The River Part One exhibition has opened at Eames Fine Art. The show features Jason’s brand-new London prints, which explore the role of the River Thames in the capital’s history. The etchings are an evocative portrait of London and its ever-growing, iconic skyline. However, at the heart of the exhibition is the Thames, carving out its path through the concrete of the city. Jason’s walks through London, from Hammersmith Bridge to Greenwich Observatory and back, served as the inspiration for this collection of etchings.
Visitors to the show have the chance to see Jason’s earlier London etchings, which were completed in 1991 and 1992 as part of his postgraduate diploma and are exhibited alongside the new prints. The River Part One marks his first artistic return to the capital in over 30 years, and it is a place which has always influenced Jason’s work. As well as etchings, Jason’s large monotypes of the London landscape are also on show.
The exhibition runs from 24 October – 10 November 2019 at Eames Fine Art, London on Bermondsey Street.
