Jonathan Partridge

The endless investigation into understanding sense of place constantly allures me. The place I seek to discover is an internal journey. Place is where my feet are planted, the environment that I inhabit and it is also culture and symbols that surround me. All these visions however, reflect internally and my heart always searches to find their truths.
I have lived and studied the symbols of the orient. A world where the internal and external universes are symbiotic. The ornamentation of one is the ornamentation of the other. And so my art making is somehow an endeavour to find and elucidate the metaphysical values in all that surrounds me.
For me the earth is almost a burial ground of our long lived collective consciousness. The giant spirits we have created have walked this earth and have come to rest as mountains and rivers.
My studies are attempts to portray the diaphanous nature of the physical world. A physical world in constant flux- mountains are but shadows of light and they move from form to form, nothing is solid.
My adult life has been nomadic, and through my journeys, like others I have collected experiences and objects which I carry inside. These are like truths to which I place within the alter of my treasured life and seek to share with others.
