Time Walk presents a series of paintings that take up the artiface and the exaggeration of Mannerism, and the decadence and pageantry of Rococo. After a residency in Udine and Venice, Italy (funded by a grant from the Kossak Painting Program at Hunter College), and Paris, France, (organized by Galerie Jérôme Pauchant) Jones’s newest body of work references Giambattista Tiepolo, Jean- Honoré Fragonard, the Hudson River School painters, and the digital environments of open world fantasy Role Playing Games. The paintings generate a multivalent topology by layering simultaneous alternative realities. Guided as much by history as by affect, Time Walk centers the viewer as an active participant in the narrative of each paintings’ field of significations.
