With PAPER MODE, where’s the frame? creates the opportunity for early-career artists to sell their work to a worldwide collector’s base. In this way, collectors can support artists in a very important stage of their career during uncertain times.

Putting artists first, where’s the frame? foregrounds storytelling, so viewers can really dig deep into the concepts of the artworks. All trained in London at art schools like the RA, RCA and SLADE, although not bound to a theme, the artists express a range of topics pertinent to our time.

Argentinian artist So a explores entangled modes of communication especially language and translation with patterns produced by her custom made tools. Real-life yet a raw depiction of her community with bold lines and striking colours are what Karimah’s known for. Whimsical yet liminal, Eleanor works are filled with references of mythology from her Gaelic heritage. Her works are in between, where the subjects are visually absent and present at the same time.

A flowing dynamism that comes from light, Korean artist Hannah’s abstract works are vibrant yet harmonious. Kelda works around the duality of the possible meaning of words and images in a feminist context. Lucy’s abstract fragmentations of the body examine our fragile relationship with the physical.

Delivered by the Kunstmatrix, on their website, visitors can experience the artworks online in a virtual gallery setting in an almost tangible form. Their exhibitions are collaborative of nature. They don’t only provide opportunities for artists but include paid collaborations with an early career photographer Alina Zum Hebel and graphic designer Lorenzo Eynard.

About the Artists

Sofia Clausse in her studio (taken by Alina zum Hebel)

Sofía Clausse born in Buenos Aires is an artist currently based in London. She has a BFA from
the Rhode Island School of Design and is currently doing a postgraduate at the Royal Academy Schools. Her practice grows in spirals – exploring questions of repetition, time, tools, systems, and abstraction of language.

Karimah Hassan in her studio (Taken by Alina zum Hebel)

Karimah Hassan, born in Wales with Yemeni and Bangladeshi heritage, has an expressive, bold aesthetic and is heralded for ‘taking stories of community gatekeepers full circle, from the canvas to the streets‘. She graduated MA Architecture from the Royal College of Art, London, 2016, and from the Mural Career Development programme, Toronto, 2019.

Eleanor Johnson in her studio (taken by Gabriel Kenny-Ryder)

Eleanor Johnson is an artist based in London. Her work considers the intangible zone between absence and presence – both visually, physically and psychologically. Often they depict visual fragments of Old Master works, creating scenes that imply an idyll reworked into a contemporary context. She graduated from University College London with a BA in History of Art and is currently undertaking an MA in Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School.

Hannah Shin in her studio

Hannah Shin is a Seoul-based artist trained at SLADE and the RCA. Creating large scale abstract paintings, her artwork invites you to merge into a visual language of elusive and sensory spaces of various festive gestures and actions that correspond to each other.

Kelda Storm in her studio (Taken by Alina zum Hebel)

Kelda Storm is a London based artist who graduated from Camberwell College of Arts in 2020. In a bright signature style, she works with the duality of the meaning of words and images. Words and images may be celebratory, but they also comment on the ingrained and subconscious gender in- equalities that exist in society. Lips, perhaps the ultimate feminine iconography, serve both to sexualise and sensualise. They are also a symbol of speech and voice.

C. Lucy R. Whitehead in her studio (Taken by Alina zum Hebel)

C. Lucy Whitehead, born in Liverpool, lives and works in London, explores the visual representation of the human form. In her paintings, the subject is in a constant flux of existence. Bodily mass is dissected with geometric structures which both support and disrupt the ow of the natural form. She has a BA from Camberwell College of Arts and is currently in the final stage of an MA in painting from the RCA.

Alina Zum Hebel (photographer for PAPER MODE) is a creative based in London with strong expertise in brand communication and marketing. She is passionate about tasteful creatives, building content strategies and telling stories about people.

Lorenzo Eynard (graphic designer for PAPER MODE) is a graphic designer from Italy who is fascinated by the dynamism of Communication Design. He is in his final year of MA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins.
