Burn Your Bra
Blind emboss on found paper Mounted on linen in custom acrylic frame | 2015
These embossed works are the last of an edition of three from Humphreys’ first solo exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery in Los Angeles in 2015. They are printed on found handmade paper and represente milestone pieces for the artist—it was her first use of handmade paper and the depth really excited her, so it’s understandable she cherished them for a while before releasing them for purchase. The three works are from a period of making where Humphreyswas developing a lot of iconography. Each one is made from filling one giant icon with many small ones and the name reveals what you see as you get closer: Flower Power, Love Struck, Burn Your Bra.

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.
