Jonathan Baldock

Abbey Fellow 2012/13

Jonathan Baldock feels that the immaculate pure white beauty of classical busts of antiquity has informed many of our current ideas and notions of taste. During his fellowship he hopes that the colourful history of art in Italy will inspire a new body of paintings. He will explore the colourful mosaics of St Peter's Basilica both from close up as a colourful abstract and, from a distance, as a painterly masterpiece and his aim is not to delete the white but only to place it back where it belongs, in the middle of all the other colours.
