Reece Jones

(b 1976Botswana. Lives and works in London)

Jones’s process-led practice challenges preconceptions of drawing and traditional materials.

His drawings are somewhat cinematic or mechanical in appearance, giving the impression of being taken directly from a filmic or photographic source. His imagery is often reinvented or abstracted from a varied range of archival material.

More broadly, Jones use of charcoal scraped back with a blade and barely there watercolour give a sense of shifting impermance to reference intangible, uncertain spaces, objects and ideas, Recurrent themes in his work include the sublime, the American wilderness, modernism, land art, archaeology, cinema, mythology, spectacle, photography and the illusive nature of time.
