Sois Belle 2.6 + 2.7
Diptych | Archival Pigment Print
Joyful and vibrant, humorous and sensual, the photographs of the Belgian artist Annelie Vandendael disrupt the glossy norms of fashion photography. Her works celebrate a playful self expression, including the imperfections. She’s titled her newest series of photographs Sois belle (be beautiful), a cheeky command to merge imaginatively with a larger than life environment. With her Hasselblad camera, the artist plays visual games of hide-and-seek with friends she’s photographed.

“I depict the human being rather as a piece of nature than as an object,” Vandendael says.

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.
Annelie's bold photographs have been featured in L’officiel, MyDomaine, Elle NL, Vice, Harper's Bazaar Mexico, Vogue Living Australia, the Museum of Photography Den Haag, and most recently, curated into Pharrell's Miami luxury hotel project, The Goodtime Hotel.
