Work in Progress: The Rapture of Recognition


If you follow @Studio2846 on Twitter, earlier this month you would have seen Jonathan share a photograph of one of his current works in progress, tentatively titled "The Rapture of Recognition". The work shown to the left of the photograph above shows the progress that has been made on the piece in the last few weeks.

Jonathan is now at the stage of glazing both this and the larger work to the right of the photograph. "The process of glazing is very intense," Wallace explains, "once it is laid down there is no removing it; I can only go forward. It's a delicate dance and an emotionally exhausting process. This process is part of what gives the paintings their depth, and this quality of inner light."
