Burnham-On-Sea digital artist's work goes on show at town gallery

This impressive computer-generated image of Bath is among the work of Burnham-On-Sea digital artist Tim Duke on show at a gallery in the town this month.

Sea Breeze in Victoria Street is showcasing the work of a large number of local artists, including Tim, Sharon Campbell, Judith Champion, Tony Howell, Graham McPherson and Margaret Mickelwright.

Some of the material on show includes far larger pictures than are usually accommodated, including Tim Duke's very large computer-created image of Bath, as pictured above.

Tim says: "I have been creating art by using computers for 28 years, initially using the first Apple computers in the early 1980s where he'd move around individual pixels using a mouse about the size of half a house brick. The pizels were a maximum of only 56 colours, with files sizes of almost half a megabyte! Today he uses a laser mouse, and a pallet of 17 million colours."

Tim's latest print 'An early morning Bath' is a 2,600 megabyte digital image and has taken about 1,500 hours and over ten months to create.

The big file size makes it possible to produce large versions of the picture. The largest Giclee print on display is 7 feet long. The prints are available as limited edition canvas’, individually made to order, signed and numbered. Light-fast prints are also available in a smaller size, mounted in a steel or wood frame.

The free entry exhibition - which finishes on Monday February 28th - is at Sea Breeze (01278 783276) opposite the Ritz Cinema in Victoria Street. Opening hours are 10am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday, except Wednesdays (early closing at 2.00pm), with Saturday 10am until 5.00pm.
