Buy this as a set of 4 as is, or pair with the beautiful 4 x 4 pure acrylic magnet frame from Canetti Design Group, maker of the first and best magnet frames.
This is a special offer. I do not sell these frames separately, only with my Small Prints.
The magnet frames come apart with a slight tug, so you can change the art easily. Fits two prints, front and back.
I have field-tested these frames for 12 years since I started selling them in my brick and mortar shop. They never yellow, they maintain their beautiful clarity, and are archivally safe. They will never damage even your most delicate artwork or photos.
“I Want To Wear Ladies Clothes" is my lighthearted look at the topic of clothing and gender while highlighting some the issues that women have found themselves facing even more than usual during the pandemic: having to do the bulk of the family and household work.
The men in the pictures are from 17th and 18th Century France. They readily illustrate that the distinction between men's and women's clothing is meaningful solely according to time and place. The clothes the men wear would be considered women’s clothing in the 21st century. It’s not hard to recognize that clothing is capriciously gendered, but it remains tough to acknowledge the jobs and duties associated with women are also gendered. The burden of running a household and rearing children remains overwhelmingly the domain of women, even when both parents are home and working.
The men say “look at me” while the women say, “there’s work to be done, mister. Get cracking!”
