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.

"This series is a product of my frustration with my Syringe series. I had 100s of paintings on paper that I considered failures and had come to resent," explains Gittes. "I tore up a large piece and put it in a blender with water, which was therapeutic for me. The following day, the clump of "paper" in the blender was solid. The natural chemicals of the paper that were released during the blend held the clump together.
Eventually, I started shaping the mache-like substance, realizing that if I laid other pieces of paper onto the mush while it was still wet, the two would naturally adhere once the mush had dried completely. I take my favorite moments out of the pieces I'm about to destroy (1-2 inch strips) and arrange them on the mush that I just blended. It takes anywhere from 20-100 pieces to make a single blender piece, depending on size."
In a sense, I want to see these pieces find redemption by working together as failures, creating a single success in a new piece."
