At our Frames and Stretchers Studios in New York City, New Haven Connecticut and Wynwood Miami, we are always thrilled to support emerging and innovative artists, by creating the best custom canvas stretchers and framing projects in any size or preference desired.
One recent project we worked on was creating large scale interlocking stretchers for the New York artist Tschabalala Self. In their featured article in "Artist Tschabalala Self Wants You to See Black Figures Take Up Space" (Quote Courtesy, Teen Vogue, Oct., 2019) this up and coming artist is named as one of the top contemporary artists under 30 to watch.
Having exhibited and sold artwork internationally, artist Tschabalala Self discusses their upbringing and texile influence growing up as the youngest of five brothers and sisters in an artistic family in Harlem. Often portraying female nudes in domestic spheres, a kind of tableux that offers glimpses into the of sumptuous ordinary and private lives of women, their artwork ampifies black figures and reflects black voices and experiences in their work through the lens of portraiture.

As our team is made of artists and designers working in the field of conservation framing, it is always highly rewarding for us to listen to our client's requests and preferences and respond with expert archival solutions. We deeply respect and honor the trust placed in us provide your artwork with a custom, sturdy, and handcrafted canvas stretchers or custom conservation framing, increasing the longevity of the artwork itself and protecting its future.
Using dry kilned basswood for our custom interlocking stretchers allows the construction and finish to be the best archival museum-grade quality. We choose the dry kilning process for each piece of wood we use in our interlocking stretchers to ensure that moisture will be dried from the wood, to prevent from any future molding or mildew over time that could result in contact with the canvas or staples.
