About

Housing for black workers was high in demand in large cities such as New York and Chicago. However, with this demand came much discrimination white landlords, causing black neighborhoods to be more densely populated and expensive. Often residencies would house several families at a time; a common problem.  Peering through the frame of a bed into the room of a shared residence full of numerous other beds, Lawrence places the viewer in the place in the place of the resident themselves. Through the dynamicity of horizontal and vertical lines, Lawrence uses the bars of the bed frames as visual motifs for feelings of containment and restraint, emotions that many African Americans felt as a result of their housing arrangements after migrating North.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.

"The quality is what really caught my eye. All the other stuff was great, but it all was about my love of Wright being so far ahead of his time and then you completed the circle with prints and weight of paper that blew me away."
