Absolutely beautiful! The light from the candle reflects on the copper. Just love these so much and have received so many compliments. A very classy addition to my covered porch.

I have four pieces of your art in my bathroom, and this one will complete my walls. It's perfect with great colors. I love the little handle on one of the panels. Thanks, Nancy

About

Paul Rung Studio

Paul Rung Studio evolved out of Paul Rung Photography, Inc. which provided Still Life and Product Photography to Design and Advertising clients in Chicago for over 20 years. Paul specialized in product and still life photography for Ad Agencies, Corporate Clients, Design Firms and Package Designers. Some of his clients included H20 Plus, Jim Beam, Unilever, Tropicana, Craftsmen, ABN Amro and many more. As time went on he started making metal and copper frames to display some of his fine art photography.
"Initially I just made things for fun as a diversion from my day to day commercial assignments. I had big sheets of metal and copper at my studio that I had used as backgrounds for some of my assignment work. I started playing around with painting on metal, grinding it, treating it with various chemicals, all of this with photography in mind. Slowly the things I'm making now began to take shape. I started selling some of the frames in galleries to be used as mirror frames. The Wicker Park and Bucktown neighborhoods of Chicago had a lot of independent galleries and and a strong artist community at that time. I was encouraged by quick sales and this new creative outlet I had discovered. Working with wood, metal copper and glass was a much less restrictive creative process than I was used to so after over 25 years of doing only photography and living in the city, I decided to start working and living in a different way.” Paul now has work in South Africa, Europe, Mexico, South America, Canada, Hawaii, Australia and all over the United States. He lives and works In Caledonia, Illinois about 70 miles northwest of Chicago.
