Welcome to the world of my Fine Art Reproduction
Immerse yourself in the captivating journey of transforming my original paintings into exquisite fine art reproductions. It is a harmonious blend of science, artistry, and customer-centricity, meticulously crafted to capture the essence of the original piece.
A Symphony of Precision and Creativity
Creating a fine art reproduction is a delicate dance between the finest materials, cutting-edge technology, and the fusion of knowledge and creativity. I go beyond mere color-matching; my goal is to ensure that each reproduction evokes the same emotional resonance and visual impact as the original masterpiece.
Substrates, the canvas or paper on which the image is reproduced, serve as the foundation for my artistic endeavor. The inks or pigments we use bring life to the image, infusing it with vibrant colors and intricate details.
Secure Storage and Care
When my original paintings are not in use, they reside in a high-security, fire-proofed vault at my printing house. We understand the value and significance of each artwork entrusted to me, and I spare no effort in ensuring their utmost safety.
I believe in the importance of having access to the original painting for an extended period. This allows me to capture its essence through precise photography or scanning, resulting in digital files that undergo countless iterations of proofing and comparison until an impeccable match is achieved.
Mastering the Art of Color
The color technician expertly mounts the original painting, preparing it for the meticulous process of photography or scanning. In this intricate art form, the human touch plays a vital role. Alignment between the color technician, production manager, and me the artist is crucial, enabling us to communicate and achieve the perfect color match.
Capturing the Soul
Through the art of photography or scanning, we capture the essence of the painting. We understand that values, contrast, and color density are as significant as achieving precise color replication. My aim is to create a replicated image that invites your eyes to traverse its details, just as they would when beholding the original masterpiece.
The Artistry of Color Adjustment
My dedicated color technicians work closely with the captured digital file, meticulously altering it to closely mirror the original painting. He create a series of proofs, each bringing us closer to the true essence of the artwork. The most recent proof is continuously compared to the original painting by my printer's color technician, as well as myself, the artist.
Craftsmanship and Quality Assurance
Once the giclée on canvas emerges, it undergoes careful inspection, drying, and a final protective coating. Our discerning eyes meticulously scrutinize every detail before it is deemed ready for shipping, ensuring that only the highest quality reproductions grace your walls.
Unveiling the Giclée
The giclée, a remarkable form of fine art reproduction, merges technological advancements with the artist's vision. Originally pioneered by a group of Southern California artists in the mid-1980s, the term "Giclée" derives from two French words that signify "the spraying of ink." With the evolution of inkjet technology, we harness the potential of pigment-based inks, capable of producing over four million droplets per second, encompassing a vast spectrum of colors.
Elevating Reproduction Quality
The advent of modern inkjet technologies has ushered in a new era of giclée prints, boasting an expanded color gamut and unrivaled quality. The pigmented inks we employ undergo rigorous third-party testing, ensuring stability and longevity, allowing your cherished giclée to withstand the test of time for generations to come. Today, the quality of giclée prints rivals or even surpasses that of serigraphy.
Pristine Environment for Impeccable Reproductions
Within our giclée reproduction area, precision and cleanliness reign supreme. The staff maintain a meticulously clean environment to prevent any particles from adhering to the prints as they gracefully emerge from our advanced printing units. Their commitment to quality goes beyond technology; they create an atmosphere where perfection can flourish.
The Artistic Symphony Unfolds
With each giclée reproduction, a symphony of colors comes to life. Every individual print is meticulously crafted, with the printing process taking hours, depending on its size. Once the printing is complete, a protective UV coating is delicately applied, enhancing the durability and longevity of the artwork. My professional curators and color technicians meticulously inspect each reproduction, ensuring impeccable quality and color accuracy.
Preserving Beauty, Unveiling Splendor
Giclées can be reproduced on two exquisite substrates: canvas and paper. Paper giclées, reminiscent of the original painting, are best complemented with framing and glass, preserving their elegance. Regardless of the chosen substrate and framing style, our giclées deserve the same care and reverence as an original painting. I recommend cleaning them gently with a soft, dry cloth and hanging them away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
My Personal Touch
Upon the arrival of each giclée at my office, I personally conduct a final inspection, ensuring that every detail meets my exacting standards. Your satisfaction is my utmost priority, and I take great pride in delivering artwork that exceeds your expectations.
Certificates of Authenticity
I take great pride in the authenticity and exclusivity of each limited edition reproduction. Every reproduction in the edition is individually signed and numbered, except for the series of 1000, which is not numbered. To validate its authenticity, each reproduction is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, printed on acid-free paper. For open editions, a certified digital file serves as the proof of authenticity. To ensure its longevity and safekeeping, it is advisable to store the Certificate of Authenticity within the protective jacket of paper prints or securely attach it to the back of a limited edition reproduction, preserving its collectability.
