Choose the best frame for your abstract canvas art
When you go to a gallery to buy abstract canvas art, you will find that some pieces are framed whilst others are not. It really depends upon the artist whether to frame his or her work or not, but it also depends upon you whether to frame the piece of abstract canvas art that you will be buying or not.
There are several advantages that framing can do to a painting. For one, the right frame can enhance the attractiveness of the abstract canvas artwork. For another, a frame can provide protection to the painting itself. However, it must be the right frame. Or else you may end up ruining the painting and minimising its visual appeal. How do you choose the right frame for your abstract canvas art? Here are six tips.
- In selecting a frame for your painting, choose one that complements it. Any complimentary frame is enough to enhance the paintings beauty and to highlight the best features of the same. A contrasting one, on the other hand, may work sometimes but may also steal the attention away from the painting.
- Pick out the right materials for your framing your painting. Naturally, you would need acid-free matting and backings so that your artwork will remain protected through the years. Glass may also work, if it reflects UV rays that will cause your painting to fade, although it is rarely used for paintings on canvas.
- Most of the time, we are tempted to coordinate the frame of our abstract canvas art with the kind of furniture with which we are grouping it. Whilst it may seem like the wise choice, it is best to avoid getting that done. You may end up moving your picture to another spot or replacing it with another. Thus, choose a frame that is neutral and will go with any kind of furniture.
