Stephen Jaques born Derby (UK) attended Derby College of Art and subsequently Canterbury College of Art. At Canterbury he encountered a group of artists influenced by American abstract painters. This modernist inheritance played a crucial role in Jaques’ development. After graduating he moved to London, setting up a studio with fellow artists. Over a period of time devoted to experimentation and exploration of the visual world Jaques moved away from the gestural elements of his early years to a new approach rooted in geometry and 'hard edge' painting. In 1995 he joined Art in Perpetuity Trust Studios in Deptford. Jaques has exhibited widely, from numerous group shows, including Arnolfini Gallery Bristol, Eagle Gallery London , Zillah Bell Gallery (curated by Mali Morris RA) 'Open Construction' and 'PossibleArchitectures' curated by Patrick Morrissey and Hanz Hancock of Saturation Point Projects and 'Switch' Pulchri Studios,The Hague Netherlands. In 2015 he was Exhibition Manager for 'Construction Industry' APT Gallery London curated by Geoffrey Rigden, a major survey of contemporary assemblage sculpture. Over the last couple of years Jaques has collaborated with Art Moorhouse Projects to exhibit his works in public spaces in London and Manchester. Recent exhibitions have included “Harder Edge” at hclublondon and Saatchi Gallery(curated by Dominic Beattie and Alexandra Hillman) as well as frequent appearances at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. His work is in private collections in the UK, Europe and USA.
