Rhythm Adjust (16/37)


"Generally my studio practice centres around a very developed material process which is determinedly figurative, suggests narrative and which relates in part to photo-realism. However, this is always tethered to other interests such as formal abstraction, surface, duration, doubt and an enquiry into authorship.

This fundamental need for a broader exploration means that when attempting to cultivate or rationalise a body of work I need to step away from the direct representation of ‘things’ and to understand how my practice relates (for example) to arrangement, language or composition. As a result every series of work I have ever made is created alongside other more ephemeral activities. These can vary from compositional thumbnails to collages to minimal abstractions, offering poetic alternatives to the world I’m building.... or in recent times text works which expand my thematic reasoning, act as a key to the work or (just as crucially) give flight to alternative readings. Perhaps themes are swimming into focus in my work and I want to relieve myself of the responsibility to complete, contain or package it all conceptually? The watercolours can offer me a chance to do that.

Lately these activities have taken on a more significant role. What may have begun as a tributary activity is now fundamental and can exist on its own terms." - Reece Jones, 2021
