An exhibition of recent paintings by Jon Doran. De Profundis (From The Depths - Latin), explores questions about ultimate reality through contemporary representational painting. The wandering nameless figure is a continued motif, the archetypal search for clarity and truth. Also meditative floral studies, that explore the possibilities of talking about global truths through simple and classical starting points. Doran is interested in exploring classical subjects through a contemporary visual language. A still life set up, that is disturbed through digital like discrepancies.
I want the paintings to explore the questions about what is at the core of reality. What is life about?
