Big Black Frames
I just saw this article on painter/sculptor Neil Jenny who makes works about ideas - conceptual in many respects - yet still has a real sense of craft. One of the most interesting aspects of his works are the black frames which he makes himself. In fact he prefers to think of his works as sculture rather than paitings.





They are very reminiscent of the black frames often used to display 17th century Dutch paintings.



(Well they weren't always black...)
