Currently on show at The Tramshed in East London, Jonathan Wateridge's exhibition 'Another Place' is epic in a number of ways. Each of the seven photo-realistic oil paintings which make up the exhibition measures three metres by four metres, and combine to narrate a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a large-scale disaster movie. Within the works themselves, the lines between reality and fiction are blurred, each beautifully rendered scene is presented in such a way as to invite the viewer to explore for their own questions, decipher what is happening and try to find their own answers.
Born in Zambia, Jonathan Wateridge currently lives and works in London and has featured in various solo and group exhibitions, most notably being championed by art czar Charles Saatchi who included Wateridge's work in his renowned exhibition at The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg last year, 'Newspeak: British Art Now'.
Presented by All Visual Arts, 'Another Place' is on show until 3rd July. For full details, visit the AVA website.
