This exhibition riffs on the art I was seeing in trips to India, Italy and France this year, particularly religious art and that from the Baroque and Rococo eras.
Jones draws upon the fundamentals of “Maximalism” with a “more is more” approach as she fills the paintings to the brim with unscripted lines that dance in and out of view. The layering of colour pushes deep tones back and pulls lighter marks forward, giving a sense of ambience in a weightless space. The spaces in between the travelled lines are the moments of quiet in works which speak volumes. She gives the viewer so much more it is impossible to stand before the work without a quiet moment of awe.”
