A solo exhibition by Jack Frame

About

Cornucopia is the first solo exhibition at McAllister Thomas Fine Art of Godalming for Kent based painter Jack Frame.

Born in 1983 in Kent, Jack Frame moved to Glasgow after attending The Kent Institiute of Art & Design to further his studies at the renowned Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 2007 with a sell-out degree show.

Frame was tipped early on as one of the most collectable young artists in the UK after receiving the GSA Painting award and the Prize for Landscape Drawing. In 2009 he was a winner of the Jolomo Landscape Art prize. While artist In residence At The Lomond School from 2007-2009, he was included in the BBC Documentary ‘Glasgow Boys’ exposing his work to a wider audience.

Critically acclaimed his work has been described as being rooted firmly in the landscape tradition, his paintings, drawings and use of mixed material capture a world in a vivid, intense and dramatic way. Jack Frame is most noted for his striking depictions of tree and sky, which have haunting grace and real solemnity. Like the best portraiture they seek to explore the contemporary landscape, using nature as a force to ask profound questions about the human condition.

His work is included in many public and private collections including the Standard Life building, Glasgow school of Art Mackintosh building and Friends of GSA. His patrons include Muriel Gray, Mathew Bellany from the Band Muse and Kate Hudson among others.
