PAPER JAM.  

Jonathan MacDonald

September 2021 - January 2022

Jonathan MacDonald artist Isle of Lewis

Our autumn 2021 exhibition is by young local artist Jonathan MacDonald.

'Jonathan is based in Stornoway and has been developing his work as an abstract artist over the last number of years. His work is bright, playful and colourful, with his canvases full of fantastical detailed paths of colour, echoing the abstract work of Plaul Klee, Joan Miró and Jackson Pollock. His work often features shapes and lines that create visual maps that come from working intuitively from his imagination, and sometimes with influences of the environment that surrounds him.’
