Interview with curator and critic, Francesca Gavin gallery

We had the pleasure of framing the work for Champignons, a new exhibition curated by FRAME London’s long-time friend, Francesca Gavin.

Last chance to see Sue Dunkley at Alison Jacques gallery

Sue Dunkley: Work from the 1960s and 1970s ends this Saturday. The Leicester born artist’s unmissable solo show at Alison Jacques gallery brings together work from the 60s and 70s, many of which confront the roles and contemporary depictions of women within this cultural landscape. We framed a number of pastel works on paper for this exhibition which hang alongside large-scale works on canvas. Much of the work exhibited here was produced in Dunkley’s former house and studio in Liverpool Rd, a stone’s throw from Frame London and in which her children last year curated an exhibition of 50 years of her work.   Sue Dunkley: Work from the 1960s and 1970s Alison Jacques gallery Until 29th July 2017

Nicholas Hatfull @ Josh Lilley Gallery gallery

We had the pleasure of attending the opening of Nicholas Hatfull’s second solo exhibition at Josh Lilley gallery last night. A modern day flaneur, Hatfull collects and transforms the discarded imagery and refuse of everyday life into impressionistic and surreal assemblages. The show comprises of 2D and sculptural work: we worked with Nicholas to design some custom frames for his textural collages, which were floated on museum board and housed in Tulip box frames and reinforced with our ‘non-crack’ corners and a bright matte white spray finish.
