We offer a high quality framing service for all of our
products. However this will increase the lead time. All of our frames are
custom-built to each individual painting. Many of our in stock products are already framed.
With most of our orders, we let our framing team choose the
frame that would best complement the painting. However, if you wish to make a
suggestion to the colour or material of the frame, then please contact us
straight away so that we can instruct the framing team.
‘Gallery Wrapped’ or ‘stretching’ is the process whereby the
canvas is stretched onto wooden bars. The canvas is then held in place with
staples on the back. The artwork can then be hung on the wall or can then be
framed. This is a modern contemporary form of presentation and is a popular
framing option for the modern ‘POP’ art pieces.
Although each art piece is treated with a UV coating to
preserve the colours, you should never expose your canvas to direct sunlight.
Prints should be cleaned by lightly brushing with a feather duster. Never use
any household cleaning products. Prints should be kept in a room where a
temperature does not exceed 30 degrees Celsius and should not fall below 15
degrees Celsius. The humidity should not be below 40% or above 60%.
Giclee is a fine art digital reproduction technique involving
the process of spraying a high resolution image onto a canvas. This technique
requires the original artwork to be scanned to an extremely high resolution.
This technique involves the same process as giclee on canvas
whereby the original artwork is digitally reproduced. The only difference is
that Giclee on paper involves the image being sprayed onto paper rather than
canvas. Some artist’s creative vision involves a non-textured background such
as using a high grade water colour paper instead of a textured canvas.
A lithograph is a painting method that involves just four
colours; blue, red, yellow and black. Four aluminium plates are dampened by
water and then each of the four colours are transferred onto the plates.
The ink adheres to the image area, the water to the non-image
area. The image on the aluminium plate
is then transferred onto a rubber blanket creating a negative image, and then
the rubber blanket is rolled across the paper to create the image.
Serigraph is an efficient and labour intensive way to create
art. The original artwork is used as a guide. Each colour is carefully
separated into different elements and is burned onto separate screens. This is
a slow process and requires a lot of skill. Each colour is then screened onto
the canvas one-by-one. Each individual colour must dry before the next colour
is applied. The ink is physically pushed through openings on a screen creating
the same shapes as the original artwork.
