CARPINTERIA, Calif. — February 26, 2008 — Holland Scott Gallery today announces
the debut of the Environmentally Responsible Green Energy Fine Art Lamps. These
lamps combine energy-efficiency technology with fine-art design.
Elegant photographic floral images and art-deco linoleum patterns from the
1930's are the result of energy efficient LED (Light Emitting Diode) lamp technology
and the Giclée (zhee-clay) fine-art printmaking process. The Giclée printmaking
process uses permanent archival vegetable die inks on the cylindrical illuminated
photographic image. Additional lamp designs are in production.
Omni-directional, these LED lamps provide the correct color temperature of
daylight for displaying naturally brilliant photographic colors. They also generate
no heat and are free from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays that may cause fading
over time. More importantly, LED lamps use 80 to 90 percent less energy than
the incandescent lamps they replace.
Inventor and artist, Candy Hawthorne, along with her husband and art dealer,
Scott, also a professional photographer and a true-digital art pioneer, are
the brains behind the first Green Energy Fine Art Lamps. They have been creating
art mediums with computers and technology since 1978.
Scott is a designer and creative evangelist; his contemporary photographic
works are represented in each lamp he designs.
"The natural photographic beauty is complemented with the soft LED lighting;
these new lamps look spectacular," Scott said. "The eco-friendliness of the
new lamps is also very exciting."
The new long lasting LED lighting is provided by LEDtronics. In the U.S. they
are a leading LED lighting design and manufacturing company of direct-incandescent-replacement
long-lived and energy-saving LED bulbs. The LEDtronics lights that are being
used are their TRF-G30-XCW-02
for the larger Art lamps and the
TRF-A19-XCW-02 for the smaller Art lamps.
