NOTES TO ARTWORK

I often think the way to having love - the way to anything really - is to hold it gently.  To let it go and see if it comes back.  I also dig the shape of the heart I drew here.  It ain't perfect and it's more beautiful because of that.

I was working with the lovely Annabelle Devine on a commission in 2017. This heart and these words were part of the initial drafts I did to show her, the words part of the phrase Annabelle came up with for me to work with for her artwork. The artwork I ended up making for Annabelle was completely different than this, we went down a whole different aesthetic track. But I loved this image so much I wanted to make it a studio print. It often happens that way with commissions - on the way to making something for someone else, I come up with another artwork entirely.

 NOTES TO ARTWORK 

 My son said this to me when he was a small boy.  I've always loved that he said that to me. 

This artwork was made as a part of a whole poster series I did which was called 21 days where 21 posters were put up in different urban centres. The project was about getting words out there in a public space which were about how things felt, rather than about selling a product.

OPEN EDITION STUDIOPRINT

“Open edition” refers to the fact that this artwork is made in an unlimited number of prints.

UNFRAMED STUDIOPRINTS

These A3 [29.7x42]cm prints printed on lovely paper, and have a “B-side” which has the edition details and title of the work, as well as an image. In this way, the “b-side” serves as authenication - so in later years you know it came from me, the artist.

The prints come in a strong portfolio sleeve suitable for gifting [third photo].

They are also designed to slip into any A3 frame you can buy inexpensively from a large chain store [studioprints are my entry level artworks and I love that they are accessible in price]. These chain-store frames look totally okay with the prints.

FRAMED STUDIOPRINTS

If you’re looking for your studioprint to look all kinds of lovely, and for it to last in the long term, then I recommend having the work professionally custom-framed. I can get this done for you, or go to a good framer in your town. The other excellent thing about custom-framing is that it will be proportionately really good for the artwork, and make the print look twice as good!. The second photo loaded here shows the custom-framing but with a different image.

AVAILABLE AS EXQUISITE LARGER SIZE EXHIBITION PRINT

If you’re looking for an artistic centrepiece for your home, this artwork can also be made as an exhibition print in larger sizes, on gorgeous archival paper. Any studioprint can be made into an exhibition print.

TURNAROUND TIME

Please note the turnaround time for unframed prints, from time of ordering to time of me sending via post or courier, depending on which you choose, is ten working days. Custom-framed artwork takes approx 3 weeks. If you would like it more quickly than this, in some cases I can accommodate, please contact me via email to discuss: studio@fleurwickes.co.nz .
