About the Work

Martine Gutierrez investigates personal and collective identity through the transformation of physical space and composed self, drawing from eclectic media to break down boundaries of gender, subject, artist, and muse. Gutierrez’s two new editions, Alcove A and Alcove B, feature her irreverent take on classicism. Hand-embellished with India Ink, the imagery originates from her body of work showcased in the exhibition Infinite Identities (2020) at Huis Marseille Museum of Photography (Amsterdam), which included Gutierrez’s soft sculpture, video works, and wallpaper featuring hand-drawn embellishment in the vein of Alcove A and Alcove B.

Authentication & Resale

This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by the artist. 

Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.


Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.

Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.

We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.

Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.

Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.

Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
