This threat inspired by 2 awesome posts: "Show us your Witco" and Sushiman's "Are Shag's paintings all a bit different than prints". Please see the links to both posts below.

In Sushiman's post he was contemplating wether to purchase a Shag serigraph. Some people like the simple framing and some like a more extravagant framing. This is what sparked my interest. I would love to see how people frame their Shag serigraphs, original paintings, and even show postcards! Since I started the post I'll go first.

Sorry, bad joke. Yours is actually a very lovingly and tastefully framed collection. I am sure Duke Carter and Holden will be thrilled to see their swizzle sticks are frame-worthy now, I don't see why not, they are two fine examples of the art form.

Here is my Shag, framed by Josh Agle himself. Though by today's standards the thin-bamboo-with-no-matting look might seem somewhat simplistic and passe, in 1996 it was the height of style and rarity!:



I myself decorated my house in the multi-layered clutter look, though I agree that Shag art might work best in sparse and clean modernism environs.

Well I just love shag!




And some day, I'll get the real thing.

Awesome and very tasteful display . Super thread . Mahalo .

Still haven't snagged my first Shag , but I'm working on it .

I hate to say it , but whoever answers emails at Shag Corp. must be asleep on the job or inept or both . I have inquired by email several times in the past week and never got a reply .

Sven,

Wow...thanks for sharing. That painting is awesome! I love the astronauts and other toys outside the painting. They compliment it and feel like it's part of it.

I do like the simple bamboo framing too. I think it's fun to frame the early shag stuff in a simple framing and go balls out on the latter ones. BTW, what is the title of the painting.

Sushiman,

You have to post your "Thinking has been done" serigraph once it's framed.

I ended up not buying THE THINKING HAS BEEN DONE print . Once I discovered how different the print looked from the original painting I lost interest . In my eyes dullsville colorwise in comparison .

The first Shag prints I had framed I used colored borders, but then I switched to all white matting. My thought is the colors in Shag's prints are so vibrant and rich, they don't need the colored borders. Below are some of my print from my "Shag room". Soon I'll take some photos of my originals to show how those are framed. Sorry these pics aren't great.

OMG...that truly is a SHAG room. I couldn't tell where the prints ended and the room began because you furniture, wall paint and curtains matched the prints. I can't wait to see your originals. I totally see your point about the simple framing. I just purchased a Shag serigraph and I'm still deciding on what type of framing to do. I guess that's why I was inspired to write this post. I hope more people follow and post more pics.

Whoa, those are some pretty awesome rooms Monitors and Tiki Riviera! I'm pretty jealous, but I just can't fit anything shoebox sized apartment. If I put up a Shag, I won't have anywhere to hang my shirt!

Hey Paranoid,

You can walk around NEKKID around the house, whilst you admire you SHAG. Try it. It's very liberating. LOL.

tiki-riviera,

That is truly impressive and completely fantastic!

Here is my humble contribution:


Like you commented about some of your pieces,
I also used to frame with corresponding colors in the mats,
but that feels too "Granimals" to me now. Hanging sets of prints in
black frames with white mats make them all seem to be part of a series,
at least to me. Also, I collect other artists aside from Shag, and it
ties all the work together cohesively.

It also puts the focus on the work and not the framing.

Originals are one of a kind, and one of a kind framing makes sense
for those, but especially prints that have white borders for the signature
and numbering...it just seems so clean, elegant, and absent of noise to
go black and white.

Also, I will defer to Shag how to frame his prints...see here:

Hi Gromit,

Wow...I've always been a fan of "Welcome to your Glorious Lifestyle" print and that is amazing. I seriously hope Shag makes his future prints large like that. I don't mind paying more for the effect. I was fortunate enough to see the original at BSFA and just had a blast getting lost in the painting.

I'm also beginning to see that the plain white matting with the simple black frame seems to be the more popular choice.

The Monitors,

I hope they release more large prints, too!
One huge Shag serigraph is NOT enough!
Beside, why should the Aussies get the only giant print?
Clearly, the sales of "Welcome to Our Glorious Lifestyle" have
to show Shagmart there is a demand for some truly huge Shag prints.
("The Extraordinary Evening" came close, but still sold out quickly.)

As for framing, I think what Link at Frame Fetish creates is amazing.
I can also see why, in a Tiki-filled room, that has to be the more "fun" choice,
and works better for keeping the lounge look going. As clean and elegant as
white matting and a black frame is, it might also read as "sterile" in a
full-tilt Tiki lounge.

best,

Gromit Fan

Below are my two originals. The first was a commission piece my sister had framed. The second came framed from the Show at Copro Nason gallery. The way Shag has his originals framed I believe really enhances the painting and makes the colors pop. In contrast I like the prints with plain white borders, go figure. Sorry again about the poor quality of the pics..
