Aboriginal Canvas Stretching Perth
Collecting Aboriginal artworks on canvas is incredibly popular and Gallery 360 offer professional canvas stretching in Perth to enhance your original Aboriginal or Indigenous art on canvas. We have extensive experience with all Aboriginal Art canvas types, including linen. Before we start, we check the artwork’s suitability for canvas stretching; for example, if the canvas has not been primed properly before being painted, there could be a possibility of cracking which could potentially damage your artwork if it is stretched incorrectly. Then our team will choose the most appropriate canvas stretcher bars to complete the job.
Oversize Aboriginal canvas art is an area Gallery 360 is renowned for. Canvas Stretching of oversized Aboriginal Art requires special knowhow and expertise, to be certain these artworks are correctly supported and stretched correctly. Other picture framers often refer clients to us for their large Aboriginal canvas stretching.
Sometimes Aboriginal canvas art is painted right to the edge of the canvas without any borders to allow the canvas to be wrapped around the stretcher bar. Gallery 360 use museum quality conservation materials to line the edges of the canvas, to allow the Aboriginal canvas artwork to be stretched without compromising the image. The canvas stretcher bars we use are solid meranti or cedar and not susceptible to drying out or warping (preventing the need for re-stretching in the future). Our stretcher bars are naturally insect resistant, further protecting your artworks from dust mites and other insects.
For extra protection Gallery 360 can provide additional protection by fitting a backing to the canvas using a polyethylene backing material that will protect against:
- dust accumulation and subsequent damage from dust mites and other insects,
- vibration during transportation that may cause cracking to the paint.
- water damage from damp environments.
Aboriginal and Indigenous Canvas Framing Perth
You may like to consider adding a frame to the border of the stretched canvas to add style and substance to the image. Whether it is the minimalistic “Floater style” canvas frame or something to make the finished art look larger or to add substance, a framed canvas looks more “finished” when compared to just a stretched canvas. The team at Gallery 360 in Perth will show you alternative designs from our huge range of canvas framing options.
At Gallery 360 your canvas artwork is in experienced hands and will be stretched with due care and attention to its unique requirements. We complete the canvas stretching by adding our exclusive range of hangers that enable your canvas to sit flush and straight on the wall. If security of your artwork is an issue, we can supply security fittings to your canvas framing that enable your canvas to be locked onto the wall.
