Winter to Spring
Watercolor, gouache, color pencil, crayon, paper | 2022
In her new series of ethereal paintings, artist, poet, and spiritual thinker Satsuki Shibuya continues her work translating the energy of the unseen, spiritual world into something more tangible. She offers the following poem to accompany Oceanic Cosmos:
Looking above, looking below,
all is a part of us to know.
We may hide, we may jump,
frolic and flow,
but nothing changes the fact that we are of the Earth,
and part of the Cosmos.
Particles of dust, stars, the moon, and sun, circulate within.
Our blood, tears, veins pumping with life,
coming directly from the sea and night.
Brothers and sisters, let us Unite,
for we are of the same elements,
rainbow of colors,
coloring the night,
bringing light under the Earth’s skies.

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 Architectural Digest, Vogue, Kinfolk and Cereal Magazine, Satsuki’s meditative abstract watercolor paintings and limited edition prints play with neutral tones and elegant brush strokes. Memory and meditation form the foundation of her practice.
