As far back as 1997 a Swiss artist came up with and produced for exhibition a series of small signed edition pieces of artwork the size of commercial trading cards at 5 x 4 inches outer size with an aperture 3.5" x 2.5".
The concept behind these creations was simple enough.. super small almost minatures allows for arelatively low cost purchase and a way of circulating image svery very quickly amongst like minded people.
Although today 21 years on the original concept of "art trading" might have varied slightly the purchase of these mounts cut fractionally smaller than the standard size to allow a tiny overlap is the perfect way to enhance, protect and display these minature works of art.
So this is your chance . Drag out the latent artist in you and try to create one of these marvellous magnificent minature works of art.
We see them in our workshops created in watercolour, oil, spray paint, collage . With a little creativity and not a great deal of time it's easy to experiment and try lots of different ideas... then mount them for display with a Carters Mounts ..and perhaps give them as a gift to a person in your life and make them smile..
Small is definitely beautiful..ours can be supplied with a back and a bag.. you just supply the artwork.. great fun !
