JAKE WOOD-EVANS : RELIC
Jan 10 - Mar 29, 2020
Jake Wood-Evans’ new body of work, produced for this solo exhibition at Winchester Discovery Centre’s Gallery, which is operated by Hampshire Cultural Trust in partnership with Unit London, is a continuation of the artists’ exploration of memory and mortality. Returning to his enduring love of the Baroque for inspiration, the likes of Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck, Nicolas Poussin and Jean-Baptiste Marie Pierre form the conceptual genesis for Relic. Here Wood- Evans moves further into abstraction than ever before, as the reference piece is transformed he uses the canvas to examine the tangibility, or lack thereof, of our existence.

'Alter Ego' features the work of Oh de Laval, Philip Gerald, Shadi Al-Atallah, Tadija Janicic, Dominic Dispirito, Nicasio Fernandez and Danny Gretscher. The exhibition seeks to re-energise the painters’ voice amidst the clamour of an increasingly varied artistic landscape.

Mar 10 - Apr 4, 2020 FINAL WEEK
In his latest exhibition, 'Natural Order', Staniak focuses on how technology can be used to make sense of the myriad of capricious information that is readily available online. Having to navigate this virtual landscape poses many new challenges, like entering a strange and inhospitable land without a map. In this new series of HDF paintings, Staniak’s signature casting compound textures and saturated, screen-like hues are treated with an extra visual device. Software-based geometric compositions dissect his seemingly random and improvised gestures into more ordered areas of information.

JAKE WOOD EVANS : RELIC
Apr 10 - May 2, 2020
Following his current success at his solo exhibition at Winchester Discovery Centre’s Gallery with Hampshire Cultural Trust, ‘Relic’ will be continue at Unit London from 10 April - 2 May. Jake Wood Evan’s new body of work is a continuation of the artists’ exploration of memory and mortality. Returning to his enduring love of the Baroque for inspiration, the likes of Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck, Nicolas Poussin and Jean-Baptiste Marie Pierre form the conceptual genesis for Relic. Here Wood Evans moves further into abstraction than ever before, as the reference piece is transformed he uses the canvas to examine the tangibility, or lack thereof, of our existence. Jake claims he has always been just as interested in what is absent, missing or removed, than what remains; he hopes these new paintings have the power to engage and captivate the viewer for even the briefest moment, to provide the opportunity for a meditative and emotional response.
