Fine Art Triptych by Hudson Valley Giclee and Bruce Bleach

This corporate fine art triptych is another colorful collaboration between Jeff Fina of Hudson Valley Giclee and abstract fine artist Bruce Bleach. The pair often team up to bring unique fine art to corporate and other environments.

In this case, Bleach created the overall design, which Fina tweaked in Photoshop and prepared for printing. Fina printed the image on LexJet Sunset Select Matte Canvas and coated it with Sunset Satin Coating.

Fine Art Canvas Printing“Red and blue are very hard to reproduce, but the red on this canvas is as deep a red as you can get. You typically can’t hit colors like that with canvas since it doesn’t have as wide a color gamut as Sunset photo papers, but the combination of this canvas with the coating really brought out the richness of the colors,” says Fina. “I like LexJet Sunset Canvas much better than any other canvas. It’s easier to work with, easier to wrap and the color gamut is better.”

Once printed and coated, the piece was glued to wood and Bleach cut it out along the lines that Fina included when he prepared the file for print. Bleach also added scored and colored pieces of metal that give the piece more shine and relief, complementing the overall look of the design.

“A lot of artists, and especially Bruce, want to experiment beyond just printing, so Sunset Select Matte Canvas is a really good medium to meet their need to experiment because it’s also durable and easy to finish, especially with the Sunset Coating,” says Fina. “I know someone who left his canvas with the Sunset coating in the snow. I’m not sure why or how it got there, but the canvas was still perfect after that and he never thought in his wildest dreams that would ever happen. So, when you cut around the canvas, there’s no damage to it at all because of the quality of the canvas and the coating.”
