The signature “Wavy” frames & canvases are unmistakable characteristics of Barton artworks.
Created by Steve in 1999, the purpose of the Wavy frame is to enhance the sense of movement in the paintings by extending the wavelike feel to the frame itself. Together, the frame and painting invite the viewer into the art. The paintings’ vivid colors and deep texture combine with the soft waves of the frame to create a stunning piece of art.
Along with the Wavy frame we also make a Gallery Wrap which is a wavy canvas that starts at the wall. Steve developed the Gallery Wrap from the idea of having the painting emerge from the wall from which it hangs. Like the Wavy Frame the Gallery Wrap adds a sculptural dynamic to the artwork that is unlike any other.
Every one of Steve’s paintings
has its own look and feel.
To match each painting we have made several different styles of the Wavy Frame. Each style offers a tone that can accommodate any of Steve’s paintings but also blend into any interior. From the rich Dark Stained Wavy Frame to the unique texture of the Light Bamboo Wavy Frame.
