Artist's Frame

About

Ever since the elaborate, customized mountings of Gothic altarpieces, frames have played a transformative role in the creation and presentation of artworks. Though traditionally frames are chosen by curators and collectors, artist’s frames are often designed by the artists themselves and are integrated with the artwork from its inception. No longer a quiet border between artwork and wall, these frames serve as extensions of the artwork and can be closely linked to a work’s subject matter. Contemporary artists like Fabrice Samyn and Dianna Molzan have challenged the historical role of the frame, presenting empty frames as artworks in their own right.
