About the Work
Working within the established genre of the female nude, Danielle Orchard has commanded attention of contemporary art audiences by introducing her distinctly present-day ethos to a historically imbalanced lineage. Female figures in Orchard’s scenes are featured in various states of repose within haven-like atmospheres, yet there is a disquietude, an unease that seems discordant alongside symbols of leisure. Environments are tilted or fractured, Orchard’s nods to analytic cubism, enveloping the characters in such a way that the psychological space of a scene creates kinesis within the stillness. Unlike Manet’s Olympia or Valzquez’s Venus at her Mirror, Orchard’s subjects retain their dimensional humanity, intimately aware of the behemoth task of being seen and the justified ambivalence that follows.
Pictorial references and cinematographic allusions abound in Orchard’s oeuvre. In Morning Rituals, a print edition of 50, we wander into a theatrical scene, ambiguous and contrasted — a lone figure unclothed and outstretched, suspended in contemplation, surrounded by gendered accessories like suit ties and manicured nails. If our morning rituals are the forms in which we prepare to greet the world, Orchard provides ripe continuums to consider within the natural artifice of her work.

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.
