Luc Fuller - Standing Paintings
The John Jones team of talented designers have developed a system of standing supports for canvas stretches so they can be viewed from both sides, as sculptural works of art. Our team worked closely with American Artist Luc Fuller to produce a variety of different sized supports for his exhibition, Standing Paintings, at Rod Barton’s esteemed Peckham gallery space, from 1st May – 7th June.
Based in Portland, Luc Fuller has exhibited internationally in Italy, Russia and Malaysia. Standing Paintings will be his first major solo exhibition in London. Fuller’s work focuses on a ‘circulation exchange’; he removes a symbol from its origin through reproduction and re-appropriation. His works reject the traditions of painting, and re-invents them. His paintings become architectural; they dictate space, cutting pathways for the viewer through the gallery.

Luc Fuller opts for an un-primed cotton duck surface as he prefers to leave the canvas bare or prime them himself to keep in line with his artistic intentions. John Jones cotton duck comes in a variety of different thicknesses but to ensure the longevity of the work, we recommend using a minimum canvas weight of 12oz. The cotton duck is stretched onto quality FSC regulated tulip wood stretcher and cross bars, which are kiln dried to remove moisture from the wood to prevent splitting. The self-standing aluminium supports our team designed especially for Fuller’s needs provide a sturdy base whilst maintaining a professional aesthetic.
