Roland DG bring LO-FI Collective artists work to life

15-Dec-2010

LO-FI Collective is Australia's premier arts program has proved itself to be at the forefront of collective arts projects. Over the past 20 weeks it has housed and showcased an outstanding array of local and international artists, designers and photographers.

On the 7th December 2010, Roland DG Australia, the official print sponsor of the LO-FI Collective, held a special demonstration day for all previous exhibiting artists. The session allowed artists to witness firsthand the fine art printing process and the vast range of creative finishes available with Roland's selection of digital printers and media.
Anthony McCausland, Marketing Communications & Graphic Designer at Roland DG remarked:

"The LO-FI Collective was a fantastic project to be involved with and Roland has produced some amazing prints over the last few months. The spectacular artwork that came through the LO-FI Collective enabled Roland to push new boundaries for eco-solvent and UV LED printing for fine art and photography.

The recent Demo Session held at the LO-FI Collective gallery was a fantastic opportunity to further demonstrate the specialised features of the Roland printers and allow artists to explore new creative effects such as UV Gloss, embossing and metallic's. We received a great range of creative pieces submitted by various artists and photographers who attended the session to view the results and learn more about the process.

ll the artists were amazed at the results with the Roland VS and LEC Series printers, and many were keen to start using these effects in their print design."

Curator of the LO-FI Collective, Marty Routledge commented:

"Roland DG's wide format printing is second to none. The Giclée quality and their range of media - in particular the textured art stocks, make illustrations and paintings unidentifiable as replicas. Their support of both LO-FI collective and Go Font Ur Self, has positioned Roland DG at the forefront of fine art digital printing."

The relationship between LO-FI and Roland DG will continue to build, as McCausland adds:

"We look forward to working with LO-FI Collective in the future and continuing to push creativity in print to the next level."
