The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. -William Faulkner

“I chose this because the frame really added to the artwork but needed a mat to not clash with the artwork (compete for attention). I was going to go with a Burgandy under the grey mat however it also competed too much so I went with 2″ basic grey mat with the frame. -Pineapple T.”

“I thought that double framing it would give it double impact and the gloss frame is so much crisper than a mount board. Plus the glass sits between the two frames which gives it extra depth. Hope you like it as much as I do! -Claire D (Double framed, wow!)”

Weekend Features: Framed Art Phenomena 4

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…

“Already an instant classic, Struzan’s “Frankenstein” rests comfortably it its dark-spiny framed lair. It’s of special note to point out that this particular print is #1 out of 325. WOW!”

“Perfect ornate antique frame for this classic looking piece. Framed by James Ashton at Brampton Picture Framing, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK. The frame blends in so well with the French-styled artwork, letting the orange colored dress of the main image pop out.”

“Frankenstein” by Drew Struzan

Mondo had it’s “Mondo Mystery Movie” tonight at the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, CA. And with a milestone achievement, they hooked up with legendary poster artist Drew Struzan and released the much anticipated “Frankenstein” screenprint. This print is a 15″ x 36″ 21-color Screenprint, with an edition size of 325, signed and numbered, and cost $285. The detail of this print is impressive and the number of colors is staggering. Only around 75 prints were sold tonight, and the remaining prints will likely go online for sale at a later undisclosed time.

The interview with Struzan and Justin of Mondo was entertaining and insightful, with Struzan coming off as sagacious, satirical, and witty. Yet kind, humbled and appreciative at the same time. My favorite quote of the night came from an audience question that asked him what his favorite poster of his was. Of which he answered:

“That’s a very difficult question. I guess that’s because people must live off their favorites. As a creator, I can’t do that. If I had a favorite, then I’d become redundant because I’d keep trying to repeat what I’d like best. So I always think the best one and my favorite, will be the next one…until the next one, and that keeps me growing and moving forward..”- Drew Struzan

Another interesting tidbit of info during the interview came when Struzan spilled the beans that he may be doing other pieces with Mondo in the future. Wow!

As for the movie, Frankenstein (1931), it was fun to revisit this Hollywood classic after being seasoned these days with modern cinema and its CGI-overdose. This 1931 version of Frankenstein is iconic and will always be associated with Hollywood during its early heydays.

After the movie, Justin updated us on the MMM showing in October (7,8,9) at the New Beverly. Tickets are $75 per ticket/movie, with 2 movies shown per day at around 7:00pm & 9:00pm intervals. Tickets are planned to go on sale on Tuesday, September 13 around 12pm-3pm PST somewhere HERE. Keep a close keep on Justin’s Twitter for more updates.

And now for a close look at the “Frankenstein” print:
