About the Shibui Series:
“As a human being living in the 21st Century I believe that we need to acknowledge our current psychological dependency on technology. This smart phone, social media and immediate gratification mindset, is leading us to an unsatisfied mental state where more and faster is expected by everyone at all times, creating constant stress.
I believe that to counteract this learned excellence at technical multi-tasking, we should search for simplicity in daily life based on the Japanese idea of shibui, where elements and experiences are appreciated by their own virtues and simplicity is devoid of the unnecessary. With this in mind I create works that are deconstructed to very basic visual elements aiming to stimulate the limbic brain – the part that has no capacity for language but, instead, controls emotions and behavior."
- Georges Le Chevallier
*Giclée - A digital printing method that is based on the following criteria: a) The quality of the paper (it has to be acid free and consist of a 100% cotton or rag base) b) The document resolution (300 dots per inch) c) The quality of the printer.
For our Giclée prints we use an Epson Sure Color P800SE, which uses pigment-based inks. Pigment-based inks have a longer life span that can last around 200 years without significant fading. This specific printer holds 9 color ink cartridges as the more inks used, the more sophisticated the color range available on the final print.
**Limited Edition- is an artwork that is produced in an identical way a set number of times.
