Selected finalist

‘Painting 218 (The Domain)’ has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious Wynne Prize.

Commenting on ‘Painting 218 (The Domain)’ for the AGNSW, Jones explains:

‘This landscape is a reflection of everyday life. It depicts a walk, which I took to the Art Gallery of New South Wales with my son. It had just stopped raining and the sun was reflecting on the wet trees and pathway, creating a silvery light.

I enjoyed experimenting with collage to produce this work. It is one of the more abstract landscapes I have produced. It felt free from formal constraints. I worked quickly and intensely on each assembled piece. Applying thin acrylic washes to raw plywood added an element of unpredictability and immediacy, like working in a sketchpad.’

The Wynne Prize is judged by the trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
