Framed Art Phenomena
When choosing the correct frame for your art piece, it’s almost a joint collaboration with the artist itself. The artists work is like the naked soul and the frame/matte is like the outer clothing. The wrong frame, and the piece can suffer. But when everything is done well, the results can often be like an epiphany…
“Loud and boisterous image of late-60s rocker, Jimi Hendrix ala Choe-style is tempered by a simple black frame to give it a classic, ready for the gallery look.”
“This is probably my favorite Emek gig poster. I like how the extra-wide matte and frame opens up the image of the whale. It adds to the illusion that the whale really is floating out there”
“Fairytale will always be a special print to me because it’s the print that got me into print/poster collecting. Db23 did it right in mounting this without a matte in my opinion. It doesn’t need one as the image is perfectly balanced with the nice ornate gold frame around it.”
“There’s no better way to display this Saber print than to float it. A pair of Sabers, even better!”
