Critically acclaimed Jack Frame graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2007 with a sell-out degree show. He 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 won the Jolomo Landscape Art prize. While artist in residence at The Lomond School, Jack was included in the BBC Documentary ‘Glasgow Boys’ exposing his work to a wider audience.
Jack is most noted for his striking depictions of trees and sky. His works have a haunting grace and solemnity. Trees have always been a focal point of the artist’s work, the blossoming cherry in particular a recurring theme throughout his practice. As if with the awe of a child, he paints these trees as monuments, as the compositional focal point of each work and often set against his trademark gold backdrop.
Jack’s 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.
