Floating Robert Rauschenberg

This is a collage/mixed media piece by avant-gardist Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008). It’s 14″ x 10″. We used a maple Floater frame at 3/8″ wide and 2-1/2″ deep, in maple with liming wax, a white-tinted paste wax.

Floating disconnects the piece. No other framing approach makes sense with this kind of work.

  1. Yep, splines is what I meant when I said “keys”.

    Thanks for the link – it perfectly illustrates what is going on.

    Of course one thing leads to another – how do you accurately cut such deep and narrow slots for the spline? A master with a Japanese saw? A power tool? Curious minds need to know.
