Ultima Thule | An Exhibition of paintings by John Kent
“Ultima Thule” is a philosophical term for the furthest known place. From the personal point of view of a practitioner working in abstraction, it is an appropriate name for this body of work. Here, the artist is in a constant mode of searching, yet the act of searching can lead the artist down paths and to places that were not the original intended destination.
Using techniques such as layering and washing, choice of colour and motif – an overarching architype develops and a language forms. This is a selection of paintings on paper and canvas that examines a journey of experimentation and consolidation. “Ultima Thule” invites the viewer to interrogate and experience a similar journey, using the works as a map.

About John Kent
Kent’s work is influenced by the idea of language, its interpretation through consciousness, and cognitive mechanisms behind the act of understanding. In utilising the language of painting, his intention is to convey a tangible understanding to the more innate qualities of human existence.
