Alvey Jones

 


 

           A recognizable image--landscape, portrait or still life--usually forms the basis of a work. Sometimes Alvey Jones combines all three genres in a single painting in an attempt to explore the question of just what a landscape, portrait or still life might be.

Each painting is also a critical assumption about how to practice art and an aesthetic problem overlaid with meaning and history, an act of possession in which the world is reordered in his own image.
