Almine Rech Paris is pleased to present Jonathan Gardner's first solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from November 20 to December 18, 2021.
Forming a homogeneous whole in both subject and style, Jonathan Gardner presents ten new paintings at Almine Rech in Paris.
Going further than painting the everyday, Gardner paints leisure. His figures are occupied with recreational activities: consulting a restaurant menu, reading a book, taking a bath, gardening, collecting, reading on the beach... Subjects that, in his own words, "are not dramatic, but have potential for introspection."
