Conservation & Restauration of paintings
Everything of value needs a loving hand...
It must be cared for, maintained and ultimately repaired.
Often paintings have a hard life, they are exposed to temperature fluctuations,
varying humidity, dust, insects etc.
Cleaning of surface, I.e. nicotine, dust and insects
Removal of old and yellowed varnish
Reaffixing of detached paint
Repair of damaged areas, such as holes, cracks and deformation of canvas
Retouching missing colour layer
Re-stretch or re-line canvases/ support
Some of my restauration work:
Erik Hoppe, Tuxen, Asger Jorn, Arrol, I Klitten, Rikizo Fukao, Paul Fischer, Walasse Ting
