The starting point for this collage was a vintage photograph I found at the Rastro, Valencias weekly flea market, of four women walking down the beach at Las Arenas in Valencia in 1932. A vintage calling card, with its accompanying tiny envelope, and some very old, trodden upon school notes added to the story I created with yet more papers and bits of packaging, making for a composition that hums with vintage vibrations, perhaps from the 30s and on towards a mid-century thrum, with its percolating design scheme.

ORIGINAL ART WORK

These are handmade, living pieces, many with overhanging elements from the collage assembly and the pieces are mounted in a slightly raised fashion (so as to appear floating) above a white, acid-free matte. We use Museum Glass, specially coated to make the viewing of the art completely glare and reflection-free (it looks like there is no glass; all you see is the artwork), as well as being 92% UV filtering (a very important feature, due to the use of fragile, paper ephemera).

PRINTS

Similarly, the prints are designed to include a digital bright white surround “matte” to allow the piece to "float". They are Giclee printed on thick archival, acid-free 189GSM paper. A digital signature by Shelley is included.
Although the originals vary in size, we try to find the closest print size to represent the original work, and the matte increases that size by approximately 1" on each side.
