This series was born out of my obsession of collecting picture frames (lets not talk about how many are scattered around my studio) and a vast desire not to stretch a canvas that day. Frames, so much of the time, are the last piece to be chosen for a work of art. Here I'm using them to dictate the direction of the work. Contrasting traditional with abstraction, simple with complexity. Pushing the boundaries of what is normally thought of as a garnish and bringing it into the whole.
