Online, March 28, 2012 (Newswire.com) - SAN FRANCISCO -Solid Line Products, LLC recently addedworks by Ray Beldner to its ArtCase™ line of iPad and iPad 2 book cases. The iPad book cases featuremeta portraits of celebrities that were created by Ray Beldner and photographs of New York City by Richard Berenholtz.
Ray Beldner's "Meta Portraits" of Celebrities
Fans of Justin, Barack, Oprah, Jennifer, Kanye, Britney, Conan, and other celebrities can get these iPad book cases for the original iPad and iPad 2. The featured portraits were the result of Beldner's interest in how the media creates celebrity with images and how viewers interpret them. Beldner created what he calls "uber portraits" by collecting and layering the first 101 images returned by a Google search on each of the subject on a particular day.
The abstract portraits are of celebrities, sports figures, political, and spiritual leaders. Twelve were selected to be featured on iPad book cases. "We are featuring the portraits of the celebrities with an ardent fan base because they'll naturally be the first to appreciate them," said Henry Lo, founder & CEO of Solid Line Products. "But we also expect art lovers to appreciate the images for their uniqueness, humor, and for being great conversation starters."
A native San Franciscan, Ray Beldner creates art using a number of mediums - installations, sculpture, digital media, photography, and text-based works. His work can be found in private and public collections, including the Smithsonian Center for American Art and Portraiture, National Portrait Gallery, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, to name a few. He has also received critical attention in Artforum, The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, Art Papers, Playboy, and Wired. Adding his work to iPad book cases is another way for Beldner to get more exposure for his work.
Richard Berenholtz's New York Photographs on iPad Book Cases
Solid Line also added 15 new cases featuring Richard Berenholtz's photographs of New York. Half of the images are from Berenholtz's most recent book, New York Deco, which highlights architectural details of New York City's most famous landmarks. The other half are panoramic views of the New York City skyline and photos of landmarks such as the Chrysler & Empire State buildings as well as the Statue of Liberty.
Similar to a hardback book cover, these iPad book cases are handcrafted for the original iPad and iPad 2. The artwork is printed onto the iPad cases using environmentally friendly inks.
