Sam Spenser Luna with pioneering frame solutions by John Jones

John Jones has recently had the pleasure of creating a pioneering framing solution for award-winning contemporary British artist Sam Spenser. Sam was looking to explore a sense of space and optical illusion outside the conventions of traditional perspective drawing, when he constructed the idea for ‘Luna’. The piece consists of two 1.2m circular, semi-transparent electroluminescent drawings that overlap in a custom-engineered pivoting frame designed by John Jones. The result is a continuously evolving matrix of lines that captivates viewers in a trance-like state. The drawings were specifically designed to interfere visually, and the finished piece is presented as an exercise in style and optical precision. Loosely based on the eclipsing of the moon, Luna is one of five limited edition works that focus upon precision and light. In the case of Luna, the pivoting mechanism created by John Jones defines the frame as integral to the piece itself, and Sam was delighted with the result: ‘I think what makes this work is the combination of John Jones mechanical engineering and the very unusual electrified, luminous, organic phosphor as a medium.’ Luna is currently being displayed at Shoreditch House, where it is available to view privately by appointment with Sam. If you are interested in viewing, exhibiting or purchasing any of the works in this series, contact sam@miscellanyinc.com to schedule a meeting.
