Jonathan's Style

His lyrical yet expressive paintings are drawn from memory; inspired by dreams and a variety of cross-referential imagery archived in his mind. A talented colourist, he takes inspiration from the likes of Matisse and Picasso yet he also draws on motifs from trips to the Mediterranean and from the everyday. Jonathan’s work is just as much about capturing an object or a person, as it is about viscerally representing what is depicted. 

 

The final piece is often thick with paint or oil stick. Remnants of smudges and handprints create ghostly marks across the page like fading memories. Works have clearly been pinned to the wall in a frenzy of creativity. This is what makes the work so interesting. Take the simplicity of the lemon for example - Jonathan makes us not only rejoice in their colour and the composition, but at looking at this series, we almost feel present during his process - Jonathan’s passion and energy is utterly palpable. As with all Jonathan’s works, we are transported - both to his studio, and to his Mediterranean dream-land.

"I think of my work as a visual form of Lyric poetry. The word Lyric comes form the ancient greek word for Lyre- a musical instrument played to accompany the words of the poet. I don't have a lyre, but I have colour and that in itself is the music. Colour is the thing, that binds my "lyrics" - the lyrics are from the thoughts and feelings I have- memories, ideas, physical sensations, dreams and wishes. Lyric poems are usually short- I like to work quickly." - Jonathan Schofield

"Last Summer I made a series of work using a highly pigmented cobalt blue paint. mixing abstract forms relating to the waves, breathing, the body and figurative elements, the boy from Seurat, a turtle, a fish etc" - Jonathan Schofield
