This October, to coincide with Frieze Art Fair, Agnew's continues its contemporary programme with an exhibition of recent works by British artist Zebedee Jones.

About

Utterly abstract, devoid of any narrative or descriptive markers, including titles, Jones' monochromatic paintings deny the viewers' compulsion to map subject or meaning onto them. Each painting describes only its material existence — paint and surface. Yet, the palimpsest-like layers of paint and resultant built-up density give a sense of time - the timeliness of the process of painting. In this way his work can be placed within a traditional of Minimalist painting but also of process art, particularly as paintings which contain evidence of their own construction. The artist's hand is so palpable that the voluminous texturing of the paint with brush and palette knife also evokes temporality. Rather than being illusory these paintings are suggestive of experience, firstly the experience of the painting, but by extension other experiences within our collective consciousness
