The wait is nearly over! We are thrilled to announce that the date is nearly upon us. One of Unit London's most sought-after artists, Jake Wood-Evans, lands with his landmark debut Solo exhibition, Subjection & Discipline.

About

Nearly 6 months in the making, Subjection & Discipline takes inspiration from 18th century painters, including declared re-workings of works by Joshua Reynolds (1723 - 1792) and Henry Raeburn (1756 - 1832),  Wood-Evans’ unique style of historical ambiguity produces images that are both unsettling and beautiful.  Faces are defiled and figures appear as apparitions.  Subjects range from a ghostly vision of a society lady to a fading portrait of a once proud general and grotesquely disfigured admiral. 

Viewed together, the body of work is eerily reminiscent of an art collection of a great estate in the early years of the British Empire.
