DESCRIPTION

White Walls is pleased to present the new work of Bristol based artist, Mr Jago, in his latest exhibition titled New Coordinates. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, August 16 from 7 pm to 11 pm. The exhibit will be on view through September 6, 2014 and is free and open to the public.

The work of Mr Jago cannot be simply described or categorized. His work is dynamic and full of movement. Paintings by the artist are free flowing and organic, yet can also be described as robotic. In his latest collection, Mr Jago explores these abstracted versions of the robotic figures that defined his early career and explains that by keeping in mind the robotic species, as well as our own, “this body of work is populated by a species of sorts - a species deployed to new coordinates.” Mr Jago’s process is a mix of both fantasy and nightmare and “a journey to an unknown place and time.”

With a collection of 25 pieces, both on canvas and on paper, and the inclusion of a special 10-foot work on canvas, Mr Jago continues his exploration of new concepts, while revisiting those past.
