In 2007 Jonathan Cole was tragically killed in an accident in Cambodia at the age of 44. In his Hastings studio he left behind a large collection of paintings spanning more than twenty years. Seven years on this exhibition will both introduce Cole’s late works to a new audience, and serve as a timely opportunity for those familiar with his work to see it again in a new context.


Along with the Publication, Hocus Pocus, that accompanies the exhibition, many of the paintings will be available for sale with the profits going towards the Jon Cole Memorial Fund, which will be used to set up an annual art prize.
