The advanced quality of Giclee artwork reproduction makes it the top choice over older, inferior techniques. With almost total control over the final product, Giclee printing gives artists more freedom than ever before. Individual requirements can easily be accommodated for each client/buyer, including changes in size, color, what the image is printed on, and alterations within the image itself.
When printed on canvas, the print can be beautifully stretched, varnished, textured, or gallery wrapped – which is a very popular choice among artists recently. When printed on paper, a client/buyer has the choice of which type is used with the option of varnishing or deckling. All finished pieces resemble the original work so closely that they often look identical and are hard to distinguish from one another.
We gladly consult and educate each of our clients/buyers about the Giclee industry, fine art publishing, and copyright laws. Certificates of authenticity are supplied to our clients/buyers to ensure that their print is of the highest quality. We also help artists in putting their work out there and increasing sales by connecting them with galleries and by featuring their work in our own fine art Giclee gallery website.
ELENA FLEROVA Historical Romantic. The works of internationally honored artist, Elena Flerova range from remarkably insightful portraits that capture the spirit of her subjects to large-scale monoprint paintings and oils. They also include wall murals, screens and other interior decoration for private residences and public buildings. All of them evoke the mystique, essence and sweep of historical and religious events and fables.
Born in Moscow, USSR, in 1943, Flerova graduated with honors from the prestigious Surikov Fine Arts Institute in 1969. Her top graduate standing won her a scholarship to the National Academy of Fine Arts, an exclusive school admitting only a limited number of exceptionally gifted artists. Both institutions assisted Elena in maturing her great talent and establishing authentic academic skills. Combined with her inherent ability to create sophisticated compositions, these skills empowered Elena Flerova to devise unique artwork.
The avenue in which the artist uses light and shadow, color and composition equates her with old European masters. All these properties are efficiently used by Elena for conveying both mood and movement in her paintings. At the same time, her exceptional mastery in providing the presence of vibrating air illumination relates her with more recent impressionists. The artist refrains from any preparatory sketches and starts working directly with brush and canvas. This freedom distinguishes her in a favorable way from the majority of contemporary realists working in a less dynamic manner.
Flerova is a master monoprint painter as well as an award-winning book and magazine illustrator, watercolorist and etcher. In the tradition of old masters, and unlike typical monoprint artists, Elena forges jeweler-like results by refining her work following the transfer. Meticulous details sharpened by intense color and provocative lighting create masterftil three-dimensional illusion.
Over the course of her professional career, Elena Flerova has been recognized as an exceptional talent. She has had numerous one person shows in Europe and North America. Her works have been shown in more than 80 national and international exhibitions and won numerous awards and honors. Paintings by Elena Flerova are held in many private collections in the United States and abroad. Brother Richard G. Cannuli, O.S.A.
