Jonathan Gibbs: Folk Tale and Other Work: Paintings, Drawings and Wood Engravings
An exhibition of paintings, drawings and wood engravings by Jonathan Gibbs will be on show at the Open Eye Gallery in January. Gibbs will exhibit a series of panel paintings in which he depicts form and space with allusions to landscape and objects. These are painted, drawn and carved forms. These symbolic paintings employ overlapping structures, planes and ambiguities of space to create particular harmonies. The new wood engravings present representational imagery with a more graphic sensibility. Pattern, line and shape are used to depict forms in nature, as well as interior compositions and variations of the still life.
