EuropaGiclée on Canvas by Marion Perlet
About this Artwork
Giclée + Other Art Terms
Giclée: From the French verb gicler, meaning, “to spray.” It is pronounced “zhee-clay”. The giclée process uses an incredibly accurate computer-controlled jet to apply ink to watercolor paper, canvas or etching paper. These unique jets are able to vary the width of the ink stream to as small as 1/100th the width of human hair. Giclées have a higher resolution than offset lithographs and the dynamic color range is greater than serigraph. Giclée reproductions are used to produce museum quality, fine art reproductions. In the art world it is generally regarded as the highest quality reproduction available.
Marion's paintings range from naïve representations of great charm and simplicity to visceral symbolist works that tap the deeper eastern religions and the mysterious nature of the creative process.
Whether her canvasses are small and delicate or large and powerful, they are marked by a richness of colour and a subtlety of texture that vibrates.
Marion, a Munich-born, naturalized Canadian, has made San Miguel her home since 1992. She has had over forty solo shows in Canada and México since her first exhibition in Montreal at the age 22. Her most recent shows were at the Canadian Embassy in México City, El Instituto Allende and Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende and the Museo Iconografico del Quijote in Guanajuato.
