To Be Here To Arrive
Hand pulled screen print on Japanese Izumi paper, gloss ink and glitter on selected elements | 2019
“If not, winter,” the continued series from multimedia artist Ewelina Skowrońska, was created during her residency at Shirakino Art Village in Minamishimabara. Inspired by fragments of Sappho, the earliest and most famous Greek woman poet, the series explores issues connected with gender, identity, sexuality, and the body — particularly what is absent and what is present in the idea of self. Across the limited edition screen prints, Skowrońska explores subjects connected with the experience of living within the body, and the ways gender and sexuality intersect to form complex identities. Each title in the series is taken from the fragmented poems of Sappho, and the artist responded to each of those fragments through her art in a quest for her own identity and place of belonging. Much is left to the imagination regarding history’s Sappo. Similarly, Skowrońska’s work leaves the viewer thinking about the unseen connections we could take for ourselves — with her work and with each other.

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.
Drawing from history, mythology, and culture to explore concepts of body, gender, and identities across a variety of mediums, Ewelina Skowronska's works have been exhibited globally in London, Ireland, the USA, Canada, Poland, and Japan.
