Monday – Friday 10:00am – 7:00pm

Jake Wood-Evans’ new body of work, produced for this solo exhibition at Winchester Discovery Centre’s Gallery, which is operated by Hampshire Cultural Trust, is a continuation of the artists’ exploration of memory and mortality. Returning to his enduring love of the Baroque for inspiration, the likes of Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony Van Dyck, Nicolas Poussin and Jean-Baptiste Marie Pierre form the conceptual genesis for Relic. Here Wood-Evans moves further into abstraction than ever before, as the reference piece is transformed he uses the canvas to examine the tangibility, or lack thereof, of our existence. Jake claims he has always been just as interested in what is absent, missing or removed, than what remains; he hopes these new paintings have the power to engage and captivate the viewer for even the briefest moment, to provide the opportunity for a meditative and emotional response.
