Aboudia canvas re-stretch for Jack Bell Gallery

The work of renowned artist Aboudia is gaining international acclaim with both public and private collectors. His paintings reflect the violence which took place widely across the Ivory Coast after the 2010 presidential elections when the country descended into civil war. His mark making speaks of Basquiat, and the subject matter of Goya. Aboudia’s new exhibition Trin Trin Ba-By’s opening coincided with Frieze week and will run until 14th November at Jack Bell Gallery.

The John Jones team of skilled craftspeople have re-stretched many of Aboudia canvases for Jack Bell Gallery. We use conservation grade FSC regulated tulip wood stretcher bars, which are kiln dried to provide a sturdy based and prevent splitting when stapled.

Canvases often arrive at John Jones showing signs of warping and degradation where practicing artists have used resources they had to hand. If kept stretched on poor quality bars canvases are difficult to frame and therefore hard to protect against harmful airborne pollutants and ultra violet light. To protect against long term damage we advise re-stretching onto quality materials. Jack Bell Gallery works in partnership with John Jones to ensure the highest possible standards are reached, therefore ensuring longevity for collectors.

Re-stretching also allows clients to exhibit works across the globe removing the need for costly shipping, which enables artists to gain more international exposure. We aim to provide premium customer service, and our installation team are available to re-stretch canvases on site making the process smooth and simple for the client.
