Art of a Journeyman by John Jones

“ART OF A JOURNEYMAN"

Exhibition by John Jones - Forza 9 Gallery, Polis Chrysochous
10 April – 6 May 2009
 
Art that invites to be touched. Art that is visual and tactile that responds to its own skin. The work of artist/writer John Jones can be characterised as sculptural paintings. According to the artist “the physical nature of being is all about touch” and therefore his work represents the physical nature of art.
 
The striking visual impact of the canvasses reflects the strong influence of theatre on the artist. The Zen-like simplicity of the design combined with the 3-dimensional effects results in powerful art work that is one of a kind.
 
The canvasses are pure acrylic compound whereas the 'rose' canvases are in a cement based compound.
 
John Jones was born in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England in 1950. Currently he resides in Devon, England. Besides painting John's other interests are photography and writing.
 
Johns work has sold in Aus,USA and Europe including exhibitions in London and Catalunya. In 1984 he was resident artist at Bickleigh Mill Devon. His previous projects include theatre design, musical and dramatic theatre and this April his most recent work is coming to Cyprus.
 
Commissions can be taken for all the works displayed. The starting price for commissions is from € 85,- per square foot.
 
The official opening of the show Art of a Journeyman is on Friday, 10th of April at 7PM. The exhibition will run until May 6th.
