Unique Floater Frames for Paintings
We recently framed a “Twombly-esque” painting on canvas in a unique floater frame. This frame pictured here is typically a cap frame, meaning it crops over the edge of the art, mat or glass. In this case, we added a floater base and build-up and made it into a floater frame for this unique work of art. The canvas is floating 1/4″ all around with an 1/8″ recess. The frame itself is a step frame in white gold with medium antiquing and blue clay underneath to tie into the blue of the painting. The repetitive steps in the frame pick up on the repetitive and continuous brush strokes in the piece. The frame and the art should look like a pair, like they belong together; and together they are a true partnership.
Thinking creatively and out-of-the-box in the framing industry is truly an asset, and in this case the client was pleased with the results.
