'No Time Like the Present' – at Hampstead Garden Gallery 25th Sept - 10th Oct 2021

New paintings by Sal Jones produced during 2020-2021, whilst in and out of lockdown.

The exhibition features many recognisable subjects from film and drama series in particular Bond and Bond women, in a timely exhibition, coinciding with the postponed release of the much anticipated new Bond film – No Time To Die.

Gestural mark making, textures and saturated colours of Sal's oil paintings animate the subjects, whilst the titles (sometimes appearing in the paintings) quite literally speak to us; engaging us in a sort of conspiratorial conversation. Whether you recognise the subjects or not you are drawn into their world as they demand your attention. Poignant and playful the works can be seen as a comment or observation on life, love and emotional empathy.
