date : 2005
size : 17½” x 24”
medium : collage.
notes : Collage-based survey of Britain's capital city; this iconoclastic and controversial piece features Jones' acerbic observations. Fully titled ‘Welcome To Babylondon’, the work also features two verses from William Blake's ‘London’ poem comprising the border.
comment : “The last time I got back, I thought ‘…it was like Babylon…’. Blakes’ ‘New Jerusalem’? At times, but more often, I think he must have been having a laugh. I have a love / hate relationship with the place; both a prayer, and a curse, for Caer Llundain”.
