PREVIEW: TUESDAY 12 NOVEMBER 5-7PM
In his much anticipated upcoming exhibition Ross Jones invites us to engage with the great question, ‘What If?’, and has created paintings in which he answers the question with vibrant whimsy and nostalgic resonation.
Jones offers, “’What If’ is a phrase where anything is possible. ‘What If’ is for daydreamers and storytellers. A seaplane can land in the pool of a roof top bar to pick you up or drop you off. Retro tin toys take on over-sized or life-size proportions in urban settings”.
Jones paints in both large and mid-scale. His meticulously detailed bright and vivid scenes connect with playful notions of juxtaposition.
A cruise liner setting sail through a sea of sunflowers or a vase of summer blooms seemingly floating above a city skyline place ‘man-made’ and ‘nature’ together harmoniously. Jones sensitively and deftly dispels any hint of discordance between the two, allowing us to wander freely through his joyful ‘What If’.
