New Wave Frame
The surf has been relatively flat this week so I thought I would take this time to work on a custom frame design for my surf art. I have always enjoyed coming up with new frame designs to complete my art work. For my surf art, a unique frame design was created to compliment the aesthetics of surfing, reflecting the attributes of the water, power, grace, skill and technical development of the sport. In place of a matted image, the artwork is positioned and spaced between two transparent pieces of plexi glass (one clear and one blue) and encased with a deep metal frame. The transparent blue tint behind the art creates an illusion of water; clear, translucent, and calming. The German silver metallic frame gives it a sleek, sporty, stream line look that reflects the speed and advanced technology of modern day surfing.
