The paintings of Roberto Pagliarulo, although modern, have a distinct classical element making them congruent with traditional frame shapes. His most recent work takes inspiration from Italian landscape and culture, often including a mythical quality, drawing the viewer into a captivating perceptual experience.
The frames we made for Roberto's paintings reflect his union of contemporary and classical: the designs chosen are traditional yet simple; modern yet including shapes found on older styles of framing.
His confident use of colour means frames with a painted finish are a fitting choice. The designs chosen allow for the creation of clear, bold areas of colour to successfully frame the image.
For this oil of Hercules we enhanced the richness of royal blue with the addition of gilding along the inner section, whilst keeping the frieze a flat off white.
