Gauntlet Collection Products

Gauntlet Canvas Collection strives to provide the highest quality materials and craftsmanship in all of our products which are made using high quality archival materials. Our canvas artwork comes professionally gallery wrapped, stretched over 1.5 inch wooden bars. Gauntlet Canvas Collection also works with each artist to extend their artwork to wrap around the edges of the frame. This unique process provides a superior product and greatly enhances the look of the print. The result is extremely close to an original work with clean lines and no visible staples once it is hung on your wall. Unlike other print methods, gallery wrapped canvases don’t require any costly framing.

Justin Kane Elder is a Seattle based artist. He studied at Cornish College of the Arts, earning a BFA in 2002 with an emphasis on painting and sculpture and is member of the artist group Electric Coffin. Justin's work is based on the relationship between the portrait and the process, with each portrait a humanistic abstraction of the subject. Portrait fascinate Justin do to the ability to create an intimate viewing experience. The subjects in Justin's portraits have a strong emotional attachment to the artist. Elder will spend countless hours searching for the perfect image to display an obscure view of the individual. Justin's painting process involves deconstruction and reassembly. He disassembles an image into basic geometric shapes and then rebuilds it with those shapes. Each piece is an additive process formed by amassing different layers of media. Similar to the way a builder constructs a home, the portrait becomes the house built from this process. The final result is a dynamic visual display of color and form. Justin's work is shown in Seattle and various cities along the West Coast as well as internationally.
