Canvas print edition – 100

It is somewhat of an ethereal moment when a large whaleshark first cruises underneath you. The amazing spot pattern moves like a celestial galaxy cruising through the deep blue, then it is the shape and massive size that gathers your attention, these truly are beautiful titans of the deep. Totally harmless, they feed on plankton and small fish. Which is good to know when you see one coming towards you with a mouth seemingly large enough to swallow you whole. Whalesharks inhabit tropical and warm-temperate seas worldwide and in Australia they frequent Ningaloo Reef on the west coast.

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.
