Adam Neate returns to Elms Lesters Painting Rooms from 5th September to 18th October, with a long awaited selling exhibition titled, ‘Dimensionalism’, a term coined by the artist to describe his stylistic approach to painting.

The self-taught artist has rightly earned the title of one of ‘Britain’s foremost figurative painters’. His mixed media three-dimensional works are held in public and private collections in 30 different countries. His forthcoming exhibition ‘Dimensionalism’ is set to be another brilliant overview of contemporary figurative painting - one which is a must see!

John Jones has a longstanding relationship with both the artist Adam Neate, and Elms Lesters, so were delighted to have the opportunity to frame his new works for this upcoming exhibition. John Jones Design Consultants worked with Neate to create a selection of museum standard conservation frames which both highlight and protect his three-dimensional works.

A thick wooden profile with soft-sanded edges was produced in our Hertfordshire wood mill, and sprayed with five coats of a superior glossy, ‘piano black’ wash, which was then waxed to create a high shine finish. The works have been float mounted on black museum board using acid free art care pads to make them hover within the frame, and were finished with ultra violet light resistant Optium acrylic, which will prevent discolouration of the works over time.
