325 from the Paul Kenton / 365 project, this print is part of a limited edition collection of 365 editions.

Giclée Print Quality

Giclée (zhee-clay) is a French term, in this case meaning “spray of ink”. A giclée is a means of reproducing an original. It is not an original graphic but a fine quality reproduction print. Giclée prints render deep, saturated colours and have a beautiful painterly quality that retains minute detail, subtle tints and blends. The 365 prints are reproduced on high quality, museum grade papers, using premium light fast inks.

The production of a giclée print is not an automatic process. The human touch is critical in several phases of the giclée process. First the giclée prints began as Paul’s original art. Second the work was photographed in studio conditions using a Leica M240 50mb camera. Each artwork was then meticulously colour corrected. That colour correction requires an experienced eye and touch in making the proper adjustments in tone, contrast, sharpness and other factors to produce a print that faithfully reproduces the original. Third, in matching the computer image with the final print, a practised eye must make adjustments for the best results. And last, the printer itself needs steady attention to produce consistent, quality results. In short, the human hand is part of every step of the giclée process, with Paul himself overseeing each one. Indeed, the difference between a quality giclée print and one that is not, lies almost entirely in the human involvement and craftsmanship.

Print Collection Sets

A series of Limited Edition Print Collection Sets from Paul's 365 Project.

Specially curated by Paul, the artworks within each set have been carefully selected to complement each other and make a statement when hung together as a group.

You might also enjoy these other New York paintings from Paul's 365 Project. This was a year-long journey exploring a different range of mediums & working at sizes often smaller, than with his studio pieces. In many cases these formed the studies behind the larger studio works.
