About Handpainted Gallery-Wrapped Canvases
Handpainted gallery-wrapped canvases have an artistic contemporary look with wonderful depth and texture. After collaborating with the artist to develop a new piece of art, an original painting is created. The original artwork is reproduced through scanning to retrieve a digital file which is then printed onto artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas with large-format printers. Once the image has been printed on canvas, the artist individually hand paints the entire image or embellishes parts of the image for highlight and effect bringing the original image to life with a highly texturized finish. Through this process of hand painting, each individual print becomes an oil or acrylic painting with the hand touch and "look" of the original painting and can be reproduced by the artist in quantities as required. Each is truly one-of-a-kind with slight variations from the original which only add to its charm. The Phoenix Collection lists these paintings as "handpainted" to differentiate between original paintings where only one is produced; they are often referred to also as original paintings or art reproductions in other venues.
The finished canvas is treated with a clear UV-protectant coating which inhibits the damaging effects of ultraviolet light from the sun and flouorescent lighting, dust and humidity. It is then stretched, the edges pulled down around a sturdy wooden framework 1.5" or 2" deep, securely attached and ready to hang. (Gallery-wrapped indicates that the handpainted image extends or continues to the edges of the canvas that is then wrapped and secured over the frame.) To care for your canvas, simply use a very soft cloth or feather duster to lightly dust the surface, as required.
