Exhibition of moving 3D images by Jeff Robb on view at Hay Hill Gallery
Jeff Robb, Thought Experiment 11, 2012. Lenticular print .
LONDON.- Jeff Robb continually pushes the boundaries in 3D image making. He is one of very few artists who has set out to explore the aesthetic and technical possibilities of ‘lenticular’ photography in his fine art practice. This arresting exhibition of moving 3D images at Hay Hill Gallery, Cork St, London will be the artist’s largest exhibition in London, his home city.

‘Liminal State’ is an exhibition of two parts. The upper gallery features a selection of nude studies and figurative works, never previously seen. Colourful semi-abstract works from Robb’s latest series ‘Eidolon’ and underwater lenticular photographs from the ‘Aerial’ series are shown alongside striking monochrome singular nudes and complex compositions from the ‘Unnatural Causes’ series, featuring multiple moving figures in complex cellular structures made by Robb himself.

Of his pioneering figurative work, Robb comments that his figures “flicker in and out of virtual space as the viewer’s position shifts in front of the work”. His lenticular prints produce an illusion of both depth and movement as the viewer adjusts their field of vision before the work.

The second ‘The Lightness of Being’, an image of The Queen with her eyes closed, has become an iconic image of the 21st century. The third, final portrait was commissioned by Asprey’s jewellers of Mayfair, London and features a real diamond diadem. The portrait will be sold through a sealed bid auction.

What is a lenticular photograph?
Lenticular photography dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century. The process starts by capturing many images taken around a single subject.

Robb himself has designed unique image capture systems which take multiple images simultaneously, capturing real time motion or as a sequence of frames from a single camera.

The images are then combined into a single 3D image on a computer. Red, green and blue lasers expose a photographic substrate, which is combined with a very precise vertically aligned optical lens structure to produce the finished fine art image. Every stage of the process is done by hand and requires great skill.
