Much has been written about the painting New York School so turn your attention to the grandiosity of the frame that anchors the large canvas. Frames as context to the painted surface are one of jonmarc’s most appealing structural devices and one he spent the “Nineties” experimenting with and finessing. JMe’s frames are often asymmetrical and whimsical, but in New York School, the heft of the painting, the dark oak easel, and the multitude of Characters enhance the implied hubris and give the overall work a sense of its 1950’s patriarchal romanticism.
