Mixed media on Japanese Izumi paper | 2022
“Bound by Blood” is a series of work that uses Japanese mythology, literature and spirituality as the core of its artistic explorations. Between the uncanny dreams and surreal tales, Skowrońska’s paintings guide the viewer into the ambiguity of the world, relationships, and femininity perceived as a fusion of beauty and hostility. Drawing on the work of the Japanese writer Fumiko Enchi, in this series of paintings, femininity is presented in the form of an organic motif, repeated in each of the works, in an almost obsessive, yet at the same time controlled and ambiguous way. The work is fluid and rejects binary divisions of the perception of the world, between matter and energy, body and mind, space and time, male and female, human and non-human things.

Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
