ALPHA ART IS DELIGHTED TO PRESENT THE ARTIST’S FIRST SOLO SHOW IN

WORK

BORN IN CHATHAM, KENT, IN 1986, JACK FRAME GRADUATED FROM THE GLASGOW
SCHOOL OF ART IN 2007 WITH A SELL-OUT DEGREE SHOW, FOLLOWED BY A 3RD PRIZE IN THE JOLOMO AWARDS FOR LANDSCAPE PAINTING IN 2009. THERE HE ALSO WON THE STANDARD LIFE AWARD, LANDSCAPE PAINTING AND THE LANDSCAPE DRAWING PRIZE. SINCE THEN HE HAS ACHIEVED INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION WITH COLLECTORS AS FAR AS HONG KONG AND NEW YORK. HE IS NOW BEING HOTLY TIPPED TO BECOME ONE OF THE UK’S MOST COLLECTABLE ARTISTS.

FRAME IS PARTICULARLY RENOWNED FOR HIS BLOSSOM TREES ON GOLD AND METAL LEAF, WHERE THEY ARE INDIVIDUALLY SET FLOATING IN THE CENTRE OF THE PIECE, ISOLATED FROM ALL OTHER NATURAL ELEMENTS. THIS BODY OF WORK IS PART OF THE ARTIST’S WILL TO DOCUMENT THE TREES LIFE CYCLE, WORKING PURELY FROM OBSERVATION, TAKING PICTURES AND DRAWING SKETCHES OF HIS SUBJECTS BEFORE RETURNING TO HIS STUDIO TO PRODUCE THE FINAL PIECES. FRAME’S MAIN FOCUS HAS ALWAYS BEEN SET ON TREES.

LIVING IN THE ORCHARD OF ENGLAND CERTAINLY GIVES FRAME PLENTY OF SCOPE TO FIND THE PERFECT TREE. A SMALL NUMBER OF HISTORIC OAKS ARE ALSO REGULARS IN HIS WORK, ALTHOUGH THEY TEND TO BE PAINTED IN SITU WITH TWILIGHT OR DRAMATIC SKIES. HIS PAINTINGS COME FROM MEMORIES AND REFLECTIONS BASED ON PLACES RE-VISITED AND RE-IMAGINED OVER THE YEARS.
“IN THE WAY REMBRANDT KEPT RETURNING TO SELF-PORTRAIT, AS A MEANS OF
CHARTING THE PASSAGE OF TIME, I KEEP GOING BACK TO TREES AS A WAY OF
UNDERSTANDING THE WORLD” HE EXPLAINS.
