BIO JEANETTE GIBSON

JEANETTE GIBSON is a visual artist who blends a fine art background with a fascination for the alchemy of digital art and Artificial Intelligence. Her work, deeply rooted in between perception and reality (also a perceived construct), explores the intersection of the conceptual, expressive, and esoteric. Within her artistic universe, the veil parting perception and reality invites viewers on a journey that dissects perceptual boundaries:  bondage (enslavement, servitude, and subjection), discipline (the practice of self-subjection or training people to obey), dominance (dominion, mastery, and control), submission (yielding, consent, acceptance) and the tangible, visible embodiment (personification, incarnation, and manifestation) of those perceptions.

Jeanette’s artistic exploration is deeply informed by the rich tradition of talismanic objects, imbued with spiritual significance:

  • CONNECTION TO THE SPIRIT WORLD | Often seen as bridges to the spirit world, talismans ground and connect the owner to wisdom and protection.

  • HARNESSING SYMBOLIC POWER | Channeling positive and grounding energy to those who resonate with the work.

  • MANIFESTATION AND INTENTION | Creating a psychic shield that affirms, deflects, neutralizes, and embalms the nervous system.

  • THE RITUAL OF CREATION | The creation process in itself is a spiritual practice. By imbuing her digital and AI-assisted art with intention and focus during the creative process, Jeanette is channeling the healing energy of embodiment into each peace she creates.

  • REALITY AND PERCEPTION |  Traditionally, talismans blur the lines between the physical and spiritual realms. Jeanette’s exploration of this concept through digital and AI tools could be a way to question what we perceive as real and delve into the unseen forces that shape our world.

By incorporating these layers of spiritual significance from rich talismanic traditions, Jeanette elevates her art from the digital to the transcendent, inviting viewers to engage with deeper questions about themself and the universe.

FINE ART PRINT COLLECTIONS

The allure of owning a unique piece of art is undeniable. In the realm of fine art prints, limited editions offer a compelling option for collectors seeking a balance between affordability and exclusivity. But what exactly are limited edition prints, and how can you navigate this exciting collecting niche? Let’s delve into the world of limited edition prints!

THE SCARCITY FACTOR

WHAT MAKES LIMITED EDITION PRINTS SPECIAL?

Unlike open edition prints, which can be reproduced indefinitely, limited edition prints are created in a predetermined number, typically ranging from a few dozen to a few hundred. This limited availability creates a sense of scarcity, making each print more valuable than its open edition counterparts.

THE ARTIST’S TOUCH

THE IMPORTANCE OF AUTHENTICITY

The creation of a limited edition print often involves the artist’s direct involvement. They might oversee the printing process, ensuring the colors, details, and overall quality reflect their vision. Additionally, many limited edition prints are hand-signed and numbered by the artist, adding another layer of authenticity and collectability.

INVESTMENT POTENTIAL

A CONSIDERATION – NOT A GUARANTEE

While limited edition prints can appreciate in value over time, particularly for established artists or those with a limited number of prints produced, it’s important to remember that they are not guaranteed investments. The value depends on various factors like the artist’s reputation, market demand, and the specific artwork itself.

COLLECTING WITH CONFIDENCE

TIPS FOR NAVIGATING LIMITED EDITION PRINTS

  • DO YOUR RESEARCH | Before diving in, research the artist and their work. Understand their artistic style, past sales history (if any), and reputation within the art world.
  • SOURCE RESPONSIBLY | Purchase your limited edition prints from reputable galleries, artist websites, or authorized print dealers. Always look for certificates of authenticity that verify the edition size and the artist’s involvement.
  • FOCUS ON PASSION, NOT JUST VALUE |  While potential appreciation is a consideration, prioritize collecting prints you genuinely connect with aesthetically and emotionally.
  • BUDGET WISELY | Set a realistic budget for your collection and stick to it. Limited edition prints can range in price depending on the artist, edition size, and print size.

BEYOND VALUE

THE JOY OF LIMITED EDITION PRINTS

Owning a limited edition print goes beyond just potential investment. It allows you to:

  • OWN A UNIQUE PIECE OF ART | The limited nature of the print makes it a special addition to your collection.
  • SUPPORT THE ARTIST | Purchasing a limited edition print directly supports the artist and their creative endeavors.
  • CONNECT WITH THE ARTISTIC PROCESS | Knowing the artist was involved in creating the print adds a deeper layer of connection to the artwork.

Limited edition prints offer a captivating way to engage with the art world. By understanding the concept, collecting responsibly, and prioritizing your personal connection to the artwork, you can embark on a rewarding journey of discovery and build a collection that reflects your passion for art.
