Gauntlet Collection Products

Gauntlet Canvas Collection strives to provide the highest quality materials and craftsmanship in all of our products which are made using high quality archival materials. Our canvas artwork comes professionally gallery wrapped, stretched over 1.5 inch wooden bars. Gauntlet Canvas Collection also works with each artist to extend their artwork to wrap around the edges of the frame. This unique process provides a superior product and greatly enhances the look of the print. The result is extremely close to an original work with clean lines and no visible staples once it is hung on your wall. Unlike other print methods, gallery wrapped canvases don’t require any costly framing.

I paint astronauts and, sometimes, dinosaurs. Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey was released in 1968, well before I was born, so I have no firsthand knowledge of how it was received. I don't know if people really believed we'd be living in space in 2001, if we'd have robot butlers and flying cars, geodesic lunar homes, and genetically reconstituted dinosaurs helping or eating us. But from Lost in Space to the Jetsons to Jurassic Park, it seems that popular culture has fostered this space-age perception of the future. Generations raised on these TV shows, movies, comic books, and novels are now grown and living in a future filled with mini vans, Starbucks, iPads, and Hip Hop videos. In many ways, the year 2001 failed to live up to expectations. And yet the world today is peculiar in ways unimagined in 1957, when Sputnik was launched, or in 1968, when 2001 was released, or even in 1994, at the dawn of the internet. The present is in fact a very unusual place, and it's strangest in the ubiquity of things we take for granted. The astronaut in my paintings is simply here to explore the present.
