Fine art on canvas or paper that's not properly protected can be damaged by light, temperature, acids, humidity, poor handling, insects and pollution. Good custom framing enhances the experience of art, and protects and preserves the work, as well as acting as a bridge between the environment and the art. It takes the viewer's attention off the surroundings and brings it into the image itself. Poor framing pulls attention away from the art and lessens its importance. An expertly done frame brings out the full beauty of the piece.
