Rachel Jones large paintings immerse us in her inner life full of contrasts. Her soulful pieces are touching and soothing. She also spells out her challenges as a young British female artist.
Rachel Jones’ monumental paintings evoke a sensory, bodily experience upon viewing. Vibrantly coloured lines and patterns clash and pulsate feverishly across the canvas, hinting at recognisable forms before giving way to pure abstraction.
“I’ve always been interested in doing work that reflects my world experience,” says the artist, who attended the prestigious Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Academy Schools in London.
On her portfolio page, Jones “repeats motifs and symbols across her series to create associative, even familial, relationships between them, underscoring their kinship as part of her ongoing investigation of identity.”
