‘Restless’ Exhibition

Timothy Jones


Exhibition: 16 – 30 June 2015, Parnell Gallery

Preview: Tuesday 16th Jun 5:30 PM

Timothy Jones’ abstract paintings reveal an ongoing investigation of elemental energy. Inspired by our natural surroundings in both colour and form these bold, flowing works on canvas seem to capture moments in an organic journey. The accomplished paint application respects both the medium and subject, each informing the other as with The Sea and the Sand.  Here the rolling horizontal shapes and energetic brushstrokes suggest a wild coastline in blue-grey tones, while still allowing the gritty, visceral reality of the paint on canvas. This fine balance can also be seen in Journey Closer where stunning earth tones might almost describe a primordial moment of impact and division into light and dark, fall-out in dribbles of paint freely running down the canvas. Others such as Exhale explore closely an exhilarating movement, again allowing all the varying texture of the paint to co-exist and feeling as if we existed within a breaking wave.

This fluid signature style is coupled with a parallel approach combining elements, words and imagery to raise questions about the human condition. Subtle hues and strong undertones compliment each other in these works, which explore emotion and philosophy. Pieces such as Somewhere to Call Home use striking juxtaposition of the light and dark tones of the animal to emphasise anthropomorphic qualities of strength and determination. Others such as Dawn Chorus and Swimming Pool have a more ethereal quality, with lighter washes suggesting the subject and inviting reflection on it’s nature from the artist, and in turn from us.

Jones’ affinity with the sea comes through strongly in his art, having spent several years working on yachts and circumnavigating the globe. His art enjoys high profile placements and is held in private collections throughout the world. In his latest show, Jones’ experience of life and paint provide a spectacular ride we are invited to join him on.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the
    simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
    as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take
    a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for
    quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve
    either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions
    to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d
    really appreciate it.

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Bless you
