John Ledger's chaotic and warped landscapes observe the structures of civilisation with a sense of suspicion, irony and dark humour.

John Ledger - Ill Equipped

Influenced by his environmental work and writings from literature, lyrics and journalism, John's paintings are a form of resistance and catharsis as he peers into the 21st century, challenging ideologies and aspirations along with his own feelings of helplessness. In Ill Equipped, four works depict mutated natural forms and a disorderly play of power, technology, social relations and mediated information, punctuated by large scale centerpiece The Alpha Forest, a metaphor for extinction and struggle for autonomy in the landscape of late capitalism.

John is based at Hive Gallery in Elsecar.
