Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2021
These original works by Shibuya capture her iconic style of tranquil watercolor painting that is meant to be viewed as a meditation; a space to capture the energy between expression and canvas. The artist writes poems as a way to express the motivation and purpose of the works she creates. Below is her poem “Flowing,” written about this series, “Time Machine”:
From the mountains
into the ocean
Flowing from one,
flowing to the next,
one never knows,
when to rest.
Flow from the fountain,
flow from the meadow,
flying high, floating high.
Flow, flow, flow,
not a doubt except light.
Flow through the clouds,
flow through the fog,
flow, flow, flow.
Flowing through life,
once upon a time,

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.
