Alex Jones

Alex Jones is an artist based in Brighton, East Sussex, who is primarily concerned with material language, exploring the relationship between the language of materials and language as material. Operating within the dialect of painting his work is more constructed than painted, echoing his background in studying sculpture rather than painting. Language is used in a perfunctory manner; square groupings of text serve to create a shape rather than communicate an image. The blue frame acts as punctuation between the language, the formal structures becoming new letter forms themselves.
