Recently our client came into the shop with a piece bought at Frieze Art Fair entitled, “Receipts,” which featured different receipts from around the world.
This piece has a bold contemporary feel, and we wanted the framing to have the same feeling. We designed a tall cap frame with a white face and white wash ash wood sides. We chose ash specifically, as opposed to maple, because it has a strong linear wood grain that speaks well to the lines in the piece itself.
We floated the piece 1-½” all around on a simpatico white float board, and we also gave it a ¼” lift from underneath to make it more of an object.
