Get it framed! All through December 20% off on all frames with your fine art print purchase.

Our frames are carefully selected and stand out in material quality as wel as design. They’re made of an aluminium profile which guarantees a lightweight yet sturdy base. We offer them in 17 different styles including metallics and woods and even some bright colors. We use acrylic glass which is better, brighter and lighter than ordinary glass and less likely to damage during transportation.

The width of the standard frame is 5 mm (~ 0.2 inch) and the depth is 22 mm (~ 0.9 inch). All frames are also available in a luxury version which come with thicker glass and an additional insert to elevate the artwork, adding an extra dimension to it’s display. The width of a luxury frame is 8 mm (~ 0.3 inch) and the depth is 35 mm (~ 1.4 inch).

All frames are custom made to fit the art print by our professional framer and come with a ready-to-hang suspension system.

Note: Framing an artwork takes a bit of time and requires a special shipping method which may affect process and shipping time (but it is definitely worth your while).

In almost every work by Karl Hammer, the title clearly guides the content, but the attentive observer will find a multitude of added signals and hidden messages. In its title, the artwork Theater of Transiency says everything that can be said about such a theme. The girl can be seen twice as a character in the same photo, where she initially looks down as a dancer on a more mature version of herself, which then looks down on a skull (symbol of death) on which a pigeon lands (symbolism for 'peace with one's own mortality').

Work method
The way Karl often uses light and shadows is similar to the style of the old master painters, which is why his art often runs a thin line between a classic painting and a modern photograph. When Karl can't find the perfect set to make the art work that he wants, he simply creates it. He then scouts locations and combines this with specific props, sometimes shot in macro, and models using photo editing tools.
