Jean Machine x Artist Greg Eason
Jean Machine Founders, Tony Lonsdale and daughter, Chloe Lonsdale.
Recently Jean Machine, the premier denim shop on Kings Road in London during the 1970s, has been relaunched as a menswear brand following their success of it's female counterpart MiH Jeans. To compliment the relaunch, Jean Machine presented an exclusive 2-part one night only exhibition with artist Greg Eason. The show entitled 'Focus' was held in Soho's Recess Gallery and London's Protein Gallery the later parts of March.
One half of Eason's works were bite-sized drawings, which used detail within detail to depict humans placed against a vast amount of open space. The idea was to portray man not so much as the center of the universe, but as a piece in the puzzle. Another set of works displayed well rendered religious, life and death iconography. Not siding for or against religion, Eason simply asks how does the populous continue to accept certain customs and tenets despite modern, factual, scientific evidence, which refutes many religious claims? Additionally, Eason commented on humanity's cycle of life with symbols of eggs and skeletal structures.
