Reece Jones (British, b. 1976 Gaberone, Botswana)
Reece Jones makes large scale drawings using charcoal. Essentially process based, they are developed using a system of application and erasure. Building up complex invented landscapes and locations only to systematically erode them using glass papers. Responding to the new-found nuances of surface, tonality and description created by this aggressive intervention, Jones re-builds the images only to repeat the process time and time again. The results are shimmering, atmospheric, sub-narrative works, which appearing almost filmic - belie their rudimentary material composition.
