The relentless power of nature creates order out of chaos, my work seeks to channel that energy and evoke a primal sense of experience: dramatic, dynamic and deep. J.D
Growing up in the Georgian city of Bath, Jack has been dedicated to his art practice from an early age. Jack has now established a distinct visual language combining a variety of marks, textures and layers to create an immersive and expressive response to the Cornish coastline.
Jack is a tutor at the Newlyn School of Art and since graduating from Falmouth University in 2012 has held 4 solo exhibitions in buildings of historic importance.
Exhibiting nationally and internationally, including at the Scope Art Fair Miami, PROTECHT in association with the Whitechapel Gallery, The Threadneedle Prize: Figurative Art Today, Critics Choice Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens and was an invited artist to Sculpture by the Sea in Cottesloe, Australia.

TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to email@example.com or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
