Jurassic Wave limited edition giclée print is available in 2 sizes. Signed, numbered and dated. With a 2 cm border.
Jurassic Wave fine art print is taken from an original oil painting which was inspired by Devon’s coastline. It is a hugely diverse and beautiful landscape underpinned by incredible geology of global importance. In 2001 it was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for the outstanding universal value of its rocks, fossils and landforms. It remains England’s only natural World Heritage Site.
The Jurassic Coast begins at Orcombe Point in Exmouth, Devon, and continues for 95 miles to Old Harry Rocks, near Swanage, Dorset. This span takes in four distinct geographic regions – East Devon, West Dorset, Weymouth & Portland and Purbeck – each containing their own iconic towns, villages and natural landscapes.
The word Giclée (“g-clay”),
is derived from the French verb gicler meaning “to squirt or spray”. Giclee, is used to describe a fine art digital printing process combining pigment based inks with high quality archival quality paper. This achieves Giclée prints of superior archival quality, light fastness and stability.
I am a Teignmouth based artist and live close to the ocean and Dartmoor. This proximity to the South West Coast and the wild untamed landscape of the moor has influenced my recent work. Water is an ever-changing element that I find fascinating. In my oil paintings I aim to invoke an immersive feeling. I want to highlight the rapidly shifting colours of water from deep blue almost black to pale green nearly white. Following the initial painting and drying process I may apply glazes of oil paint to further enrich the surface of my work. I often return to the work of Kurt Jackson and Peter Doig for inspiration and a sense of place.
