Jonathan Anderson

Following yesterday's post and thinking about "...a new generation of artists paying attention to process and materials...", Swansea based Jonathan Anderson's work springs immediately back to mind. He has a blog where he posts new work regularly and it's a delight to keep up to date with his (prolific) output. The work has a rare depth and quality, it consciously re-addresses modernist ideas of the art object and the process of making, and with a strong nod to Arte Povera legacies. The brevity of the symbolic language, forms and techniques empower the work; an almost Taoist quality of simplicity.

The sand house installation was shown as part of Ground at Oriel Wrecsam last year.
