The Giclee technique is not a screen print, as no screens are involved. The prints therefore have a higher apparent resolution than lithographs. It is a sophisticated, fine art production utilizing the highest resolution digital printers. The dynamic color range is similar to a serigraph.
In the Giclee process is a fine stream of ink, more than four million droplets per second, is sprayed onto archival canvas. The result is similar to but much finer than air brush techniques. Each canvas is carefully hand mounted on a drum that rotates during the printing process. Exact calculations of hue, value and density direct the four-inked nozzles. The method creates a combination of 512 chromatic changes resulting in over three million possible colors of highly saturated, nontoxic water based inks. The process offers a protective coating to ensure quality standards for the discriminating art collector.
The Giclee process has gained wide acceptance from artists the caliber of David Hockney and Robert Rauschenberg and major institutions such as the Chicago Art Institute and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
The Giclee print displays a full color spectrum and captures every fine distinction of Ms. Brookman's original paintings.
