When seeing the Andrew Wyeth Show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art several years ago, not only was I enraptured with the paintings, but completely overwhelmed with the effect that each unbelievably special custom frame had on the work; elevating it to a more magical level.
In my own practice I've been through several episodes of how to more perfectly frame a new painting and I can tell you that framing from scratch is pretty tricky and yet oh so rewarding. There's noting like a "artist's frame" to compliment a work.
And so it was a smile-smearing moment to come across this french art collective named KOLKOZ who, for this particular project make the frames (themselves) the work of art. How DID they do it so well ? haha
You'll find more examples Here.
