Peter Ashton Jones - The Red City
Standpoint Gallery is pleased to present ‘The Red City’, a selection of new paintings by Peter Ashton Jones.
‘The Red City’ comprises works made between the lockdowns of March 2020 and April 2021. Two central motifs repeatedly appear in the paintings: a large red building and a wooden spinning top, representing an idea of ‘the world’ that seems static and off its axis.
Ashton Jones has made a conscious decision to separate ‘the picture’ and ‘the painting’, while simultaneously joining the two in order to find a local habitation, a domain that captures a suspension of cognitive life and an acute sense of existential detachment.
