I’ve been working through how I intend to display the couple pieces I’ll be doing up for inclusion in the PRIDE art show mid-June. Working in a digital medium, as I do, it’s very different when it comes time to talk about print mediums and mounting. I’ve got a couple ideas for how to display the pieces I’ve chosen – but we’ll see.
In an instance like this, where there is a strong message that is conveyed by an art piece, mounting isn’t as simple as gallery wrap canvas, giclee, frame, or foam board. The mount has to maintain the truth that is being spoken, but not overrun it with a message of it’s own. It’s trickier than one might think. And to be honest, I’m putting as much thought into the mounting of these photographs as I did into their creation and capturing.
Time is sneaking up far too quickly for my comfort level though. Very soon there’ll be no time left at all, and I’ll be in a panic. LOL It really is getting to be crunch time. Time to figure out measurements, and processes. Time to begin piecing it all together. I’m excited, are you?
