Early spring in the garden
Washi papers, gouache and found paper collage on paper | 2019
This series of works on paper titled Cocooning and debuted in 2011, explores Tagada Hoffbeck’s affinity with color and its ability to communicate positive feelings. It is at once an ongoing exploration and a daily practice. The artist’s color selection usually includes three methodical steps; daily observation of nature captured via analog photographs, the curation of small collages using photographs in complementary colors, and after consideration, the creation of final artworks.

A. Forgetting to wear my glasses.
Tappan invites you to explore our curated collection of works that celebrate the unique energy of the artist's subject.
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.
