‘Pop?’

date : 2002

size : 43½” x 32½”

medium : oil and collage on canvas.

notes : This painting is graphics as fine art, fine art as graphics. Within the impastoed background, Jones has collaged bus tickets, stickers, and other found objects into the surface of the paint.

comment : “Journeys : like Kurt Schwitters, I’m fascinated by bus tickets and train tickets, which I collect for collage. This painting was a real pointer for the direction of my new works – a marker on a mapless route. I’ve since applied the conclusions reached on completion, to all subsequent paintings and prints. A satori; a kick in the eye”.
