  • Q&A

Speaking a new language requires an alteration of the body in that the position and movement of the tongue and throat are rearranged. When Body Practices Alteration, With Surface, With Movement contemplates the linguistic embodiment of immigrants whose native language is not English. Pyrography drawing, which leaves burn marks, requires control of a body in that the hand holding the soldering iron must wait immovably until the tool etches dark shades on the paper. This process of writing, with burn marks, one after another, presents the confinement of a body and the labor of immigrants adapting to a new language.

PRINTING

Each print is made to order in a Limited-Edition. Our archival-quality giclee prints are generated on the highest quality Lightjet Type C printer using archival inks and are printed on 100% cotton rag aid-free 330 gsm matte paper.

FRAMING

Our gallery-style frames are designed to showcase each work, custom cut, assembled by hand, and made to order. We offer white and black matte options. Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat.


FRAME MOULDING

Our high quality solid wood mouldings are made in Italy and crafted in the U.S. offering a modern profile designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, the slim moldings provide a clean frame that allows all focus to be on the work.

Measures 3/4 inches wide; 1 1/4 inches height; rabbet height 1 inches.

ACID FREE MATERIALS

Our backing board, tapes, seals, etc are all acid-free to prevent any damage to your artwork for a lifetime.

They include an Otra Vox Certificate of Authenticity but are not numbered or signed by this artist. Our no-inventory model helps us limit waste and makes it possible to include work from all around the world. To the extent we can, we choose print sizes based on US standard frame sizes. Unless otherwise specified, all artworks are printed with a border to protect the work during handling and allow for matting should the customer want to order a custom frame. 


How are your prints made?

The prints are generated on the highest quality Lightjet Type C printer on  Epson Hot Press Bright 330 gsm matte paper (unless otherwise specified). Each print is carefully proofed, printed, and packed at our local print lab in Los Angeles. 


Where do the proceeds go?

The Print Shop was created to support practicing artists. Half of the proceeds go to the artist, and 5% of retail goes towards a charity or Otra Vox's programs, by choice of the customer.
