Fire & Pine founder opens sister company Print & Pine
This endeavor works to brings classic, modern and up-and-coming art to life, each piece meticulously printed with raised, layered ink on sustainably-sourced pine wood, according to Ryan Martz, owner of Fire & Pine and Print & Pine.
By delicately layering the ink, Print and Pine’s technique lifts the artistic strokes off its canvas, aiming to capture the dynamic essence of original brushwork, according to the company. This method allows art enthusiasts to not just view, but to physically engage with the artwork, feeling the depth and texture of each stroke.
“Our vision with Print & Pine is to evolve the relationship between viewer and artwork,” Martz said. “We’re not just reproducing these masterpieces; we’re adding a new, tactile dimension that allows the viewer to explore and connect with the art in a more intimate way.”
The pine wood’s distinctive grain patterns and texture add a unique character to each print, to ensure no two pieces are ever the same.
As part of its mission, Print & Pine is partnering with up-and-coming artists, offering them a medium to express their creativity and reach a wider audience.
“This partnership will give talented artists the exposure they deserve, while enriching our collection with a diverse range of styles and perspectives,” Martz added.
According to the company, Print & Pine represents the next chapter in Fire & Pine’s mission to intertwine creativity, craftsmanship and sustainability. Pine, a renewable resource, serves as the canvas for these pieces.
Print & Pine’s goal is to reimagine the traditional art-viewing experience and push the boundaries of artistic interaction.
