The Ship Conductor (fine art print)
At the heart of this fine art print lies an enormous sailing ship in the form of a conductor. The director as metaphor orchestrates the entire flow of operations by keeping the correct timing. Next to the conductor we see towering waves that must be tamed. On the right are trumpet players (personnel) who sway to the rhythm of the wave, while in the far left of the painting the music reverberates with the sound of violins and singing. It is extremely important that the correct timing is adhered to. Also, we can see turbulent times on the left, represented by a pirate ship engulfed in a storm.
A great deal is at stake for the ship’s conductor; he needs to ensure that the ship is always on the right course and prevent it from capsizing as a result of towering waves. With beautiful sounds and the right timing the ship’s conductor is assured of a good result. The orange hull of the ship is unable to mask the fact that here we are concerned with the Dutch mercantile spirit that also casts its nets in foreign waters. The hull is poised over an orchestra pit and flanked by a hydraulic lift. Two musicians make their debut in the orchestra pit. Will they be accepted or not? The water becomes calm and on peering through the portholes (into the future) one sees more peaceful times ahead on the horizon.

Fine Art Print/ Giclée/Piezo Graphic
Fine art print is a high resolution printmaking technique whereby high quality ink is sprayed onto paper. When the process was invented in the late 1980s the name originally applied to fine arts. At the same time, fine art print is also known as giclée or piezo graphic. To clarify the word Giclée we have to look at the French word gicleur, which means ‘nozzle’. While the term piezo is derived from the Greek word piezein, meaning to press. Therefore an indefinite number of prints can be made with this technique. However Toyism fine art prints/giclées/piezo graphics always come in a limited edition, are numbered, signed and come with an official certificate.
