Oil and pastel on canvas| 2020
Working in a style that alternates between figurative and abstract, the Brooklyn-based artist is less concerned with precise anatomy and more concerned with the poetry of the body in her mixed media paintings and works on paper. Her latest collection in particular — organic fluid, and simplified-yet-suggestive mixed media pieces made with oil, gouache, pastel, and more — is more personal than ever, using elements of self-portraiture and autobiographical narratives as a jumping off point to express more universal truths.

"My recent work began with a desire to interpret bodily function and experience, to question and understand our ungraspable insides."

We invite you to explore our curated collection of 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.
