Antique frames are filled with their own content using custom molds built from digital processes. (Ongoing)
Currently partnering with Saintill Lijsten (Haarlem, NL) to create one-of-a-kind pieces from frames in their private collection. To see a complete catalog of works with prices and process shots, please click here.
The first piece shown here, “1840 German Neo-Rococo” (42.5 x 34.5 x 4cm; Gold Leaf, Wood, Paint, Composite), was completed in September 2012 and now resides in the collection of Hampus Lindwall. Process shots can be viewed here.
The second piece shown, "1810 Empire" (78 x 51 x 5.5cm; Gold Leaf, Wood, Paint, Composite), was completed in April 2013 and is currently for sale. Process shots can be viewed here.
The third piece is a digital concept from the frame which houses "The Adoration of the Magi" by Peter Paul Rubens, at Musée du Louvre in Paris, France. This piece is for sale as a digital download from The File Arts for $20. All proceeds of the sale will go toward the building of a third actualized frame from the catalog.
All subsequent works in this slideshow are additional digital concepts from frames at the Louvre.
