TOP QUESTIONS ABOUT MY ORIGINALS
Q: How long do your original pieces take to create?
They take anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months. One took a year and a half. If you're thinking, that is a long time, you're right. Even by artist standards.
- Foraging and sourcing: Since my main art material isn't one I can buy at a store, finding unique materials takes time. But it also makes each piece more unique.
- Individualized prep-work: A part of my practice is preparing the organic material. And each one had different needs for drying, stabilizing, and finishing. Some pieces require special equipment and outside resources. For my art, it's all about the nature being featured. I won't skip a stunning piece of nature that on the surface seems too hard to prepare. On the other side of that is discovery and that fuels me and this art.
- Catching lightning in a bottle: Composing color, composition and textures can happen quickly, or can take a few weeks of exploring. But once it arrives, it's undeniably unique and the nature being featured appears to effortlessly float and flow on the canvas.
Q: How do you price originals?
I mostly price by square footage with my experience and years of developing my art factored into. It's a pioneering style of art, which means it will only get better as I continue to hone my craft and push the limits. Buying originals is like having rookie cards, they are always valuable to collect when you connect with a piece.
There are a few factors I use to establish pricing:
- The size of the finished piece. I price by the linear foot. I tend to work big to tap into the feeling of awe I get when in nature that I'm translating to canvas. I often will offer payment plans to collectors who are interested. I know art is an investment.
- The rarity of the natural material. Part of my practice is foraging. It can take years to find similar pieces, if ever. This creates a beautiful mix of uniqueness and awe.
- My experience as an artist. Being an artist of nearly 25 years, and the exploring, research, intuition and skills I've built are ones I cherish and use in every piece.
Q: How can I see the details up close? I live out of state?
I get asked this question by both new and repeat collectors. Video tours are great for this! Plus, they're fun.
Photos are a good starting point, but you experience art in 3D. So a video tour is a great way to get close up and see it from all angles. You can also ask as many questions as you have. With the added bonus of likely getting a tour of the studio and hear exclusive details at what's coming up!
It's easy: email me at Hello@JaclynGordyan.com below and we get it set up!
Q: When will my original artwork arrive?
Typically, 3-4 weeks. Internationally it will be a little longer, roughly 5-6 weeks. There are options for faster shipping we can work through if you'd like it sooner.
During this time:
- I'm going over the piece with a fine tooth comb to make sure everything is secured.
- I'm working with my shipping partner to square away all the delivery details including final estimates based on your location and securing a delivery date that works for you.
- If you've opted for framing, I'll coordinate with you about options. This is being built and fitted prior to shipping so when it arrives to you, it's ready to display.
I work to give updates as I have them, but please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like a status update! I am as excited as you are to have the work in your space.
Please note due to the organic nature of the elements I work with, there may be some natural materials at the bottom of the crate. This is normal and shouldn't effect the overall piece's composition or aesthetic.
Q: Do you ship globally?
I do! It's has a few extra steps, but my crating / shipping partner helps make this process smooth for us both.
Q: How does shipping work?
I work with a fantastic professional fine art shipping company. They build a crate and soft pack specific to that piece of art. They then pack it securely to arrive safely to your front door.
There are a few additional offerings that are worth thinking about if you are interested in an original:
- White Glove Delivery: the fine art handlers will uncrate the piece and place it safely inside your home or building. This also includes the removal the crating materials for you.
- Installation: This is what it sounds like. They will professionally hang the work in the place of your choosing.
Q: Can I pick up my original from your studio?
Yes! You are always welcome to come to the studio to pick up originals! I love meeting collectors and sharing the space, and if it saves you a little money as well, then we both win!
Q: Is framing included?
I do offer framing as a part of the purchase! It's optional, and it's a part of the purchasing conversation. I have a fantastic small business framing shop near me. I send options on what I think will look best based on your style.
Q: How much does shipping cost?
Shipping is calculated based on the location of the buyer. Typical prices ranges are $400-$1200 for domestic US shipping. International has a wider range of $600-$2900. This includes insurance coverage for the value of the artwork to cover the art during shipping.
