It's always a pleasure when a collector brings us an artwork from one of our favorite artists to frame. We recently got the chance to design the custom framing for a painting by Scherezade Garcia. The painting on deckle-edge paper was floated with mulberry paper hinges and rice paste. The color palette and brush strokes lent themselves perfectly to a softly curved natural maple frame with contrasting walnut splines. We accented the molding with 22K gold leaf rubbed to reveal touches of the red clay base. The art was exquisitely mounted on archival mat board with custom matching mat board spacers to distance the art from the glass. Finally, the project was finished using UV protective and non-reflective Museum glass.

This project brought together the aesthetic eye of the collector, the talent of the artist and the skills of our design and production team. It was another successful collaboration with the team at Quattro Frameworks. We were also happy to offer delivery to the collector’s home via our partners at Art Delivery Van.
