Hedgehog

By Jon McNaught

Screen print, edition of 30, 14cmx18.5cm, Arches 88 paper.

Reading Frenzy is pleased to present UK artist, Jon McNaught, for a one weekend exhibit (April 26-29, reception on Friday, April 26th, 6pm-9pm) coinciding with the 10th Annual Stumptown Comics Fest at One Grand Gallery (1000 E Burnside). Passing Time is a collection of suburban landscapes and everyday vignettes, which provide a deeper exploration of the environments of McNaught's comics; from the windswept shores of Pebble Island to the suburban streets of Dockwood. These prints are loving tributes to ordinary places, from bus stops, to empty beaches, based on quiet corners of Britain. This show collects together screen prints, lithographs, and linocuts, alongside selected original artwork from Dockwood.

Jon McNaught lives in Bristol, England where he works as a printmaking instructor at the University of the West of England. He is the author of the graphic novellas Birchfield Close, Pebble Island and the recently released Dockwood, for which was awarded the Prix de Revelation which "recognises the work of an author's early artistic career" at the 40th Festival International de la Bande Dessinee d'Angouleme.

"There are few younger comics artists with whom I feel a genuine aesthetic kinship, but the radiant and glowing Dockwood is Jon McNaught's loveliest argument yet for the beauty of just being alive. It's a gem." -- Chris Ware

Special thanks to Nobrow, Stumptown Comics Fest, and One Grand Gallery.
