Featured Artist

Jon George

Jon George is a Founder Member of Chisenhale Art Place . Born in Cumberland,
Jon moved to Falmouth to complete a BA in Painting. A prolific artist
throughout his career, Jon’s most recent exhibitions have been at St Johns
Hall Gallery in Wales in 2016 and 2018, where he also delivered courses in
his unique Castprinting and Egg Tempura Painting techniques.
Jon usually goes in search of the subjects for his paintings by means of a
bicycle, in the countryside.  It may be a landscape, a townscape or both and
features some aspect that has scope for expression: weather and light,
seasonal aspects, human activity or influence and natures response to that.
He then expands on the drawings on his return to the studio.
Paintings and prints follow the drawings. Literally but pushing their
qualities, attempting their details, enlarging their lyrics, adding colours
and remembering the atmosphere – a shaft of midwinter light momentarily
slanting across the hill, illuminating trunks and branches of oak.
Jon George has also developed his own printing method known as Castprinting
and describes his process as  ‘peculiar’  and uses pulp to establish forms,
then gesso, then egg tempera.
You can see more about Jon’s work, and that of all our studio artists, on our Studio Artist page.
