(1) pure silver, 2018 canada silver maple leaf 1 oz 1ea. Without any paints, only toned silver. Author Gump is an artist with a smile and a positive mind. He is a former scientist majoring in analytical chemistry, with creative abilities and great insight. He scientifically researched TMA (toned metal art) and established various techniques to utilize this phenomenon as art.
He creates works with his own technique of toning metals such as silver, copper, and stainless steel, and has artistic inspiration. He does not use any pigments or dyes in the creation of this artwork. Comparing his hand-made works to general toning works, they are distinctly different.
All of his toned works reflect the artist's will and spirit, and are clean and beautiful. He has been active in Korea for several years. He is active on Korea's largest portal, Naver, and famous Korean precious metal collectors know his name and works.
(NAVER cafe name: silver factory). He creates another beauty by geometrically arranging variously toned silver coins or metal pieces. The arrangement of units revealed in his work reflects the principles of the microscopic world. In particular, the orbital function and motion of atoms or molecules, and the quantum properties of pure single-crystal objects are artistically reinterpreted and reflected in the work. He named the art of making works by toning metal TMA (Toned Metal Art) and defined it as a part of quantum art.
This new art is just getting started. Gump's name will shine like famous painters in the past. Lastly, I would like to tell you his philosophy left behind.
Although some collectors place a high value on naturally toned coins and silverware, they are not the result of an artistic activity. Artwork must reflect the will and action of the artist. We do not accept return. Thank you for your understanding.
