A hand-signed, limited edition boxed canvas by Scarlett Raven entitled Futility.
Collaborating under the banner Maven Art, Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot are acknowledged to be the world’s first augmented reality fine artists, deconstructing the process of painting via the mediated realities of modern technology. Within their method, digital meets analogue and paint collaborates with pixels. Branding themselves ‘The Augmentists’, their work appears conventional on the surface utilising the medium of oil paint, however if you look beneath the surface you will find animated layers, stories, poetry, film and music; taking the viewer on a journey mapping the multiple stages through which a blank canvas becomes a repository for unfettered emotional impulses.
Scarlett says: "This is our fifth use of a Wilfred Owen poem. It's called Futility. It's a beautiful, gentle and wistful poem written as though from a parent to a lost child." Here is a quote:
'Move him into the sun-
Gently it's touch awoke him once,
At home, whispering of fields half sown.
Always it woke him even in France.
Until this morning and this snow.
If anything might rouse him now
The kind old sun will know.'
The concept of The Danger Tree evolved collaboratively between Scarlett and Marc, and Scarlett felt strongly Marc should be credited for his digital input and project involvement, so all limited editions have been co-signed by them both.
