Framed Art Phenomena
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!)”
“Red seems to go well with Rhys Cooper posters and this is one looks great. Rhys is killing it this past year!”
“White on white frame/mat setup is always a sure thing for Miss Bugs art prints. This duo of prints owned by Mandy must look great together hung up against some white walls.”
“Got the frame at a thrift store and cut the mats myself. Really wanted to go over the top on this piece, like something you’d see hanging up in a looney Grandmas’s house. -Mark E.”
“These two similar frame ups by different artists look great. I think that the off-white/cream mat really compliments and adds a soft warmth to these 2 already organic images.”
