About the work of David R. L. Jones ... more >

David R. L. Jones, who studied at the prestigious London Goldsmiths College, works with aluminum panels, on which he applies several elaborate layers of synthetic resin (polyurethane), oil paint and again very fine ink drawings.

"It's the not knowing that's important. I don't work in terms of conscious messages. I have to be revealing something to myself while I'm doing it. Later, when people ask me to talk about what I've made, it always seems strange. It's the work that's talking; I'm listening." David R. L. Jones
