Picture Framing for Sydney and the Floating Frame

Stephanie Campanella - Monday, June 04, 2018

Because picture framers in Sydney are surrounded by creative clients, there is always new ground being broken in the exhibition and presentation of art, photography, and sports memorabilia. Our clients here at Amarisco Picture Framing are often searching for the next great method of displaying their coveted art, and contrary to popular beliefs, picture framing in Sydney is still evolving.

One of the most exciting new methods of framing has recently been developed, primarily for use by stretched canvas, but with potential for use across the field. Sunken, or floating frames, have found a home in many fields, and their novel look has been making waves across the industry.

This framing style incorporates an edgeless piece, mounted on a black background, set in a coverless frame, with a gap between the edge of the canvas and the sides of the frame. It projects a standalone quality to the canvas, letting it be viewed more clearly and distinctly from the black background of the frame, rather than the often-pale walls on which it would normally be mounted.

Floating framing draws the eye towards the depth of the image in question. It allows it to stand out more vividly and clearly, right to the very edge and beyond, without sacrificing the safety of a piece by making it purely frame-free. Picture framers in Sydney often look to this method for pieces with a vertical aspect they want to emphasise.

Quite simply, it provides a new method of making a piece stand out from the wall. For more information on how this style of framing can change the way that you display your art, contact your friends at Amarisco Picture Framing in Sydney for a chat.
