The sharp geometry and condensed colour in the paintings of Stewart Jones draw parallels to how a set designer or director would seek out scenes for a movie, searching for a place that commands the essence of a location.(See previous Art Junkie post on this artist, here.)
His latest exhibition, Landscapes for Film, is inspired by Jones’s experience as an animator, an artistic director for films, and as an urban and landscape painter. “Each of these areas speaks to our need to capture the energy of a place, be it a city street, a long stretch of road, or graffiti’d alleyway,” the Wall Space gallery says.
