Giclée Reproduction on Museum Grade Paper, Unframed

042B from the Paul Kenton / 365 project, this print is part of a limited edition collection of 365 editions.

There always has to be a focal point within a painting, whether that be a shaft of light, a movement or a unique detail. Whenever Paul is creating a new piece, he thinks about what might engage and speak to the viewer. What makes this piece interesting to Paul is the shaft of light hitting the warm hues of the tram and taxi, contrasting perfectly against the greys of the tarmac and buildings. Subtle sparkles of light are reflected on the tram lines, giving this piece a wonderful luminosity throughout.

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.
