Project Ability are pleased to be presenting a solo exhibition by Aspire painter Jonathan McKinstry. Jonathan creates his paintings with flatly applied colour, often in thick oil-stick strokes with a sketchiness and air or caricature. Jonathan is also a productive maker of comics with his paintings often containing the character of cartoons. His work offers a gleeful viewing experience of life, through the lens of a high-comic drama.
Jonathan has been industriously working towards the exhibition, creating large scale paintings of places visited; real, imagined and yet to visit from Edinburgh Zoo, the inspiring landscapes or Ireland, to the fictional bar of the Star Wars universe located in the pirate city of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine.
The exhibition will run 22 October – 1 November 2014 at the Project Ability Gallery. Admission is free.
