What Needs Must Be
Oil on Canvas | 2019
Matt McCormick reimagines the American landscape and the idealism behind it in a new series of works on canvas and paper that capture the sublime, the alien stillness of the American West, and the dreams and desertion of our past.
16 x 20 inches
The work comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed and numbered by the Co-Founder of Tappan
Q. Where do you draw inspiration from?
A. A lot of the work is based on personal memories and idolized daydreams around those memories...
Tappan invites you to explore our curated collection of artworks focusing on a sense of wanderlust.
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.
