Exploring the parallels between desire, growth and surrender in times of uncertainty, Amsterdam-based artist Natisa Jones presents a series of paintings and a video work for her first solo exhibition in Singapore. Titled Despite the Havoc, the exhibition takes place at Hatch Art Project Gallery from 23 October – 21 November 2021. Jones’ new body of work entices us to examine the correlations between embracing change and navigating through chaos. Ideas of hope are substantially represented throughout works on canvas and paper, as well as on screen. Pieces are imbued with disarray but also assurance, in an elaborate visual outpour among emblematic forms where the tones are soft yet reverberant.
Themes of longing appear to be a continuity encompassing the whole exhibition. Jones’ subject matter deliberates the notion of desire and lust in a bewildering time, while contemplating that our complex emotions in the act of longing might be infused with a speck of greed. Although on the surface these artworks may come across as unrestrained, they reflect sentiments attune to the current climate.
