I used to sell prints as limited edition, oak-framed artworks. I have changed my outlook on this.
I figure that I am financially secure due to having a steady income from being a web designer. So, why am I trying to boost my finances through a hobby? Where there is no gift there is no art and I want to democratise the process as far as I can without making a loss and giving them away.
I figure that they are nice things, the collages. People like nice things and I would like my nice thing to be in your collection. So, I have dropped my prices.
As a result of me dropping my prices, I have had to ship the prints without a frame.
After all, Art enhances people’s lives; they need to see it, own it and possess it. choosing to ditch the expensive frames for my prints and selling the images loose makes it affordable and accessible.
I refuse to let my work be numbered. This way it is priced affordably, undermining the art markets tactic of charging more for limited edition runs.
