Jaybo Monk - Game Lapse Exhibition

The end of the Olympics in London marks the beginning of a new exhibition of works by urban-modernist, Jaybo Monk, who’s largest show to date opens here at Rook & Raven this Thursday 16th August and seeks to explore themes of movement and competition inspired by The Games.

 Jaybo explains: ‘Game Lapse is the attempt to respond and communicate between viewer and painter on a common base - the Olympic games - in a very emotional and expressive form, breaking the law of the narrative situation and playing with our primary ideas of movement and time. The quest of this show is to cultivate a kind of improvisation using well-known body parts and geometric shapes and giving them new directions.’

In the most extensive exhibition of Jaybo’s work in London, Game Lapse presents a selection of paintings, drawings and sculptures covering the expanse of the gallery. One floor will feature works on canvas and the other will be filled with drawings; with both housing various sporting antique-themed installations.

Private View Thursday 16th August from  6.30pm - 9.30pm.
August 17th — September 5th
