To Enter Kindly Havens
Photoreproduction print on heavyweight off-white paper | 2022
This is Gabrielle Teschner’s first print offering of her “Sculpture-That-Are-Flat” at Tappan. The collection explores the artist’s continued fascination with edges and three dimensionality. Teschner’s editions on paper highlight the intricacies and imperfections of her original materials; creases, folds, tears, threads and frayed edges are purposefully left visible to create a sense of delicate tension.
“To Enter Kindly Havens” draws on Teschner’s interests in both the lush palette of the tropics and the polychromatic palette of Greco-Roman history, linking the symbols of classical architecture to their botanical origins. Whether columns or capitals, pedestals or a single stair, the sculptures isolate elements used in the building of larger structures.
The original works are constructed of individual ink-painted planes of cotton muslin — compositions whose lines are seams, whose shapes are defined by confrontations of color.
17 x 11 inches
Floated: 21.5 x 15.5 x 1.5 inches
The work comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed and numbered by the Co-Founder of Tappan
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.
Teschner’s “Sculptures-That-Are-Flat” are composed of stitched, individually painted planes, using the symbolic language of architectural forms and of natural forces to demonstrate the expressive power of spatial relationships. Her work can be seen in various Soho Houses, The Goodtime Hotel (Miami), Facebook HQ (Meta), the De Young Museum, Booooooom, Sight Unseen, Elle, Coveteur, AnOther Magazine and The Good Trade.
