Graphite on paper, 2014
This series by Pauline and Zoe shows no chance or freedom from development. The pair stands by an established set of rules, and this rigorous protocol implies research, sketching and discussion as it grants equality in the sense of authorship. Beyond the fact of sharing ideas and artistic goals, working in a pair allows Pauline and Zoe to escape the solitary imperative of drawing, disrupting the link between the drawing and its craftsman. Together, their designs create a non-exhaustive directory of objects, places and architectures that leave them with the freedom to expand as they progress. Through seriality and repetition, each drawing forces a different look to be cast on each element. The series is a backup, an attempt at distancing insignificant yet memorable objects that resonate as vivid memories.

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.
