About Colour Square

Our aim is to provide clients with simple contemporary framing and display solutions without compromising on design and function. Colour Square prides itself on being an approachable and customer focused business that has been a part of the Australian art industry for twenty-five years.

Conservation Framing

Our custom frames are made on site from sustainable Australian timbers. We are able to create specific mouldings in a selection of timber stains and sprayed colour options. Our mounting techniques are reversible so there are no alterations to the original artwork. We use materials that are acid free and have proven longevity. We are constantly striving to improve our products through the use of new materials and techniques.

Fine Art Stretchers

Stretchers

Since 1988 Colour Square has being providing stretchers in Hoop Pine and Western Red Cedar. All stretchers are custom-made in several profiles on site to client requirements. We supply stretchers for individual pieces as well as large collections for exhibitions and acquisitions.

Restretching

With the global art industry becoming increasingly mobile, linen and canvas artworks are frequently transported and stored without their display supports. At Colour Square we offer extensive re-stretching and stretching services. We stretch fine art on linen, canvas, knits, tapestries and paper. We also remove artworks from existing supports and can package the works appropriately for shipping within Australia and Internationally.

Belgian Linen

At Colour Square we stock a selection of Belgian Linen ranging from fine to coarse weaves. We specialise in traditional hand priming techniques in oil and acrylic mediums. If required we are able to produce custom surfaces and work within clients budgets.



Restoration Services

Colour Square offers basic restoration services for frames and stretched artworks. We can restore minor damage on frames, artefacts and sculptures. We also complete archival repairs to fabrics with damaged areas. Most of our major repairs are outsourced to various conservators around Melbourne and Australia. Due to our ongoing relationships with specialists in this field we are able to find the best possible solution for the customer.

Custom Display Solutions

An artwork may not always suit traditional framing methods. We offer alternative display solutions including plinths, steel stands and Perspex box frames.

Expert Advice and Consultation

As a business involved in Australian art since 1988 Colour Square is able to provide expert advice on all aspects of framing and display solutions. If we are unable to directly assist our customers we have developed successful relationships with various businesses that may be better suited to fulfill our clients requirements. We regularly consult with companies for packaging, delivery, storage and restoration services.
