About This Image

It’s a famous Conquistador story: When they first landed in the Americas, Hernán Cortés burned all his ships. They could either go forward, or die.

“Forward or Die” is a pretty admirable business plan even for non-Conquistadors, and for most people reading this, it’s a necessity.

That being said, be careful. Not everybody who talks the talk, can actually walk the walk. They’ll say they like innovation and disruption, they’ll say they like taking a chance and blazing new trails, when in fact they much prefer to sit by the pool and drink mojitos, talking about past glories.

It’s OK to be one of those people; it’s just not very rewarding.

You have been warned!

A Word on Framing - Or, why you should let us do it for you:

Having spent your hard earned cash on a beautiful piece of art we strongly recommend professional framing.

Our limited edition giclée prints and serigraphs are printed on the best archival paper available. It is designed to last a very, very long time. We've seen clients who have taken both routes; inexpensive poster frames, which will ensure that the print will not survive the fullness of time, and top end, proper museum type framing.

We have contracted with a local framer, so that you can get a really high quality professionally framed print for probably half of what your frame shop would charge.

We frame our giclée prints using a high quality mat between the print and the plexiglass. For our larger serigraphs we make shadow box frames so that the artwork is set back from the UV plexiglass, and the artwork is floating, 'hinged' to a back board that will make it stand out and look amazing. The moldings we offer are 1" 5/8 (4.25cm) minimalist sleek black or white matte lacquered wood.

Special framing requests are welcome. Questions? email us at art@gapingvoid.com
