Jon Delgado: 10 Years

London based artist Jon Delgado exhibited his first retrospective at Nancy Victor this March. Jon uses dyes and inks discharged with bleach to create luminescent work inspired by forest landscapes, childhood memories and antique photos.

10 Years featured a selection of paintings produced by the artist over the past decade alongside brand new work, including small-size sculptures playfully reimagining some of his subjects.

 The show provided an insight into Delgado’s particular sensibility and ability to manipulate single-colour pigments to achieve the desired intensity and hues, while also welcoming the unpredictable effects caused by applying bleach.
