Jonathan Meuli at Gallery TEN
I have been painting professionally since I graduated from the Ruskin School of Drawing in 1982. During these years I have painted full-time for two periods: 1984 – 1989, and 1999 to the present. The first of these periods was spent mostly in West Cornwall, (where, as a child, I had my first lessons in painting and drawing from the sculptor Paul Mount, and the mosaic artist Jeanne Mount in St Just in Penwith). I also painted for substantial periods in Portugal and in Italy. The second period has been spent mostly in Scotland and France.
in 2011 I completed a research project for the Institution of Civil Engineers, consisting of twelve large paintings together with an online photo sketchbook. Full information on this project is available at http://icepaint.wordpress.com
in 2011 – 2012 I undertook two large commissions on architectural subjects for private clients – one focusing on London’s South Bank (images at http://www.flickr.com/photos/meuli-art/sets/72157627306376811/
The second was for two large paintings of the construction of the Al Bahr towers in Abu Dhabi by Aedas architects ( http://www.aedas.com/). Read more about this commission. Images of the paintings and of the sketches are available to view at http://www.flickr.com/photos/meuli-art/sets/
