Jon Delgado: 10 Years

 

Jon Delgado

London-based artist Jon Delgado uses dyes and inks discharged with bleach in a unique way to create atmospheric, luminescent work inspired by forest landscapes, childhood memories and antique and family photos. For his first solo exhibition in London since 2009, he presents a selection of paintings produced over the past decade alongside brand new work, including small-size sculptures playfully re-imagining some of his subjects.

The show provides an insight into Delgado's particular sensibility and his ability to skilfully manipulate single-colour dyes and inks to achieve the desired light, intensity and hues, while also welcoming the element of unpredictability represented by the various effects caused by the application of diluted bleach a reflection, perhaps, of the unpredictability and mystique of the natural world the artist so loves.
