‘So Square So True’

date : 2003

size : 37½” x 38”

medium : oil on canvas.

notes : This work first showed at Jones’ ‘iCons’ exhibition in Derry, Northern Ireland. Lampooning the notion of ‘Cool Britannia’, the painting, executed in his favoured impasto technique, depicts the iconic ‘mod’ target, synonymous with 1960’s ‘Swinging London’, wittily squared.

comment : “Brit Art, Cool Britannia; square, because they are”.
