ABOUT CANVAS GICLÉE GALLERY WRAPS
I create fine art images from a photographs which have been artistically enhanced. The entire process is carried out locally, ensuring quality control. First, the image is rendered to a high resolution digital file. Next, it is printed on canvas, to make a giclée print. The term giclée refers to a special printing process that produces vibrant prints with a large format printer. The print must be:
-at least 300 DPI (dots per square inch) resolution
-printed on high quality, archival using pigment-based inks
-result in archival quality of at least 100 years
The images are printed by well-known Canadian photographer, Martin Kaspers, in Campbell River.
Then the canvases are mounted and stretched by the artist, Richard Farrington. The stretcher bars are made from the best grade of North American basswood, known for its stability, low resin and lignin content. The wood is kiln dried to a moisture content below 8% which will ensure that there will be no warp or shrinkage.
