Artwork of the Week features two brilliant paintings by Aspire artist Jonathan McKinstry! These Star Wars themed paintings have been made during Lockdown in 2020, and are part of our exhibition, As Time Stood Still, Part Two. The exhibition features artworks made by Project Ability artists during Lockdown.
Jonathan McKinstry loves working on big canvases, but he also loves comic books. These paintings seem to combine his love of both. They have the fresh painterly look of a large canvas with the detail and size of an illustration. It’s been hard for a lot of our artists to carry on painting as they might normally do in the studio at Project Ability, and it’s great to see Jonathan has incorporated some new techniques to make up for the lack of a studio space just now. It has brought out some new and exciting developments.
We’re missing Jonathan’s energy and humour right about now! It will be a joy to welcome him back to the studio at Project Ability as soon as we can. You can see more of Jonathan’s artworks here!
