About The Artwork

Originally commissioned by a King, this beautiful Art Nouveau building first opened to the public in the early 1900's. It's dominating exterior sits in a beautiful location overlooking the deep sea waters. This building was one of the most beautiful of the Art Nouveau movement, and it very quickly became an important piece of heritage and history for the city. It attracted wealthy travellers and businessmen from all over. Unfortunate circumstances over the 20th century saw it gradually fall into disrepair. It had many uses, such as a hospital during World War II, and a restaurant during the communist regime. It became too expensive to maintain, it was too elaborate for such a city at that time. It closed in the 90's. It's remained abandoned ever since, there have been few attempts at restoration. Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm Giclee print, a premium quality paper, which is perfect for Gina Soden's brightly coloured and textured images. Fine Art Baryta paper has a similar foundation to that used in the past in traditional silver fibre prints. The paper's unique glossy Baryta surface lends itself perfectly to saturated colour images. Edition of 10 with 2 A/P's. Your print is produced by one of London's best printers. Gina Soden will then personally proof and check the artwork. It will then be packaged and rolled in a tube sent by courier. Size includes 2cm border so it is ready for framing. With your artwork there will be a signed & numbered certificate of authenticity. This can be affixed to the back of the print when framed.

At the heart of my photography is a preoccupation with abandoned structures and locations. Traveling widely to undisclosed sites throughout Europe, I explore the boundaries of beauty, decay, nostalgia and neglect. The genesis of each of my pieces is often the unique architectural character of each location, heightened by their painfully slow transformation after years of abandonment. Kate Bryan; 2012 "​Rather than taking a documentary approach, Soden breathes a sense of life into the scenes, hinting at narrative with studied compositions. Characteristically each image has a distinctly painterly aesthetic, side stepping the tendency that photography has for observational and distanced looking. Soden’s approach is lyrical and directs the viewer to explore the concepts of time and memory. The compositions feature derelict asylums, long since closed schools, ex-military compounds and famous city power stations in various stages of decay. The results are striking and poignant, at once both edgy in their contemporary aesthetic and nostalgic in their ruinous beauty. The work is underscored by the potential controversy of gaining unlicensed access to the out of bounds areas. Every image is a product of a journey, referring both to the physical demands of gaining entry and to the passing of time which is evident in the abandoned locations. Like the Romantic poets before her, Soden offers room to reflect on more romantic notions of beauty and a sense of calmness despite collapse and structural devastation"
