Acrylic ink, vinyl, plastic, and pen on canvas | 2022
In her new series Elysium, artist Alison Cooley paints a love story with the natural world—allowing us to bear witness to her connection with the intricate, rhythmic patterns of the environment. In undulating blues, grays, and hints of gold, these paintings explore moments of heightened awareness and consciousness brought on by the living world. Through a slow, deliberate studio process, Cooley builds layers from toothy, stained canvas to smooth, glossy plains overlapped with matte ink washes. Each work is a meditation on the illusion of control—layers of paint unpredictably fall into patterns and pools on the flat surface during the creation process. The final composition is a surrender to harmony and an encouragement to protect the source—nature itself.

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.
