I turned my phone off, put up an automatic 'out of office’ reply on my email, withdrew from social media, friends, family and colleagues, in order to focus solely on my art and allow myself time to explore without distraction or outside influence.

Here on Youtube, I hope to keep making these video shorts, or ‘impressions’ , on the collection because I find them enjoyable, they reveal things, and most importantly, they offer the paintings a way to communicate with me and you.

THE AMAZING ART OF PAINTING RESTORATION

Have you ever seen how paintings are restored and conserved? Watch this amazing and interesting compilation showing the work process of Julian Baumgartner. Baumgartner Fine Art Restoration is currently the oldest conservation studio in Chicago. It was founded in 1978 by R. Agass Baumgartner. Agass' son, Julian, started learning the art of restoration in 2000 when he was studying painting and printmaking at Purchase College, SUNY. Julian took over responsibility for running business, and in mid-2011 took full ownership and oversight of the restoration company. He decided to keep things small and to make sure that the artworks would only ever be handled by a couple of people. Following his father's example, Julian feels that the best results can be achieved by fostering a personal relationship with every client and artwork. Baumgartner Fine Art Restoration has worked with major corporations and governmental organizations, but Julian is especially proud of its strong relationships with small museums, universities, art galleries, art dealers, collectors and private clients. The first step in the process is to view the artworks, preferably in the studio, with the clients present. If that doesn’t prove possible, photos can be emailed or uploaded. After that a full examination of the artworks is performed. This includes assessing the condition of the artworks and testing the materials that will guide the conservation process. Establishing a comprehensive understanding of each artwork is necessary as no two are the same, and all techniques and materials are tailored to the artwork. After his conservation plan is approved by the client, he begins cleaning. He typically starts by cleaning off old varnish. Sometimes, he patches any holes or tears in the canvas. The most important part, and his favorite, is retouching. Some artworks may be completed in as little as one week, while others require several weeks due to the complex nature of the conservation issues at play. Specific time lines and completion dates can be accommodated if required.
