Well, why don’t you display the piece “unstretched”?

I recently had a conversation with a client about shipping the work to her on the rolled canvas, but not wrapped around the frame.  In recent months I have seen a trend with artwork.  The work is displayed “unstretched” or not wrapped around the wooden frame.  This is much easier for someone like me who lives in London to ship to someone in the US (or wherever), as it can easily fit in a tube and it keeps the cost down (added bonus). I love the raw look of it, and think it can add something unique to the room.  Here are some excellent examples of works displayed “unstretched”. Hannah and I have left one of our paintings without a frame, The Heart, and depending how it goes may leave many more!
