Hilary Bower Framing Project
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Hilary Bower over the course of the past year or so. Bower is a textile and relief artist. She explores the ideas of mark making on reused surfaces and working further into them and adding other materials to accentuate the feeling of the absence.
Bower wanted us to develop a single framing design that could be used across the board with any of the pieces. We came up with a simple white deep rebate grainy frame, with the work floating in the centre on 5 mm foam core, with a 60mm acid free off white mount card and the frame fitting with a 19mm grainy spacer. The frames were all fitted with 2mm Krystall Superclear glass which has a lower iron content than standard glass, and so is clearer and has less tint.
