Digital Archival Printing and Framing

Lightjet Digital Photographs

Océ LightJet® 430 is the machine/process that prints the artwork.

A laser exposes the digital image onto light sensitive paper a fraction of an inch at a time. The paper is then developed, fixed, and washed, like any high quality archival photograph.

Photographic Paper

Fuji CrystalArchive glossy paper is used for vibrant colours and pure whites with excellent image colour stability. The final image is a real archival photograph.

Image Detail

The LightJet process creates images with very sharp detail and nice dense colour areas. The image has trully continuous colour tone with 300 dots per inch detail that stands up to scrutiny through the loupe as well as the naked eye.

Giclee Digital Prints

A Giclee print is made with advanced inkjet technology, using lightfast, archival inks on archival quality watercolour paper or premium canvass.

Watercolour Paper

Archival cold pressed watercolour paper is used for this print. The final piece has the texture of the paper and a subtle warm tone.

Canvass

Premium, bright white canvass is a durable, archival medium with a soft canvass texture. Prints are available as rolled or stretched canvass.

Image Detail

The Giclee process is used for images that benefit from a matte texture. The result is rich, velvety colours not unlike the eye of a peacock feather. The image is printed at 200 dots per inch and has continuous colour tone when scrutinized by the naked eye.

Mounting and Framing

Regardless of the size of print or frame style chosen, any artwork bought framed will be mounted in an archival manner with acid free materials.

Composed from the front, the layers in the image sandwich are:

Standard glass is recommended because the texture of glare free glass interferes with the texture of the print and diminishes the appreciation of detail up close. Glare free glass is available upon request.


Artist Statement

The moment of ambiguity that precedes recognition in the process of seeing, the moment of discovery, is often more pleasurable than the final perception itself because of the rich possibility of being that it holds. Imagine seeing something out of the corner of your eye and, implausibly, being able to turn your head and focus on the initial, unarticulated form before the mind makes sense of the actual object seen. In my art I invoke and prolong this moment, letting the mind bathe in the freedom of uncertainty.

I am fascinated by the tangential activity of the mind as it resolves sensual input and intellectual ideas. I am interested in the psychology of sight, direct aesthetic experience, and models of human consciousness, and above all I want to make beautiful images.

The images may be based on photographs or scans of real objects such as plants or food that are then scrambled up in a kind of reversal of the act of recognition. The images are usually very brightly coloured, often have a sense of space, or the illusion of movement as colour fields shift weight visually. The form is often ambivalent, dreamlike, and strongly evocative of the quality of ideas on the edge of sleep or reason.
