Flashe and collage on handmade paper | 2023
Helen Rebekah Garber’s anticipated new series emerged from the artist’s move back to rural New York, where she spent her childhood. For the first time in quite some time, Garber experienced seasons once again—and began contemplating the genesis of Systems & Seasons, a comment on the passage of time and how humans seemingly have an innate need to keep records of time through dates, memorialization, and social media. The works are built on the data and algorithms that chase and shape every decision we make—and each work has significance and meaning that relate to a certain day in Garber’s life. In a departure from the bright palette that the artist frequently used while living in California, this new series alters the color palette according to the season, to be sensitive to the organic world around her. Viewers will join Garber in her work to incorporate the passage of time into her creative process, following along as the anticipation of constant change leads to new ideas and new possibilities while giving an immediacy and an appreciation for the moment at hand.

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.
