WHAT IS HAND FINISHED FRAMING?

Hand finished frames give a unique character to an original painting as an almost infinite combination of profiles, finishes and colours are possible.

Standard framing involves cutting and joining pre-finished mouldings to make the frame.

Hand finished framing requires a skilled craftsman who will first select a suitable frame profile which is cut and joined to make a bare wood frame.  The frame is then finished using a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials.  Depending on the finish chosen a frame may take many days to complete as component layers are built up to achieve the desired result. 

The result is a completely bespoke frame made to uniquely complement the original painting.  To this end, no two hand finished frames are ever exactly the same.

For 'Charaxes Imperialis' a 2.4cm wide frame has been selected with an off-white painted finish.  The frame style is called a 'tray' frame.  This is because the painting sits inside the frame with a small gap between the edge of the painting and the frame.  The front of the frame is level with the surface of the painting rather than the frame covering the front edge of the painting as is more typical.  This allows the frame to provide a border for the image without encroaching or dominating it.

BIOGRAPHY

Odile Kidd demonstrates a natural intelligence over the wide range of mediums she commands. Her attention to detail and her ability to see into the soul of the subjects she paints gives her work an emotional depth that leaves you feeling as though each piece is as much an homage to the subject's imperfections, as it is to the miracle of it's existence.
