This new body of work from Jake Wood-Evans continues the artist's meditative explorations of memory and mortality. Wood-Evans’ style has always been heavily indebted to the Baroque and here is no different: echoes of Rubens, Van Dyck and Poussin reverberate around his new, heavily abstracted, compositions. Whereas previously Wood-Evans’ work had a decidedly figurative core, we now see the artist in a period of subtraction. In taking away the rigidity imposed by a figurative structure, the artist enables himself to add emotional depth. These paintings capture the essence of what it was to view a Wood Evan’s portrait from Legacy & Disorder or Transitions, the subject and composition has changed, but the qualia remains broadly the same. Wood-Evans’ has reduced the aesthetic experience down to something tighter, more concise, more intense - like a poem condensed into a single line.

In the lead up to the opening of Relic at the Hampshire Cultural Trust, we spoke to Jake about his new show - click here to learn more.
