Muriel Barclay Fringe Following, 2013 Oil on canvas 30” x 40”

By using a large, fluted frame that is heavily textured and toned with paint washes it is possible for the frame to mimic the artist’s mark making and brushwork, allowing the frame and canvas to become one. Helping create this harmony is the burnished 23.5ct gold leaf which complements the browns of the piano.
