More Canvas Configurations

January 18, 2012

Canvas grouping, 14 x 35"

This is another example of canvases that have been combined into one unit. As soon as I put these together, they sold to a collector in New York.

I find it fun and interesting to add dimension to an otherwise flat presentation.

    This is wonderful Martha! Is each one a separate canvas and you attached them all together? How on earth did you do that?

    Thanks for sharing and glad it sold! 🙂

      Itaya, I just arranged them so that there was enough contact between the wood stretcher bars of the stacked canvases to put in screws through two stretchers from the back, and in a way that looked pleasing to me. I used a drill with a screw driver bit and drove slender drywall screws into them from the back. I put at least two screws through each stretcher for stability.

    Congratulations on your sale Martha and what a great idea! They are stunning each on their own but take on a whole new feeling put together like this.

      I’m glad, Sandra! I’ll bet you can come up with some interesting ideas with your old canvases.

    Love the whole polyptych concept, the most I’ve worked with is 3 but I hope to explore polys further!

      Bren, I’m thinking that glue would work fine for affixing a small canvas to a larger one as well. This actually has my gears turning once again.
