About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.

    I am imagining the smaller works becoming more important over time…like little satellites or ‘bugs’…a type of bacteria spreading like spores from the larger works. Good hear you are about to finish a new larger piece of art. I look forward to seeing it. I’m going ‘ok’ thanks John. I know that I don’t have to put on any ‘aires and graces’ with you, as in ‘oh yeah things are going really well and I have loads of ideas that are coming together in the most magnificently profound way’…this is not the case and I wouldn’t want it to! Anyway, yes I’m ticking over ok at the moment. I’m working on a piece that is a collaboration and also nurturing my way of working in the studio.

    For some ideas yeah. But it’s take me a while to build up a working-method on A4 that I’m confident with. Although I am close to finishing one the really large pieces again, which I may have to ask Rich T to frame for me again, if he is up for it. How are you?

    Do you find working at A4 scale more immediate?
