Graphite and vellum is all artist Terri Jones needs in order to illustrate the simple beauty of what art making is all about. Using the concept of a meticulously drawn line, circle, shape or word as an expression of form and content, Jones creates installations that continue beyond the paper onto the gallery walls. Void of any distractions, the viewer is able to focus on the emotional effects of the esoteric and minimal qualities of her work.
At other times, working with spare materials or found objects, Jones focus is on how space is transformed by objects. A single line of glass balls hang as though suspended on a wall; a neon horseshoe hangs atop a doorway; a florist’s vase is etched with a single word and then projected onto the wall by light placement.
Jones received a BFA from the Atlanta College of Art. She was recipient of a Southern Arts Federation/NEA individual artist Fellowship award for her work on paper. She has been included in prestigious group shows throughout Europe and the US.
