BEHIND THE ARTWORK
“These collages formed the starting point of developing the mixed media assemblages. The shapes are attached in a way that they don't lie completely flat. This quality was what got me thinking about removing the collage completely from the background. Beginning with one shape I add various elements to it until it becomes another shape, almost like a metamorphosis.”
– Gráinne Nagle
Framed works are presented straight into a handmade, hand-stained thin wooden frame, set back with a fillet. This is available in hand-painted white, lime wash, dark brown or black ink stain.
Please specify your colour preference if known in the order notes when placing your order. We are very happy to hold up mouldings to your artwork to discuss which finish works best.
Framing is 2 - 4 weeks as standard but please let us know if this is needed for a particular date and we will do our best to accommodate a faster turnaround for you. Alternative mouldings, frame style or size are available upon request, do not hesitate to contact us to discuss further.
We frame with standard glass which is included in the price, however we do recommend specialist glass which contains UV & anti-reflective qualities to ensure the archival qualities and depth of colour is maintained. We can quote for various options, please let us know in your order notes if this is of interest and this can be quoted and invoiced following your order placement.
Artwork shipping costs are calculated according to artwork size, framing and delivery location.
We take our responsibility of caring for the artworks very seriously, and whether framed or unframed we package artworks with the utmost care and protection using high quality sustainable materials. Unframed works are always packaged flat to ensure artworks arrive in excellent condition, however, please get in touch if you would like to discuss options.
