Artist: Jones and Shimlock Title: Sea Star on Sea Squirts Colony Size: 24" x 36" Select additional sizes, options, and substrate mediums from the drop down box above Edition: Artist Plate Signed and Numbered, Limited to 450 Medium: Giclée: 100% Cotton Canvas, Fine Art Textured Paper Or Bamboo Paper About the Art: Giclée (pronounced zhee-clay) is a french word meaning 'to spray.' The giclée is a high quality fine art print created from a digital file. The image is printed by applying millions of microscopic ink droplets directly to the canvas or paper. This technique delivers sharp details and a wide range of vibrant colors, while the printed dot pattern typically visible in a poster or a canvas transfer is eliminated completely.
Our giclée prints are museum quality and are equal to the giclée prints of contemporary artists found in major museum collections around the world. Our giclées are not only vivid, detailed and accurate prints, but are also durable and fully archivable artworks. Inks are independently tested to archive in excess of 50 years. Their resistance to fading and long lifespan make the giclée a sure choice for any fine art collector.
Our printing technology utilizes more expensive aqueous (water-based) inks instead of solvent inks producing superior prints that are better for the environment and the health of our employees.
About the Art: One of life's most important rules: choose your dreams carefully because they just might become reality. Thirty years ago, Burt Jones and Maurine Shimlock were young, awestruck divers who left Texas because they loved the ocean so much that they wanted to make a living photographing underwater. Jones and Shimlock's shared goals of traveling and diving the world's best coral reefs have guided them on an extraordinary journey. Using underwater photography as the vehicle to realize their dreams, they have spent most of our adult lives creating images of never-before-seen reefs. As they began to understand how different the wild places are and how so many people never experience this environment. Kneeling on a dot of beach beneath a full moon waiting for a nest of turtles to hatch, or rolling off a small boat and descending into the unexplored blue, Jones and Shimlock knew that they were photographing an event or animal that might never be seen again because it would simply cease to exist. Thus, their images are permanent records carefully composed to arouse the audience's curiosity about the beauty and complexity of life in the sea. Countless published photographs, articles, presentations, a dive guide, and a luxurious coffee table book have inspired many to appreciate Jones and Shimlock's visions of "the art in the animal."
