The Norse Church
The Norse Church
Christianity came to Iceland a little over 1,000 years ago, but before that happened, churches like this would have been filled with worshippers of Thor, Odin, Frigg, and other Norse gods. A recent resurgence has brought this ancient religion back into the light recently, represented here by a horse (a prevalent symbol of Nordic mythology) coming upon a Nordic Church in the forest.
All of our prints are made using a high-quality Giclee printer. We do a limited run on each painting, and each piece is numbered and signed.
What is Giclee? The term"giclee print" connotes an elevation in printmaking technology. Images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. The giclee printing process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction.
Giclee prints are created typically using professional 8-Color to 12-Color ink-jet printers. Among the manufacturers of these printers are vanguards such as Epson, MacDermid Colorspan, & Hewlett-Packard. These modern technology printers are capable of producing incredibly detailed prints for both the fine art and photographic markets. Giclee prints are sometimes referred to as Iris prints, which are 4-Color ink-jet prints from a printer pioneered in the late 1970s by Iris Graphics.
Numerous examples of giclee prints can be found in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Chelsea Galleries. Recent auctions of giclee prints have fetched $10,800 for Annie Leibovitz, $9,600 for Chuck Close, and $22,800 for Wolfgang Tillmans.
