Where Artistry Meets Compassion
Welcome to my world, where the familiar melts into the uncanny and the extraordinary. Allow me to guide you into a strange exhibit that rests at the intersection of art and life: a live giraffe, ensnared within the confines of a transparent glass box.
At first, the image may evoke a sense of wonder, a bewitching spectacle of nature's grandeur captured within the stark boundaries of a human construct. But as you peer closer, the scene transmutes into something more disquieting. The giraffe, an emblem of the wild and free, is ensnared in a see-through prison, its majestic silhouette pressed against the glass walls.
The glass box, a stark and lifeless cage, stands in chilling contrast to the vibrant life it contains. Its transparent walls offer no concealment, no respite. Every twitch of a muscle, every swish of the tail, every blink of those large, expressive eyes is on display, relentlessly exposed to the scrutiny of the spectator.
This canvas invites you to question and ponder. It draws you into a disconcerting dance between the natural and the artificial, between freedom and confinement. The giraffe, the emblem of unbounded wilderness, is now a captive of human artifice.
Isn't it a chilling spectacle? The living and the vibrant, entrapped in the stark and sterile. Allow the canvas to draw you in, let it provoke your thoughts and unsettle your comfort. For in this stark interplay of glass and flesh, of captivity and life, lies a tale darker and deeper than the glass box that contains it. It's a silent echo of nature's cry, a commentary on the boundaries we impose, and a reflection on the price we pay for our curiosities.
The finer details
The Canvas - Crafted with an eye for elegance and commitment to British manufacturing, our artworks are set within real wood frames, each meticulously constructed from high-quality solid wood and glazed with 2mm glass and an MDF backing board, complete with hanging fixings. The artwork itself is printed on a 290gsm canvas, a luxurious blend of 90% bamboo fibers and 10% cotton. This unique blend evokes a natural white hue, bereft of optical brighteners, and boasts a soft, subtly textured felt structure.
Sizing - Our canvases have a bit of a Goldilocks complex. They come in three delightful sizes to ensure you find the one that's 'just right'. Our charming A4 canvas measures a neat 297 x 210mm, perfect for those cozy nooks. The A3 canvas, a bit larger at 420 x 297mm, loves to be the centerpiece of a room. And for those with a flair for the dramatic, our A2 canvas stretches out to a grand 594 x 420mm, ready to command any wall with its presence. So, choose the size that sings to your heart and let the magic unfold!
Delivery time – Each canvas is my heartfelt sonnet to you, individually crafted with all the love and dedication of a besotted artist. But as with all great romances, there's a dash of suspense. After your order is placed, they'll take a brisk 5-9 working days to twirl, leap, and pirouette their way right onto your doorstep.
International Delivery? – Now, I've got a soft spot for our international chums, but my canvases? They're homebodies, through and through. They've let their passports gather dust and have developed a sort of travel anxiety. So, these are currently only deliverable within the UK.
Returns – Parting ways with a piece? No problem, it's as easy as a walk in the park on a sunny day! Just give me a shout via email, and we'll sort out the rest. Just a friendly reminder though, our returns window lasts for a smidgen over a lunar cycle - that's 31 days, for those who like to keep track - from the day you place your order. And of course, your returned piece should be as pristine as a dew-kissed morning bloom.
