Dark Cloud #1
Paper pulp and watercolor | 2021
Fanny Allié created this body of work at the Dieu Donné Workspace Program Residency between 2020 and 2021. The series depicts intimate scenes in which different characters evolve in labyrinthian, underground, and dreamlike spaces. Each paper landscape contains unique movements and tensions, from loose structures to rhythmic hanging threads and choreographed gestures. To produce the works, Allié layered and sewed found pieces of fabric, leather, and cardboard. These combined materials served as molds for the final handmade paper pulp and watercolor works.

Q. When do you make your best work?
A. In the morning.
We invite you to explore our curated collection of geometric and abstract artworks by Tappan artists.
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 Hyperallergic, New York Times, and New York Magazine, Fanny Allié's mixed-media works incoporate sewing, texture, drawing and painting. Her work considers the human body from the lens of gesture and investigates how bodily forms operate when fragmented.
