GAIL CATHLIN
Gail Catlin is the first artist in the world to exploit Liquid Crystal as the basis for her artistic creation. This highly sensitive, scientific, substance responds immediately to changing intensities of temperature and light with dramatic shifts in colour, reflectivity and sheen. Thereby it has enabled Gail to create a constantly changing, live pictorial surface. Its dynamic chromatic and luminary mutations inject added visual drama and excitement to the artists chosen themes - the life of the isolated African desert, the burning sun, the landscape, the huge variety of wildlife and the endless cycles of hunting, killing and devouring.

The inescapable power and authority of Catlin's work generated her a reputation as one of South Africa's most nimble and inventive technical innovators, and most vibrantly expressive artists. Her work is represented in all the major public art museums and corporate collections in South Africa, and the artist has been invited to exhibit in France, Russia, England, German and America.

The Giclée Print
Printed on specially coated cotton paper with light-fast inks, Giclée prints have all the continuous tone characteristics and color saturation of an original artwork. Although the print is the result of a digital process, the visual resolution can be high enough to obscure the presence of any "digital signature". For collectors, Giclée prints are a viable and attractive alternative to other printing processes that offer an aesthetic quality that is uniquely their own.

The Paper
The paper used for this collection is an acid-free 310 gm cotton based stock, coated with a receptor layer formulated to accept inking with minimum bleed. It is made in Germany by Hahnemuhle.

The Inks
Permanence issues are paramount in producing collectable fine art prints. A pigment inkset is used, which has been tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research to last in excess of 100 years before any noticeable changes start taking place. To ensure longest print life it is recommended that prints be displayed behind glass and out of direct sunlight.
