The canvas "Profound Sorrow" depicts a scene of intense emotional pain and turmoil. The background is a distressed wall, which is fracturing and cracking, with holes and black paint dripping. The texture of the wall creates a sense of decay and hopelessness.
In the center of the painting, a person is leaning against the wall, head bent over in sorrow. The figure appears vulnerable, with arms dangling at their side and their head hanging low. The person seems to be overwhelmed by grief and despair, lost in their own world of sorrow.
Adding to the surreal nature of the painting, there is a platform with a doorway just out of reach, a little further up the wall and to the left. It creates a sense of longing and unfulfilled desire, suggesting that there may be a way out of the distressing situation, but the person is unable to reach it or even see it due to the overwhelming emotions they are experiencing.
The fact that the person is facing towards the platform but unable to see it due to their bent-over head adds a poignant layer to the canvas. It suggests that sometimes when we are consumed by sorrow, we may be unable to see the opportunities or hope that may be just within our reach.
Furthermore, the person is halfway up the wall, unsupported by any structure, and there is a hole in the wall underneath them, adding a sense of danger and instability to the image. This emphasizes the feeling of emotional instability that the person is experiencing and suggests that they are in a precarious position.
Overall, the canvas "Profound Sorrow" is a powerful expression of the human experience of pain and sadness. The distressed wall, surreal elements, and unreachable platform all work together to suggest that these emotions can often feel overwhelming and impossible to escape. The platform and doorway offer a symbol of hope, but the person may need to find a way to lift their head and move forward in order to access it.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
