On October 1, 1909 the Makapuʻu Lighthouse shone for the first time. Its twelve foot tall hyper-radiant lens is the largest in the world. Artist Patrick Ching has a longtime relationship with lighthouses. In the 1980’s and 90’s, he lived at the Kīlauea Point Lighthouse on Kauaʻi before moving to Waimānalo town in 1992. At Waimānalo, he spends many of his mornings surfing the bay below the Makapuʻu Lighthouse or running the path that overlooks it.

 

MATTED PRINTS

The mat is the decorative border on the outside of the actual print. Matted prints are measured by outside matte dimensions available in 8"x10", 11"x14", and 16"x20" - fitting standard sized frames.

 

FULL-SIZE PRINTS

Full-size prints extend to the full dimensions of 8”x10”, 11x14” or 16”x20” (or equivalent square inches in the case of narrow artwork). There is no mat border, so the picture itself is larger than a matted print.

 

Matted and Full-Size prints come in clear protective sleeves with foam core backings.

 

GICLÉE

Giclée, pronounced zhee-klay, is a French word meaning “fine spray”. Giclée are the finest quality reproductions printed on canvas then varnished with a durable protective coating. They can be stretched and framed like an original painting, and need no glass covering. Mine are sent rolled and ready for framing.

 

You may inquire about gallery wrap giclée, which add an extra 1-5/8" all around with the image mirrored edge. Gallery wrap giclée cost 20% more than standard giclée, and can be stretched at a frame shop near you as a contemporary option to framing.
