gva_jim_jones_exhibition

Glynn Visual Arts Presents “Spatial Concepts”: Tuesday 3rd to Tuesday 31st, January 2017

Three-dimensional (3-D) art is observed in terms of its height, width, and depth. Conceptual art is art in which concepts or ideas are communicated through unique and often metaphorical use of time, space, materials, and imagery, inviting the viewer to do more than just take the casual, off-handed glance. It invites viewers to think and ask questions. What is the artist attempting to communicate? Why this material, why this juxtaposition, why this size, why this image, why this color…? In this new exhibition at Glynn Visual Arts, the 3-D work of Jim Jones will make you think.

Local artist Jim Jones is both a dedicated conservator and a lifelong hunter-gatherer. Jones’ sculptural efforts focus upon the darker side of nature, in which evolutionary fact sometimes becomes mixed with anthropomorphic allusion, in a cornucopia of life forms gone wrong. An uncomfortable relationship between man and beast and suggestions of man’s beastly behavior suffuse these works with an intrinsic strength of expression that is, at times, too close for comfort. Shadows sometimes suggested in Jones’ paintings become real as life in the three dimensions of his sculptural works. http://www.jimjonesart.com/ Phone: 912-638-8770
