The Jaya Gallery specializes in limited contemporary art editions. We handpick our artists who we collaborate with in producing editions. Our mission is to spread the works of established and emerging artists through curated print editions, exhibitions, and online interviews. Art collectors can look forward to a selection of valuable, high quality hand-signed prints. The Jaya Gallery issues a certificate to guarantee that these works are originals, if they are not signed directly on the artwork. We want to support the expansion and reinvention of traditional disciplines of making art, with our focus lying on archival pigment prints.
All of our limited editions are printed on acid free and high-end fine art paper, such as Photo Rag 308g from Hahnemühle. Our artists are directly involved in the process, after proofing the artwork they sign and number it. The print method is Giclée, also known as archival pigment printing. A digital fine art technique where pigment ink and inkjet printers is used to create an age resistant, authentic reproduction. We also produce silkscreens, an old method from the 1960s, where one color is printed at a time. All prints are packed in a protective cardboard tube and shipped with tracking number and insurance.
An edition refers to those prints pulled from the same source and inked in the same way thereby referring to a set of the same image. Even though the prints are not unique prints, they are each an original fine art print. The word edition is not a synonym for print. Editions exclude proofs, which are the prints retained by the artist, printers and publisher. Since a fine art print’s value in the marketplace is based partly on how many others there are, the practice of limiting editions permits fine art prints to increase in value like other types of art.
