As you step into the gallery, you notice an interesting piece of art hanging on the wall.
"I like the piece, but what's with the title?" you ask the docent. "I'm used to obscure titles in modern art, but not this obscure. Normally the name has at least something to do with the subject."
"Sadly, the name of this piece has been lost. The artist did say it would become clear with careful study, but I've been too busy fighting the vandals in the gallery to take the time myself. Maybe you can help find its true title?"
The final answer is a single word that is related to the puzzle.
(Additional tags will be added when they no longer spoil the solution path.)
If we're being pedantic, the black sections should really be a dark brown. I blame the camera I used to take the picture of the painting.
Hint 2 (v3.0):
"The frame goes specifically with this painting," the docent muses. "It was provided by the artist themself."
