Colours of the spectrum in museum show

The exhibit of 40 images printed on metal is coming to the Chilliwack Museum from June 21 to July 31.

Michael and Jutta Schulz from Rosedale is showing a series of photographic images printed on metal at the Chilliwack Museum in an exhibit called Spectrum from June 21 to July 31.

The bright colours and hues in the photographs printed on metal become deeper and richer because of it.

That is what attracted a Rosedale couple to the printing technique that’s become their signature style.

Michael and Jutta Schulz present Spectrum, a new exhibit of about 40 abstract images in the Chilliwack Museum, from June 21 to July 31.

“We named it Spectrum because we wanted to display the seven main colours. Since it’s light and shadows that define photographs, we wanted to show off the colours,” said Michael.

They got into the metal processing of their work after seeing an ad in photography magazine for free prints made from photos.

“When the sample prints arrived, we were hooked,” he says. “The colours were so true and vibrant on metal. It is very intense.”

They offer different finishes to those purchasing the prints: satin, glossy, or high gloss.

“It makes the photo seem very realistic and it adds depth.”

Michael and his wife Jutta are self-taught photographers who particularly enjoy nature and that’s where we get most of their subject matter.

The photography morphed from being a casual hobby to a real passion for the German-born couple.

“Over time we’ve developed a different way of seeing things,” he says.

They enjoy exploring different genres and techniques, like his penchant for using an infrared filter to captures the invisible light, while Jutta’s experiments with ICM or intentional camera movement offer specific effects.

The exhibition is open during museum hours, Monday to Friday from 9 am – 4:30 p.m. Their images are on display on the first floor and are all for sale, first-offs only.

“We also make it a point that all our works are ‘1 of 1’ and will not be reproduced in any way.”

They only make one copy of each print to make sure.

“We don’t want to get into mass production,” he adds. “We want to keep it unique.”

The show runs at the Chilliwack Museum from Saturday, June 21 to July 31 and the opening day artists’ reception is on June 21 from noon to 2 p.m. Admission is free on opening day and $3 after that.
