More on Displaying Small Art
This is my newest collage. Yesterday I talked a little bit in the blog and in the comments about displaying small artworks. Here is another way to present small works. Your collage or other works on paper could be mounted to a gallery-wrap canvas or a block of wood. It might look something like this:
Another solution, of course, is to mat and frame your collage as we discussed before. Since collage usually has either an irregular edge or is mounted on a larger backing, it sometimes might not be desirable to place a mat with a smaller opening on top of it. In this case, it would be good to mat it, but with an opening that is larger than the collage. Like this:
This one doesn’t have the huge border like the one I showed yesterday, but is still effective. This shows what a 4×4 collage would look like with an 8×10 mat and frame.
I spent more time today solving some problems with my website that I caused when I uploaded many new works. Well, I don’t think I actually was the cause of the problem, but there was a glitch that had to get resolved. Today there are many more works on the site. I’m excited to have an organized way to showcase my most recent paintings and collages. I’ll keep adding to it. Take a look if you haven’t already. Your feedback is always welcome!
