Works in United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

Jonathan is an artist and Associate Lecturer at the University of the Arts London.

His art practice involves both an embodied experience of material and the new possibilities afforded by digital technologies. He pours white glue over a variety of physical surfaces and explores what happens when this is brought into a digital environment.

Jonathan lived for 3 years in China (2004-7), learning Mandarin and exploring connections between his own practice and Chinese art. He has had exhibitions in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Kunming and lectured at many art schools.

He has exhibited widely including Brazil, Korea, Sweden, India, UK and China. Solo and group shows have been seen at the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts) London, London Art Fair, 798 Beijing, Shanghai Biennial and his work was selected for the Bonhams Exhibit 06 a survey of contemporary British art.

Jonathan has also worked as a curator, curating ‘Fibonacci swirls’ by Sir Terry Frost, ‘Chinese Contemporary Art - Identity and Transformation’ Kunming, China and ‘Close to the Surface - Digital Presence’ ICA, London.
