The Eye of The Blackbird and Some More Recent Paintings, and Possibly Some Older Ones

About

Peter Ashton Jones talks about the ideas that lie behind the paintings from his last solo show, The Eye of The Blackbird, which was inspired by a poem by the great American poet Wallace Stevens. It is likely that this talk could extend into a range of related issues to do with contemporary painting and its relation to history. Either way, this talk will be, fundamentally, about painting in the twenty-first century and questions are welcome. Like many painters Jones has had to support his practise with part-time work: Jones was the curator of The Nunnery Gallery from 2000-2004, Arts Director of Limehouse Arts Foundation from 2004 to 2006, and in 2007 he co-founded the painting magazine Turps Banana with Marcus Harvey. In 2012 he established and is currently a co-director of the Lion and Lamb Gallery. Alongside the above, Jones has curated numerous exhibitions in commercial and ‘project' galleries in the UK and in Europe.
