About the Work
Did Charles Burchfield anticipate Suzanne Simard? By bringing up to the moment research about how trees communicate and care for one another via mycorrhizal networks to the history of American landscape painting—and acknowledging the digital visual vocabularies of her childhood—Madeleine Bialke creates both a personal and resonant “twilight haze.”
Of Many Moons, an edition of 40 prints with 15 hand-embellished by the artist, Bialke writes:
“A small sapling stands in front of a large old tree trunk. They reference Mars and its moon Phonos, and some of the other moons that orbit Mars. I was thinking about connectivity, and how we are all in each other's orbits, but also family— the young progeny next to a giant parent. A glow comes from an external source, raining down on the trunk to hit the young tree. The title, Many Moons, also references the time it will take for the young tree to loom as large as its parent.”

Authentication & Resale
Signed and numbered by the artist on front. This work is also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by Exhibition A.

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.
