The Studio by John Monks

  • Long & Ryle
  • October 17th, 2019 - November 15th, 2019

In the history of art the word ‘Studio’ conjures a place of romance tinged with a sense of mythic struggle: the titanic epic of the production of art.

The process of creating a work of art is often a solitary occupation. The studio becomes symptomatic of a space that assists and nurtures the atmosphere required to allow creativity to thrive. It is the stage the artist sets for each individual narrative that he creates. In doing so, it offers a place of refuge in which to absorb the uncertainties and concerns of the world beyond and to attempt to channel this disquiet into a positive outcome.

This exhibition will consist of new oil paintings completed this year. They are products of the ether of the ‘Studio’.
