Born in Chatham, Kent in 1986, Jack moved to Glasgow, where he graduated from the city’s School of Art in 2007 with a sellout degree show. In 2009 he gained a 3rd prize in the Jolomo Awards for landscape painting.
Describing himself as ‘magpie’ in his approach to his art, Frame is also a romantic in the way he engages his artistic sensibility – always striving to strip away the heaviness of a scene, be it in a landscape or figurative painting. Thus in this series of works, the trees stand alone, often with gold leaf as the backdrop to the studies.
Jack currently splits his time between painting in his central Glasgow studio and teaching at the independent Lomond School, where he is artist-in-residence.
