I have to admit, I use to not be a fan of handmade paper art. There, I said it! I lived the 80’s paper art crazy and have been traumatized ever since, lol. But note those two keys words, “use to”.
This artist uses such a dense deep black & mixes in such bold strong colors to contrast, I love it! This is the second time I have had the honor to frame their work.
I think I threw the client when I suggested white on white. She just stopped and thought for a minute, then said Wow, I hadn't even considered that. With such bold and dense color, white on white just disappears. The colors explode forward and don’t get boxed in by a hard exterior line. The angulation of the paper required we find a deep rabbit frame to contained it without hitting the glazing. With the density of the black, I suggested we go with Museum glass to knock out any reflection. Really need to see all the texture within! Floated on cotton rag matting with custom, super deep spacers to hold it’s space.
Love it! Would definitely hang this on my walls!!
