TEXT ON THE ARTWORK

I’ve loved you so long

NOTES TO ARTWORK 

This may sound horrifically self-centred [bloody artists…] but I made this artwork first of all for myself. As an anchor point during a tough time in my life. To look at and remind myself that I did love myself, always have. Of course, the sentiment applies across the board. There’s something very special about long term love. It requires a grit and determination, an ability to walk through those days that feel like such a grind to get through to the days where the love feels shining. The fingerprints [mine] on this print are about how love marks you, internally. You wear the stamp of those who have loved you, and those you have loved, right down deep inside.

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 .
