finessed — modern artistry





In this, the digital age, the concept of antiquity feels almost mythical. This great era of information has brought about untold benefits – namely, an ability to collect, compile and archive all human endeavour with robotic accuracy. Since the turn of the century, our ability (not to mention proclivity) to consume and catalogue information – film, music, art – has given rise to its production.

New formats have also arisen: a new school of digital art and photography. This is a wonderful thing, but what does the digitised nature of the format mean for our own antiquity? It’s a peculiar word to use when referring to the present. I suppose, for something to qualify as an antique or artefact of our times, it has to have presence.

Finessed works with acclaimed artists and photographers to lift their creations from an abstract, digital world and render them in a tangible space. This art, that offers just as much emotional weight as their forbears – perhaps even more now, considering their freshness – is reframed to reflect their poignancy. Finessed gives these established artists a platform and presence worthy of their creative output.

Further to rendering art onto exquisite canvas, Finessed also offers a bespoke framing service. A selection of hand-finished wooden frames (natural oak, open grain black, and open grain white); as well as matte black and matte bronze aluminium framing is available.
