Biography

Working on an impressive scale, utilising domestic craft and consumable goods, Jones sculptures and installations invite us to reflect on personal and collective desire in the context of mass consumerism and its global impact. Challenging us to consider what happens when we push ourselves to the edge of reason, Jones' tongue in cheek take on how innocent belief systems can lead to power corrupt, provide commanding encounters. Drawing on European ecclesiastical references and more recent shocking media imagery such as Mugabe's rebels wreaking havoc in Toyotas, Jones creates disconcerting myths and insights into belief systems and the shadowy narratives of concealed worlds - whether that be the church or British holidaymaker traditions.
