastels can be found in our Art Shop area or on Agra-Art auctions. Sometimes the old works come back to us and are put on sale as well.
How to order a giclee
You can order a giclee based of a chosen painting. Not all paintings are suitable for making giclees – as some of them have such richess of colours that giclee technique is not able to render it properly.
Buying or ordering is easy :
- Some of giclees are available at once – as we may have it in stock. You can check it in our Art shop.
- If the one you look for is not available we can make it upon your order. First send us number, title or picture of the painting upon which you would like the giclee to be made. We check if the work is suitable for it (if there is not a risk of strong color distortion).
- The process of preparing the giclee takes up to 14 days
