Neon and plexi | 2021
Conceptual cues from journalism, vanguardism, mythology, and primitivism are layered within this body of work. Each sculpture expands on themes from Beletic’s “Neon Primitivism” series, in which she juxtaposed symbolism from ancient cultures with features of modern art and music. The new neon pieces serve as punk, pop art gestures, lighting up rooms and demanding attention. Beletic fittingly titled the series “Neon Works (for the Vanguards to take home with them),” hoping the sculptures will define space for extroverts and partiers.
The sculptures in this series are made of authentic neon, wired, and can be plugged into regular outlets. Each work includes pre-drilled holes in the plexi as well as hardware for wall mounting.

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.
