'Shrine' Solo Exhibition featuring 30 New Paintings by Jack Frame

These paintings were made to stand in the world and were made with the intention to be lived with. They have to compete with the noise and intensity of the everyday surrounding us. The desire is to make something that, however humble or simplistic in origin, can offer another person consolation’.

The artist Jack Frame is synonymous and best known for his paintings of trees. In their intricacy and depth, they go far beyond the facade, but have the solemnity and resonance of real portraiture. The Works assembled in the exhibition Shrine, during the covid spring and summer of 2020, are an invitation for contemplation, reflection, and harmony at a time when these articles are sorely needed.

An abiding sense of energy and life abounds from the bringing together of imagery and materials, the way they play against one another, has a subtle and mesmerizing effect. Coupled with strong craft elements and a striking use of gold leaf, the paintings echo an almost spiritual intensity. A palpable desire to heal and grow both literally and metaphorical lies at their heart.
