Canvas print edition – 100

Sabella are a species of filter feeders that live on the sea bed and among coral reefs. The spiral pattern created by the filter feeding fronds of these creatures is a classic example of mathematics defining the beauty within nature. This spiral can be explained as a sequence of Fibonacci numbers that create an ever expanding ratio often referred to as the golden ratio, it is the most recurring ratio within nature everywhere and is considered the most pleasing ratio to the human eye. Photographing these tiny wonders that are about 3-4 centimeters across is challenging as once they sense the flash from your camera they withdraw quicker than the blink of an eye. Photographed at the top of Exmouth Gulf, near Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia.

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 matt
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.

A contemporary take on the traditional block mounted print. Each timber block is shaped and painted by us at
the gallery with a blue washed finish before applying the archival print complete with gloss laminate to the
front of the block.

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.

Whilst we do carry some stock most canvas prints are printed only upon ordering, please allow up to two
weeks before shipment for printing, sealing and stretching of your print.
