About the Work
We are proud to have collaborated with Delphine Desane to create To no longer think. Second act., a series of 20 hand-finished silkscreen prints. The series was made in her studio by layering acrylic and ink atop a base print, transforming the original image to create over a dozen unique narratives. This work typifies the artist's dramatic style. Her portraits of Black women with bold, assertive gazes are informed by her own experience as a Black woman, Black mother and as an immigrant living in a new country. This piece encapsulates the wisdom and strength that come from these lived experiences. The precise application of striking color and contrast commands our attention and makes this work both powerful and calming to view.
Delphine Desane (b. 1988 Paris, France) had her first solo exhibition at Luce Gallery (Turin, IT) in 2021. She has been featured in group exhibitions at CANADA (New York), Taymour Grahne Gallery (London), CFHILL (Stockholm), and PENSKE projects (Los Angeles). Desane gained international recognition after she was commissioned to make a work for the cover of Vogue Italia's January 2020 issue. Her works have been acquired by the Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (Marrakech), and numerous private collections across the United States and Europe. Desane lives and works in New York.

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.
