It seems like so long ago, yet I vividly remember presenting a whole bunch of my framed photographs for SALA (South Australia Living Artist) festival in 2010 and 2016.
To ensure my artwork presented as best as possible, I purchased twenty 400mm x 500mm frames from Adelaide Photographic Wholesalers, plus had Atkins printed 20 of my favorite photographs. All up, about $1600.
But I had one slight problem with the frames: String on the reverse of the frames. As a consequence, it was all visible. See the photos for example.
Because of this I wanted to learn how to wire frames properly – and create a video showing how I learnt.
After much googling and youtubing, I discovered a few techniques. Then I did it myself. The video demonstrates it, mostly. I’ve only wired a few of my frames thus far, so for the next few frames I will re-video and ensure my fingers and hands are not covering the subject.
Now that my frames photographs will soon be displayed in the Kangaroo Island Gallery, I happily wired them – making them both stable and salable!
