Jones focuses almost exclusively on landscapes, painting largely from memory of a childhood spent in the rural Upstate of South Carolina. The scenes are pointedly simple – fields overtaken my kudzu, forgotten peach orchards and overgrown fields – and recall long days spent on horseback exploring her surroundings. But the work is less sentimental than it is dark and moody, with something of an existential quality. “To me, all landscapes are self portraits,” Jones says. “Trees serve as surrogates for the human form. Skies reflect mood. Even the lay of the land, whether rolling and expansive or flat and confined, represents less the world around me than a world within.”
