This is the final exhibition to accompany a two year creative research initiative involving mapping and collecting by artist/geologist Jon Adams in response to Accentuate and the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad in the South East of England.
Look About gathers âfound objects and experiences' and presents them as curated films, fossils, geological diagrams and maps. Jon Adams BSc FRSA is a geologist, illustrator and artist who uses scientific observational techniques, data collection and mapping within his work. Jon is a collector by nature. Highly observant and an authentic detailer, he seeks to uncover the hidden and unexpected. The geological metaphor weaves together science and art, digital and analogue, observation and autobiographical experiences of Dyslexia and Aspergers.
Jon Adams is the lead artist for Accentuate, the London 2012 Legacy Programme for the South East. Accentuate has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK, SEEDA and the Regional Cultural Agencies.
The Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery is a contemporary space run by Kent County Council to show new work from established and emerging artists.
