More from Jonathan Gibbs January 19 2016

Life is But a Dream, Jonathan Gibbs' solo exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery in Edinburgh continues until 27th January 2016.

Jonathan has lived and worked in Scotland for many years but acknowledges the importance of the “churches, fields, shorelines and elements of landscape from East Norfolk, where my family comes from”.

Having trained at Central School of Art and Design and the Slade School of Fine Art, in addition to the creation of new work for regular exhibitions Jonathan is a Head of Illustration at the Edinburgh College of Art.

Writing about Jonathan’s 2006 ‘Flint & Straw’ exhibition at the Open Eye Gallery, Alan Powers suggests that “at first sight, his paintings and engravings evoke a mid-twentieth-century mood, suggestive of territory between Ben Nicholson and Eric Ravilious – fastidious, linear and deeply sensitive to place”.

Jonathan will be taking part in our forthcoming Editions & Objects exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park from 25th June until 30th October 2016. Sign up for our e-mail newsletter for details.
