CULTIVATING THE DUTCH TRADITION IN THE 21st CENTURY

Jane Jones' Hyperrealist Floral Paintings
 

"I have loved and been influenced by the flowers and symbolism of17th Century Dutch Still Life painting for many years and have worked to figure out and incorporate symbolism into my paintings for a long time.  In the paintings made specifically for this show that symbolism has become more pointed and direct.  This show presents paintings with the ideas of risk and protection but goes further to express my concern and fear about the changes and destruction of this planet due to Climate Change."

-Jane Jones-

"Jane Jones has an admirable gift for banishing extraneous details in order to focus on the elegance of flowers, juxtaposing their organic forms with the geometric rigidity of their vases, and the stones she sometimes includes, and even of the square or rectangular canvas itself. Her still life paintings highlight what Jones calls the “everyday triumphs of nature” and the “power, beauty, and fragility of life,” none of which should ever be taken for granted."
-Peter Trippi, Editor-in-Chief, Fine Art Connoisseur, New York, NY-
