John Jones Art on Paper Award Winners Exhibition
The John Jones Art on Paper Award is held annually at Art Dubai with the aim of recognising and celebrating the potential for excellence in artwork created on this surface. The 2012 award was presented jointly to Hassan Sharif and Luis Camnitzer, both represented by Alexander Gray Associates in New York. As part of their prize, the artists were given the opportunity to exhibit a new body of work at Satellite, Al Serkal Avenue during Art Dubai 2013. This exhibition was framed to a museum quality by the John Jones team.
Each piece by Camnitzer has been presented within an 8ply 100% cotton rag mount board, chosen for its acid-free, archival properties. Each square profile frame has been cut, sanded and sprayed by hand in the John Jones workshops to a crisp black finish, providing a minimal and un-intrusive backdrop to the contemporary work. Ultra violet filtered Perspex glazing provides the artworks with long-term protection from fading and embrittlement caused by sunlight and gallery lighting and each frame is fitted with high quality strap hangers to ensure they sit flush against the wall without risk of tilting or coming loose over time.
