Canvas print edition – 100

The close up detail of this clam resembles an ethereal flow within some giant canyon. Clams lie among the shallows of coral reefs all around the world. Basking in the sun they absorb energy from sunlight, this energy feeds the algae that lives within the mantle of the clam and gives the amazing colours seen here. These colours vary dependent on the algae that is present in that region. Giant clams can be found in Ningaloo Reef and right across the top of Australia as well as out into Indonesia and the Pacific Islands.

Limited Edition Canvas Print.

The latest advances in technology allow these images to be printed using high quality pigment ink onto archival grade canvas. We believe this process has an archival permanence far higher than any traditional form of photographic enlargement with the minimum life rated to be in excess of 75 years. Each limited edition from the collection is printed individually, only as of when it is ordered by the client. After sealing to increase the archival properties of the print and then subsequent stretching over a quality timber frame, it is personally checked and approved by me before it is signed and numbered into its edition.

A signed authenticity certificate will come with each limited edition and contains additional information about the image. Print editions for the images currently within the collection are limited to either fifty, seventy five or one hundred prints, depending on the image. Once each edition of an image is sold out, a small proof run will be released and then it will not be printed again as a canvas.

The canvas sizes priced on the website are my most popular but should you require something larger, in between, or even a slightly different ratio, please contact us to discuss this.

Open Edition Matted Print.

Using the exact same pigment inks as the canvas prints, these are printed onto either archival grade matte photo paper or photo rag, depending on the size of the print. Each comes complete with archival off-white mat-board plus a backing board, so that they are ready to frame and it is signed and dated with the year that the photograph was taken.

Ocean Block. (new version)

A contemporary take on the traditional block mounted print. Each timber block is created and painted by us at the gallery with a hand painted blue washed finish.
The new version of the print laminate now features a micro-weave texture with superior adhesion, improved edge finish and a scratch resistant satin top laminate, in essence it resembles a mini canvas look and feel to the image surface.
They can be purchased on their own or as a set of prints and can be displayed free-standing or hung from a single screw or nail. The perfect choice for a modern clean look but equally at home in a traditional setting, these blocks are the simple and cost effective way to purchase a Glen Cowans’ print without needing to factor in the cost of framing as for the matted prints.
