A new body of reductive abstract work by London and Copenhagen based artist Jon Pilkington.


COMA is pleased to invite you to attend Weather for Leather, a solo exhibition of new work by London and Copenhagen based artist Jon Pilkington.

This will be Pilkington’s first exhibition in Australia. 

Pilkington's work explores abstraction through figuration, investigating the role of the motif and the relationship it holds to drawing in contemporary abstract painting. Seductive explorations of colour are informed by clarity and confidence through painterly application. The paintings created for this exhibition, Weather for Leather, offer propositions through simplification and rejection. 

Directly sourced from the content of pre-existing work, these pieces are scaled up, zoomed in, and re-investigated. Each work an evaluation of the past taking on a new life. They are direct, yet contrived.
