Soft Flood 3
Oil, acrylic, spray paint and acrylic ink on canvas | 2021
“Soft Floods” is a series of nature-inspired works by Astri Styrkestad Haukaas. Using acrylic ink, oil paint, and spray paint, she creates organic, abstract compositions reminiscent of the natural world. Poetically musing on the series, Haukaas writes:
nature rushed to fill the void
My mother is a stone now
Her existence and presence dependent on me
That is okay- my existence was dependent on her for so long
She is just like the rocks I carry
Hold them in my hand and warm them up
Put them down and pick them up again
filling in the cracks of a stone
A space that separates
yet proves our connection
makes everything come loose
Tearing up soil
With her playful, violent hand
I look at the world around me
and the stones I carry

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.
