On a trip to the famous Louvre in Paris, photographer and artist Taylor Holland found himself more drawn in by the highly ornate frames around the art than with the art itself. This got him thinking about a project that would challenge “the viewer’s notion not only of what art is, but the viewer’s own perceptions about where to find and appreciate art in various settings such as the Louvre.” Thus was born Fra[mes].
All of the frames you see were filled in digitally, but Holland hopes to give the project a more real air soon. He’s partnering with the Dutch company Saintill Lijsten to try and create a few prototypes that will consist of antique frames filled with custom made, hand-crafted molds. Head over to Holland’s website to see more.
