    About the Artwork
    Knowing my love of fonts, scripts and languages, one of my daughters gave me a light box with plastic slide on letter forms. I took these and stacked them one on top of the other to create a series of new letters and then scanned them into the computer to use in visual poems like this one. So the basis of this typography is our known alphabet doubled up to create an invented language. And with an added historical, biological image this creates an illustration that appears to come from another culture. I have always delighted in the quality of other tongues and how they act upon the ear, the resonance of particular words. Text from other languages are freely combined to arrive at something new and different. 'Biosfera' is the Spanish for 'biosphere'. This piece first appeared in 2019 in The Poetry Foundation’s Poetry magazine, based in Chicago.

About Our Sizing

Stated sizes are paper sizes NOT image sizes (for prints and frames). For details regarding matt/border widths and total sizes including the frame, please refer to the size guide.

About Our Frames
Skip the trip to the framer. We custom mount and frame every artwork with museum-grade materials.

Framing Highlights
  • Frames have a square profile measuring 20mm (front face) by 23mm (depth from wall)
  • Available in four colours (more colours and frame styles coming soon)
  • Delivered fully strung, ready for hanging
  • Add a custom mount/matt, cut perfectly to fit your artwork
  • Custom framed by hand in the UK to Fine Art Trade Guild standards
About the matt/mount

A bright white, conservation grade, FSC certified, 100% acid free matt/mount, that will not discolour or fade with age. Matt depth is 1.4mm.
Borders & Matting
Choose from three distinct display options:

Full Bleed
A “Full Bleed” reproduction simply means printing the artwork all the way to the edge. A contemporary display option that works on its own or as part of an eclectic gallery wall.

White Border
small, white border frames the artwork for a “faux-matted” look. Details of the white border widths for each size can be found in the size guide.

Matted
The artwork is matted using a custom cut, 1.4mm bright white, conservation grade, FSC certified, 100% acid free matt/mount, that will not discolour or fade with age. Perfect for framing smaller artworks.
About Our Paper Type
Choose between two paper types:

Smooth Fine Art Paper
A high-quality, smooth matt fine art paper with a light, fine-grain surface texture.

Hahnemuhle German Etching
A heavy-duty paper with a velvety matt surface. In contrast to the Smooth Fine Art Paper, it has a warm white hue and a more textured finish.
