Annet Gelink Gallery is proud to announce its collaboration with Anthony Reynolds Gallery for a retrospective view of British painter Jon Thompson.

 

Jon Thompson (UK, 1936 – 2016) was one of the most influential personalities of the British art scene in the past four decades. After his first solo show of paintings at Rowan Gallery in London in 1960, followed by four in London and New York between 1960 and 1967, he stopped panting for the next 40 years.

 

“I am particularly interested in the metaphysical aspects of painting; achieving that special quality of formal unity which can instil an almost involuntary yet visually intelligent response from the viewer…for me, tying painting into the realm of the ‘visual’ holds it somewhat apart from the image dominated world of the merely ‘visible’.”
