My paintings are set in zones of conflict between human progress and the natural world. They look at the impact of a changing climate on human systems as well as our impact on ecosystems. This tension plays out in the paint, as rigid grids contrast swampy pools and violent spills. I’m interested in cycles of construction and destruction, decay and rebirth. What do we build to keep ourselves protected from natural elements and how does that, in turn, make our environment more volatile? I was raised in a family of biologists, where questions about the psychological and physical effects of our quickly changing planet were centered.

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.


ARCHIVAL UV-PROTECTIVE PLEXIGLASS

This professional picture frame grade crystal clear UV Resistant plexiglass will keep the work safe through shipping, handling, and hanging. Lighter and stronger than glass, it will protect prints from 98% damaging UV rays and is approximately 1/8 inches thick.


ACCOUTREMENT 

All prints and framed prints include a Certificate of Authenticity and are hand numbered and embossed with an Otra Vox seal.

What do you sell? 

At this time, our shop sells limited-edition fine art prints exclusively, which is a fixed number of identical prints. Unfortunately, when an edition is sold out, it is no longer available. All of our limited editions are exclusive to Otra Vox.


Do you offer framing? 

Yes! We offer a white and black matte framing option. Please see the "framing" tab for details. 


What should I expect? 

All print specifications are made in collaboration with the artist. Unless otherwise noted, prints are made to order up to an edition of 50 at the various sizes listed. 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.

Artist Spotlight

Your painting has a lot of dimensions to it. Could you describe your layering technique?


Much of my work centers around the tension between human progress and the natural world. I layer paint as a way to play out this drama in the materials themselves...
