Akiane's Giclee Prints on Canvas
What is a Giclée
A Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) refers to both a category of collectible fine art similar to lithographs and serigraphs, as well as a type of digitally created fine art print. A Giclée reproduction is the highest quality print available in the fine art world today. You will find Giclee’s of the great master’s paintings displayed at the finest art galleries across the USA. These include The Metropolitan Museum, New York, Los Angeles County Museum, Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and many others.
About Giclée Printing
The Giclée process is accomplished through the digital printing process utilizing a printer that applies millions of microscopic droplets of archival ink per second to the canvas which creates prints of museum quality that cannot be duplicated by any other printing technique. The resulting image beautifully captures the subtle brushwork, color and emotion of Akiane’s original paintings. This process produces exceptional museum quality prints with colors which are indistinguishable from the original!
Akiane’s Art Approval Process
In order to insure perfect color prints, Akiane oversees the production process regarding color, contrast, blending and focus accuracy. After one of Akiane’s original paintings is reproduced as a Giclee’s the canvas is first dried, then coated for durability – next it is ready for Akiane’s initial inspection called the “artist proof”. Proofing often takes Akiane weeks, months and, in a few cases, years of working with her master printer to reproduce a Giclée that is an accurate representation of the original! Once she has given her final approval she signs the “Artist Proof” thus authorizing reproductions of the original paintings as needed for our collectors, galleries and museums.
Depending on your personal preferences there are several options available for you to purchase
Akiane is involved with each piece of art that is sold and often meeting with the collectors personally. Before shipping Akiane makes a final inspection, if approved, she then hand signs and numbers the limited edition before shipping to collectors.
Akiane has a mission
Akiane says “I have been blessed by God for one reason and one reason only and that is to help others.” We at Art & SoulWorks share Akiane’s mission to help others by donating a portion our proceeds from our products sales to charity.
