When Feodor first met Bob Tursack, the Founder of Brilliant Studio, he knew he had come across a true craftsman, as well as an exceptional artistic collaborator. The two share a deep appreciation for photography as an art form, as well as a drive to seek out and utilize new technologies to assist them in delivering products of the highest quality.
Each print from the Feo Pitcairn galleries is produced individually, using the Giclèe (zee-clay) process. This process was developed in the early nineties out of a desire to blend newer technologies with an old-world craft for the purpose of creating lasting fine-art prints. As a result, Brilliant Studio has the ability to produce prints with tremendous archival qualities without sacrificing image fidelity. Before any image goes to press, Feo works with Bob and his team to determine the best possible formula for conveying his vision as the artist. The image is then adjusted and/or enhanced and sent to press.
Because of their fine papers, inks and extraordinary quality, Giclèes are not unlike original works of art. They must be handled with care. Their surfaces have a finish that helps to protect them, but it is best to avoid unnecessary or rough handling. The prints are very fragile and fingerprints can ruin your investment. When framing, do not touch the image with tools, oils or moisture. To be safe, let an experienced framer handle the fine print. The general rule is to handle them like pastels or watercolors. They will last several generations with skillful consideration.
