Giclée pronounced gee-clay, is based on the French technical term gicleur, meaning a jet or nozzle, and the associated verb gicler to spray, spout or squirt. Printmaker Jack Duganne coined the name Giclée in 1991 and it is today used to describe fine art printing using pigment based, archival quality inks, created using high quality printers. For this exhibition artists were invited to consider and to expand upon their use of Giclée printing wherever it was normally situated within their practice or within their thoughts with no conceptual restrictions or obstacles.
