Jones’ most recent work, Inertia, employs materials that - quite literally - show the effects of time and external forces. Steel canvases provide the backdrop for images of fairgrounds, Ferris wheels, and schoolyards. Layers of pigment become layers of time, memory, and nostalgia.
In the world of physics, the term inertia is used to describe the tendency for objects to keep doing what they are doing. In the exhibit, Jones’ Inertia asks what might happen if we escape – even for just a moment – the captivity of ordinary life.
