Statement:

 

Jones' work explores the materiality of paint in relation to memory. Her most recent paintings primarily utilise cinematic source imagery of 90s romantic comedies and cult classics as a means to address the intangible nature of nostalgia through the constructs of film and painting. Impersonal and personal all at once, they allude to fragmented space whilst conjuring an internalised or other world. Glimpses of bare canvas root the paintings into our physical reality whilst the paint formulates its own; slivers of the imagined and real sit on the surface of the canvas serving as artefacts of the seen and the experienced.
