Gill Rocca - London Art Fair 2012
John Jones were delighted to frame four striking miniatures by contemporary artist Gill Rocca for display at London Art Fair 2012. Gill’s painted landscapes draw upon invention and observation to present an ambiguous and elusive sense of reality, transforming the recognizable into something eery and strangely alien. The painted scenes portrayed by the artist are all familiar and yet anonymous, depicting woodland, still lakes and deserted roads which can be assimilated into the viewer’s own memories of place, both real and imagined. Further examples of Gill’s work along with previous exhibitions and contact information are listed on her website, and you can also follow the artist on Twitter @gillrocca.
The John Jones design team presented each miniature on a 4ply deep, black backing, framed within a contemporary lime wood frame. These frames have all been finished with a matt black spray, which plays upon the mood and unsettling resonance of Gill’s painted scenes. Each artwork has been framed to the finest museum standards, and glazed with our specialist glass. This ‘water white’ glazing has a low iron content, meaning it loses the green tint associated with regular glazing. The material also includes an ultra violet light filter and low glare properties, which work to protect the paintings from harmful rays whilst minimizing glare which can disrupt the viewing experience. Gill exhibited her work with GBS Fine Art at London Art Fair 2012, and we are delighted to continue to work with this talented artist.
