Phillip Jones

Central Library, October 2014


This month we're pleased to feature the work of Phillip Jones at the Central Library.

"My paintings are primarily in watercolour. Frequently they combine abstraction and figuration where details of nature and landscape are represented by various painting textures on abstract forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. Nonetheless, it is important to me to graduate transition of light, colour and contrast to maintain a sense of depth in landscapes that leads the viewer around and into the painting."
