A2 Fine Art Giclee Print on Hahnemuhle German Etching 310gsm. (594 x 841mm/ 23.4 x 33.1inch)
A heavy-duty paper with a more textured finish than Photorag, a velvety matt surface, and a warm white hue with traits of a traditional artist board — reproduces painterly images, lithographs and pastels superbly. Giclee prints are often known in exhibitions as archival pigment prints, this term is increasingly becoming the standard term used in the art world. The word Giclée ("gee-clay"), is based on the French verb gicler which means "to squirt or spray” and was originally coined by printmaker Jack Duganne in 1991. Giclée printing is a fine art digital printing method using specialist archival pigment inks and acid-free papers; creating gallery-quality inkjet prints with excellent depth of colour, longevity and stability. The print process involves squirting microscopic dots of pigment ink onto high-quality fine art or photographic papers using sophisticated high-end inkjet printers with exceptional accuracy, wide tonal range and colour gamut. Studies have shown that Giclee Prints colour vividness can last in excess of 200 years with tests by independent bodies such as Wilhelm Research and printer manufacturers such as Epson. This gives assurance to collectors and art buyers of this type of printing method.
Original Painting was made with oil & dye on cartridge paper.
'BORN FROM ANOTHER'
The art was created between August - December 2020. The name of this exhibition was founded through the process of creating the paintings on paper. Dyes were mixed with oil (olive or rapeseed) then poured, dripped, flicked, dabbed, marked in various ways onto layers of thick cartridge paper.
The pigments and oil soaked through the first layer, bleeding onto the papers behind. This created different shades, shapes, imprints all born from the first. The pieces are connected in pairs or triptych's and then individually re worked making each piece unique and sometimes very different from the first.

Listen to the call of your spirit
Please handle with care and hang painting out of the light. Try not to hang pictures directly opposite large windows as sunlight fades colours and discolours paper. Special UV-coated glass can help to slow this down. The Fine Art Trade Guild has set industry-wide standards for printing and framing materials. Ask your framer about the ways in which you can preserve your artwork for the long-term. Avoid heat, ideally pictures should not be hung above radiators. Extreme or rapid changes in temperature cause paper and wood to dry out and adhesives to fail. Beware of damp, it can cause pictures to ripple. Damp also encourages fungal growth - likely to show as brown stains. Conservation framing can slow these effects, but it is always best to avoid hanging framed pictures in humid conditions. Allow six months before hanging pictures on newly plastered walls.
