Hello world!

July 13, 2009

During Somerset Art Weeks last September Jon England opened his studio at Durston, Near Taunton. His site-specific installation at ‘HUT 27′ explored Somerset’s WWII heritage and in particular the unexpected links he found between Somerset and ‘The Great Escape’. Using media such as poppy seeds and varnish on board, dried milk powder on paper, etched glass and motorised projection he explored the factual and the filmic ‘great escape’.

The ‘Reveal’ partners of Somerset Art Works, Somerset Film and the Brewhouse Visual Arts were delighted to offer Jon the Reveal emerging artist award after visiting all the studios of those artists nominated from across the county.

Jon England, who studied at Central St Martin’s before returning to Somerset to live and work five years ago,  has a solo exhibition in the Brewhouse Gallery at the Brewhouse Theatre and Arts Centre in October.
