The City Sleeps
Pencil and Acrylic on Murano 160gsm | 2021
In Alarah Gee’s new series of pencil drawings, geometric shapes and forms are constructed as places, spaces and faces. In this series, Gee focuses on the sensation of solid colour as primary significance, and linework as secondary, and the perspectives and intense visual experience this creates within the spatial frame, a new experimental, and playful approach to Gee's continued exploration and the potential found within curvilinear and linear formations.

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.
Featured in the New York Times, Architectural Digest, and Coveteur, UK born Gee's minimalist line drawings and meditative ink paintings recontextualize everyday household objects with a focus on geometric, post-modern forms and the artist's thoughtful gestures.
