Mary Jones: Interview

Jonathan Chapline and Lorraine Nam visit the Chelsea studio of painter Mary Jones.

Jones comments that in her paintings "there’s an implied figure and it’s usually sort of a very ancient prehistoric Greek Cycladic reference. I wanted to reference something prehistoric and from the beginning of human history to sort of connect with that primal part of art making. I think in terms of gestural painting, it roots them in another kind of impulse-the desire to find form in something and find form in chaos and to make it in this case, pretty literal."
