Friday was the second in our current series of artists talks. The students and the team would like to thank Jonathan Owen who gave an informative insight into his practice over the last 10 years.
Originally from Liverpool Jonathan studied Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University before moving to Edinburgh where he graduated from Edinburgh College of Art’s Master of Fine Art program.
Economy is very important within his work, reducing his subject and examining essential qualities, which at the same time as focusing his intent expand the possible meaning for the viewer. In recent work Jonathan develops questions around his own pre-occupation of suburbia and notions of class.
Jonathan is currently showing at Doggerfisher, Edinburgh along with Claire Barclay, Sara Barker, Neil Clements, Sally Osborn, Jonathan Owen and Albrecht Schäfer
Exhibition runs until 26th April 2008.
Was a really interesting talk, good advice from both john and louisa preston helped move my previous and current project’s along. look forward 2 the next artist talk, more of the same again please!!!
