5 Foot Square Photo Print Frame

A couple years back, we tackled a huge project for a Chicago artist named Tony Orrico. Tony's brand of art is unique, in that he creates it as a performance too. I refer to him as The Human Spirograph, since he creates a series of circles using chunks of graphite, while lying prone on the drawing paper and moving his arms in arcs and his body in circles like a compass. It is unique, to say the least, and produces a very cool set of patterns. Tony did a large piece of work at one point, and had it photogaphed and printed out on a large format printer. I framed it for him in a frame 60 x 60 3/8. It is a heavy duty, matte white cap moulding from Studio Moulding, #ST23460, that is 1 5/8" wide on its face and 2 3/8" tall. This is a huge shadowbox frame, with 5/8" tall box strips. The art has been hinged to a piece of Rising mat board that started out as a sheet 60 x 104. The plexiglass is 3/16" thick to minimize bowing. It was a fun and challenging project. Check it out:
