Custom Handcrafted Wood Frame & Installation
by Frames and Stretchers
Recently our Frames and Stretchers Studio in NYC had the honor of creating the best custom handcrafted wood picture frame for artwork by Richard Serra.
In all of our projects, we offer the best quality conservation services to every artwork, with utmost respect for the specific materials, archival design and esthetic goals in mind. Our Custom Picture Framing and Canvas Stretching Studios in Lower East Side, New York / Wynwood, Miami / New Haven, Connecticut are ready to speak with you for the best custom framing, canvas stretching, and art delivery services that can custom tailored exactly to your wishes.
Custom Framing and Installation of Richard Serra Artwork
With Handcrafted Wood Frame & Wood Cleat
Private Collection, NYC
For this large scale artwork on paper measuring 76 ½” x 67”, we created a handcrafted wood picture frame with a heavy duty wood strainer with integrated cleat for the perfect hanging. This strainer design perfectly balances the weight of this piece and seals the frame all together, while the Optium Museum Plexiglass protects the artwork on paper from light exposure, fingerprints, and other damages. The paper itself is mounted on acid-free museum board in a type of mounting technique called island floating. Here, the softly ripped deckled edges of the paper are highlighted and more pronounced to appear floating over a hidden platform underneath. This creates a sculptural breathing space between the paper, the foundation, and the glazing. We use only the best conservation techniques for archival picture frames in NYC, Miami and New Haven Frames and Stretchers Studios!

The Optium Museum Plexiglass allows the artwork to have the best UV protection to prevent from sun damage, fingerprints and dust, while also having anti-reflective benefits for the most seamless, glare-free and invisible look possible. All our framing are sealed in a temperature controlled environment, for the best protection against humidity and moisture defense.
Optium Museum Plexiglass is the recommended choice for larger artworks to provide the best UV Protective Glazing and Anti-Reflection

Our Art Delivery Van and team of expert installers will be more than happy to assist with your next art transportation, delivery or installation project.
We were very honored to be able to give this artwork the best conservation from start to finish. From the first moment we receive artwork we create a condition report to assess the artwork’s materials in depth, remarking on previous mounting techniques and any imperfections in how the artwork has aged over time. The artist plays a large factor in determining the longevity of the piece, by how materials are applied and what paper is chosen for the artwork. These drawings with Richard Serra’s thick black oilstick were created on handmade paper, signed in a special edition by Richard Serra.

For Richard Serra Drawing Series

The American-born artist Richard Serra is perhaps best known for their large scale drawings with black paintstick (compressed oil paint, wax, and pigment) and their iconic interactive steel sculptures that allow audience members to walk through, beckoning participants to become more sensitive to their surroundings and scale. Throughout Serra’s career he consistently turned to drawing as part of his artistic process, engaging with object empathy beyond two and three dimensional surfaces.
