Jonathan Wade


Current works are series of three dimensional compositions of related and/or contrasting objects.
They are a reaction to real and mapped urban landscapes, and the planned or random groupings of objects therein.
They reference detritus as much as high design, and the various patterns found in man-made environments.
The intent is to create interesting visual relationships through subtle variation of repeated forms, or through more apparent distinctions in surface and shape.
