Frames can be crucial to the experience we have of art. They not only enhance the way that the piece looks but can also play a key role in protecting it too. Some frames can even mean that the value of the artwork inside goes up when placed in it. The right frame is an extension of the piece of art that it sits around and should enhance and augment it - if you’re going to spend time and money on choosing beautiful pieces of art then it makes sense to ensure that the frame is worthy of your investment.
As well as enhancing artwork and also protecting it, the frame has a number of other key roles to play. Perhaps the most important of these is the way that the frame influences how the viewer perceives the art. For example, a frame can suggest value - especially if it has been beautifully carved or made from an unusual material - and can hint at exclusivity and status. The frame can also be used to express the personality of the individual who owns the art and echo artistic judgment and insight.
