Our instagram takeover for 1st-7th March is jonathan.alibone

Read Jonathan’s interview with CVAN via the link in our bio.

Jonathan Alibone is a UK born artist based in Northampton, England, and is currently a resident at The Sanctuary studios. 

His practice articulates contemporary social, cultural, and environmental anxieties through the conventions of the landscape and Romantic traditions in Western art. By referencing geology and archaeological methodology, Alibone explores myths of origin and national identity within the present (and historical) context of uncertainty and rupture.
