A writer, journalist, essayist, film-maker and now an artist. It seems any anticipation Jonathan Meades must have felt in delving into the art world dissolved as he welcomed visitors to his premier art exhibition.
Guests were met with a life size likeness of Jonathan adorning the gallery reception wall, the mood was set. Carefully balanced pieces of neutral tones, textured, intense and somewhat lurid colour hung beside each other. Very much a trip for the eyes.
In relation to the atmosphere there was a definite air of intelligence and eccentricity from the visitors, high profile arts world figures and Jonathan's fans. This show is a go to for those familiar with Meades' as he turns a new venture in his already eclectic career.
