About the Work
In our first collaboration with the artist, Shaffer has hand-finished a series of 15 prints with acrylic paint; creating over a dozen unique narratives from a singular bold foundation. "This work started as an ode to weeds. Usually the plants in my paintings are in pots or are coming out of soiled ground. I imagine this plant, however, has grown out of a chink or crevasse in this built environment. I still don't understand what defines one plant as a weed and the other as welcome, but to me, weeds are the most life-affirming forms. As far as I can tell, their existence is defined by stout defiance of control, and yet they are sometimes the most beautiful and delicate plants in the garden. Dandelions especially are magical; their greens are highly nutritious, their flowers look like the sun, they have the most beautiful way of propagating seeds, and they can be turned into wine.

Please contact email@example.com to have this work framed. Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 2-4 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”.
