Ask three different framers to define "conservation framing" and you will likely get three different answers. The important consideration is that framing has a dual purpose. In addition to providing a means of presentation, it must provide for the protection of the artwork. It follows that the framing and the frame must do no harm and it must be possible to reverse everything done in the framing process. In other words, it must be that the artwork can be removed from the frame and retain all of its original attributes.
As might be expected, there are many ways to accomplish the objective and even varying degrees of protection often specific to the object being framed and the environment in which it will reside. At Absolute! we can help with these decisions to assure that your framing dollar is well spent
