About the artwork'Three Minutes Thirty (Ultraviolet), 2020', a new release made in the Winter of 2020. This record features a multi-colour vintage record suspended on a black background. The unique artist's process creates a negative, so the faint writing in the centre is often in reverse. Acclaimed contemporary photographers, Richard Heeps and Natasha Heidler have collaborated to make this beautifully mesmerising collection. A celebration of the vinyl record and analogue technology, which reflects the artists practice within photography. This artwork is a limited edition gloss photographic print, dry-mounted to aluminium, presented in a museum board white window mount and a choice of black or white box frame made professionally in the UK. It is signed and numbered on reverse accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Two independently successful photographers, Richard Heeps and Natasha Heidler, began collaborating by experimenting in their Cambridge darkroom, in reaction to the discontinuation of their favourite film. They were able to create their own dichromatic technique, due to their unique equipment - which was gathered when digital took over, leading to labs and educational institutions giving theirs away. The result is something which is neither a straightforward photograph, nor photogram. This special darkroom process they have cultivated, confounds and intrigues both art lovers and photographers alike.
Since 2014 they have released the Vinyl, Stamp and Tape Collections as well as ‘Heidler & Heeps the Notaphilists’. These representations of their personal past combined with the mesmerising effects of the shapes, details and colours have joined art collections all over the world.
