Longing and Belonging
Acrylic, mechanical pencil, ink, oil pastel on vellum | 2022
Eriko Tsogo’s “Psychomagicpower” unpacks the trauma and introspection collectively experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic. Tsogo attributes the series to her alter ego, BBQ (Bounce Back Qween). In April 2020, BBQ created a voicemail hotline for people to anonymously vent about their mental states and troubling concerns. A multitude of themes arose, including collective anxiety, political consciousness, abuse of power, family dynamics, gender politics, and more. Inspired by these narratives, BBQ created a body of work to encapsulate the callers’ reflections. Each mixed media piece represents the tearing up and renegation of identity that comes with change. BBQ composed the collages out of previously completed artworks—deconstructing and reincarnating them into new forms.

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.
