Contemporary painter Jack Frame was born in Chatham, Kent in 1986. He has since relocated to Glasgow where he divides his time painting in his studio and teaching at the Lomond school. He graduated from the The Glasgow School of Art in 2007 with a sell-out degree show and was then runner up in the Jolomo awards for landscape painting in 2009. Jack Frame’s work explores romantic visions of landscape and figurative scenes, with his newest series focusing on enchanting depictions of trees on gold leaf backgrounds. Jack describes himself as a magpie in his approach to his art, Frame is also a romantic in the way he engages his artistic sensibilities – always striving to strip away the heaviness of a scene, be it in landscape or figurative painting.
