Acrylic ink on muslin | 2019
In these works, the form within the composition is intercepted by planes and lines that both construct the impression of an actual space and simultaneously eradicate that impression. Made both in LA and Virginia, Gabrielle meditates on the act of being “away” or “at home”, how the absence or presence of a ground suggests a fluctuating scale for the architectural elements found in her stitched works.
“I imagine that when I am home, I have a fixed shape and proportion in regard to my surroundings, and when I am away my scale fluctuates in relation to the place. I am seeking my shape, navigating my edges.”
While unsettling, there is a freedom.

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.
Teschner’s “Sculptures-That-Are-Flat” are composed of stitched, individually painted planes, using the symbolic language of architectural forms and of natural forces to demonstrate the expressive power of spatial relationships. Her work can be seen in various Soho Houses, The Goodtime Hotel (Miami), Facebook HQ (Meta), the De Young Museum, Booooooom, Sight Unseen, Elle, Coveteur, AnOther Magazine and The Good Trade.
