Limited Edition Framed Canvas
The Limited Edition Framed Canvas is our Canvas Wraps finished with a black floater frame. These unique frames are so named because the illusion they create is that your artwork is "floating" within the frame instead of being covered by it — perfect for displaying our Canvas Wraps. Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Canvas Wraps are much like gallery wrapped canvas. Artwork is printed on a canvas material, stretched to fit a custom wooden frame, and attached to the wooden frame. As a result, all hardware used to secure the canvas is hidden and the artwork extends to all sides visible to the viewer. Made from our premium eco-friendly wood, Canvas Wraps create a classical way to preserve and present artwork. A simple French cleat system is provided to securely mount and display a Canvas Wrap. A multitude of durable surface finishes are offered to enhance artwork and provide UV protection and moisture resistance to a piece of artwork.
Artwork is mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick surface, finished with a beveled edge and given a ¾” deep backing to create a floating effect. The backing is recessed from the edge such that it is not easily seen. A simple French cleat system is provided to securely mount and display a Wall Plaque. The image is 100% protected UV Laminate. The product is rated for 125 years.
Made from our premium eco-friendly wood, a Coaster is a 4 x 4 dimensional wooden card that is a long-lasting way to preserve and present artwork. Art is mounted on an acid-free 3/8” thick surface and finished with a beveled edge. The Coaster is a completely finished product with a coated, black, moisture-resistant finish on the back to ensure art is fully protected and maintains a clean, high-quality appearance from front to back. In addition, there is room to add your personal sentiment to customize your artwork for any occasion. When finished expressing yourself, the Coaster fits into its own mailer, you attach the postage and mail it! Coaster can be used for promotions, coasters, thank you cards, or displayed as table top art pieces by inserting the enclosed dowel.
Carl Karni Bain (BAI) received his fine arts training at the California College of Arts and Craft in Oakland California with an emphasis on classical drawing and painting. He has exhibited extensively in, the San Francisco Bay area, North Carolina, New York, China, and Europe.
His work forms part of the permanent collection of the University of North Carolina, Charlotte and the Harrison Museum of African America Culture. His works can be found in private and domestic collections as well as internationally in Australia, Spain, England, Italy, China, France, Canada, Sweden, Holland, Ireland, and Germany.
David Gresalfi writes that BAI has made the concept of the mask his chosen vehicle for exploring the boundaries of abstraction and representational form. By reminding us of our earliest obsession with recognizing and reading faces, he asks: What is it that you want to see in this picture?
His figures and faces seem to lack exterior warmth, while retaining and communicating a powerful sense of mystery.
