Martin Jones

Festival: 2016

I create portraits by painting individually, segments cut from drawn images. Rebuilding of the portraits creates chance outcomes as I aim to suggest a greater depth than the surface image most people present to the world. One project reflects on the contrasting fortunes of North and South Korean people and more recent portraits are inspired by a visit to New York.
My other body of work relates to bridges over the River Trent, not only providing geographical connections but also a link to childhood memories.
