Jad Oakes

London-based Jad Oakes explores the possibilities of photography and the moving image for sculptural installations, prints and photogravures.

His works are presented as collections or bodies of work that are connected by their process, theme and technique. The main thread that ties these bodies of works together is a fascination with memory and time.

Since 2014 he has developed and nurtured an ongoing series of small scale silent looping film installations housed in wooden sculptures titled Vessels.

Condensed Vessel Videos:

Dreams of Somewhere Else
Moonscape 50
Memory Vessel

Using timbers of Oak, Walnut and Bog Oak these moving image sculptures seek to connect with the viewer by projecting them into an alternative space and time.

Of the Vessels series he notes a desire to “create intimate emotive sculptures, enticing contemplation and memory.”

Jad Oakes was awarded the Aesthetica Prize at the 2019 ING Discerning Eye Exhibition.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.
