JACK SPENCER ASHWORTH




Born in London 1964, Ashley graduated from University of East London in 1995 with BA (Hons) Fine Art. He has exhibited in solo and joint shows in London and nationally. His paintings have been on loan for stage sets in theatre and television, and in private collections in UK and overseas.


My past work has been abstract based painting, collage and mono-printing using acrylic, pigments and oils on canvas combining textures using a layering process to integrate tones and create depth. Previous work reflected old manuscripts and artefacts. I have continued to explore atypical resources, often recycling materials, which are paper-based or cloth, building up on layers, creating textural wrapping. I use my sketchbooks as a medium reflecting in a sense my own creative metamorphosis, building up a creative continuum transcribed from my reference journal. This has transformed the way I work with a new organic identity towards three-dimensional installations. This has included work connecting ‘book and the body’ in how the spine acts as a supporting role for both.
