PrintWeek Awards 2013 Fine Art Printer of the Year - Pureprint Group
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
It may have been Franz West's A Man with a Ball or maybe it was Miles Aldridge's Carousel that spun its magic to help Pureprint win in a category it has almost made its own. <br><br>Category sponsor: Denmaur
The latter is a limited edition of 180 images comprising a clamshell box and a set of 34 leaves including 32 facsimile reproductions of the photographer’s work printed using a combination of litho and screen. This gave a high-value, fine-art feel that rubbed off on the judges: "Unquestionably the clear winner in this category, the quality of each sample supplied shone though." The images were printed litho in four colours with an overall gloss coating. The majority of the photographic leaves also have a super matt special colour border, each colour being a unique ink mix and almost left the judges speechless, but not quite: "simply stunning."

The meticulous pen and ink details of Sergio Cruz-Duran can be reproduced using only the best equipment and expertise of application. Many giclée printers continue to pursue evolving digital photographic methods, but not Art4site in Ashford, Kent. Use of trusted flatbed scanning technology helped it do justice to Cruz-Duran and this award category in one elegant stroke.
