Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2022
This set of prints from Laura Burke has many things in common. The works in Tabletop are all intentionally chaotic compositions, filled to the brim with imaginary fruit and flowers — and the element that tethers each piece to reality is a table. For Summer, she pictured a bird’s eye view over a table of freshly cut flowers, a small majolica dish, and various fruit awaiting organization. She imagined Veritable Picnic as the most aesthetically pleasing mess she could manage, the table to the left has a Pierre Bonnard inspired tablecloth, casting a shadow onto the elements of the meal below. This series continues with themes from Burke’s other work, pointing to memory and the mixing of outdoor and indoor spaces. She considers the table as a structural element to keep the viewer attached to the real world. It’s familiar, and even though it’s somewhat hidden in Eye Wish and Early Lunch, you can still spot it.

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

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.
