About

Jonathan Stephenson/Rocket presents an exhibition of paintings and drawings made between 1970 and 1973 by the late Jere my Moon (British, 1934-1973). These paintings are the ‘mature'work of Jeremy Moon whose career was cut tragically short by a motorcycle accident in November 1973. All of these paintings have remained in Moon's garden studio in Kingston-upon-Thames since his death. Moon's 1970s paintings show an interest in formal geometric concerns, but simultaneously achieve a wit and playfulness that gives this body of work an astonishing contemporary quality. The paintings from this intense four-year period possess tremendous variety within the restrained parameters that Moon had set himself. The drawings exhibited are all sketches of ideas for paintings and those from 1973 give us a hint of the ‘shaped' canvases that Moon might have worked on had he lived. This is the third Jeremy Moon exhibition exhibition at Rocket and follows on from Jeremy Moon: drawings & collages (2005) and Jeremy Moon: 1969 grid paintings (2006).
