Frame Style

Clive a keen member of the National Autistic Society art group, Artrack. He enjoys a range of artistic styles and techniques, but especially acrylics.  Crosses and Patterns was painted during Clive's abstract period, using acrylics on canvas. Clive uses art to communicate how he sees the world; how he sees and appreciates the finer details of the bigger, every-day things that surround him.

Crosses and Patterns is presented on a 38mm stretched canvas within a modern, deep, picture frame. The addition of the frame around the canvas creates a gallery-style piece of art, quite distinct to a plain canvas or traditional framing behind glass. The frame also sits approximately 5mm from the edge of the canvas helping creating a floating border.

Stunning artwork that’s beautifully framed

I love this picture! It’s sits above my desk in my home office and it puts a smile on my face every time I’m about to start work. I love the green hue it has and that reminds me that there can still be some calm in the midst of all the busyness that is created by the crosses and other patterns - a great metaphor for life!

On a more practical note, I was a bit unsure about the black frame as most of my other pictures have traditional frames in neutral colours, with glass, but because the picture is so bright, the black frame really sets it off and it also looks good in an office environment where my computer monitor is also black. The abstract design looks great on a canvas too but it might look a bit unfinished if it didn’t have any frame around it at all and so I think the way it has been mounted works really well.

All in all, I’m really pleased to have Clive’s work on my walls and the fact that it supports artists with disabilities is a great bonus.
