I am delighted to showcase the work of the amazingly talented American painter and printmaker Jasper Johns. It is no surprise that he has become one of most significant and influential American painters of the twentieth century. I initially spotted his work in the Tate Art Gallery, Liverpool and was instantly captivated.
His work includes a range of subject matter from flags and targets, to letters and numbers. It is his particular piece ‘0 to 9’ that I love, where large scribbled numbers are positioned on top of each other to create an unusual layered piece of art.
