An Interview With Jarren Frame

Jarren Frame is a New York based visual artist whose work challenges us to alter the way we perceive the world around us. With an unusual background and not bound by any rules, we sat down with Jarren to learn more.

Who has had the greatest influence on your work?
It started out with James Bond and I suppose it’s all driven by a sense of adventure. The Bond paintings were very figurative, right? Depicting visuals with lots of adventure, for example him playing golf on the Moon, in a jetpack, skiing, doing things all over the world. As I’ve developed my practice more and more, instead of using forms and things that are representative of adventure, I’m trying to create the sense that the work is made from the fabric of our world itself, that I am not necessarily adding anything, rather it’s something that’s pre-existing.

So that’s what got me to my flat monochrome color paintings. In one sense, they are simply just a plain color, and in another sense, I’m challenging the viewer to let them take you on an adventure.

Is there a central thought you are trying to convey?
My work is not prescriptive of having a particular meaning. It’s more of an invitation to imagine, or reside in an alternate world and I’ve begun making that more concrete with my Otherworld Topographies.

Did you draw inspiration from Yves Klein for these?
I love his planetary reliefs; I also love monochrome. They for sure have been an inspiration, I’d love to expand on this in my own way and take the idea further.

What are some of the things that are inspiring you right now?
I get a lot of inspiration from films and fiction that have managed to build their own worlds.
