We invite you and your friends to take part in a one-of-a-kind artistic experience at Castle Elvira. For a minimum of three nights, you will have the unique opportunity to live with artists Harvey B-Brown & David Scheinmann whilst you help create your own Adored & Adorned portrait. Part painting, photography, collage and digital art, these unique meta portraits are precious heirlooms that celebrate a moment of history.
Starting by taking photographs, the images are adorned using materials and techniques that tell a story about the person while playfully referring to familiar contemporary iconography. Photographic prints are transformed into three dimensions using paints, inks, collage and sculptural techniques and then further augmented with post production technology. Whilst you enjoy your stay at Castle Elvira, we encourage you and your guests to collect mementos and memorabilia to become a part of your portrait.
