John Percy

John Percy is an abstract artist working in painting and collage using themes dealing with aspects of choice, decision and chance which stem from ideas around entropy and chaos theory.

In this exhibition, a continuation of last years Metaphorically Speaking, he continues to explore the process of painting as a metaphor for our lives, something he has been working on since 1989 to this day. Here he shows us a limited selection of favourite larger abstract paintings which span the periods 1990-1998 and 2014- 2019

John aims to make paintings that must stand in their own right and are not pictures of something. Works that are enigmatic, contemplative objects, carrying a certain poetic power and, at the same time, something that is a statement of personal ideals and an expression of his sense of the orderly disorder around us, the continual struggle between necessary social order and desirable personal anarchy.
