Jo Jones













Jo Jones


Jo Jones' work is concerned with the human form and its relationships with and comparisons to landscape and environment, which are constantly important to her. She has always enjoyed working with clay as a medium to replicate scale and texture. My sculptures are ambiguous, self-contained characters - contemplative, quiet, serene, with heads bowed or skyward looking - together yet apart.

While landscape is a huge influence, she also draws a great deal from early fifteenth century Renaissance artists such as Giotto, Simone Martini, Masaccio, Pierro della Francesca and many more fresco painters - I find their boldness and simplicity remarkable.

She has exhibited in many places including Chichester Cathedral, Chapel Row Gallery Bath, Artspace, The Sculpture Show, Cube Gallery Bristol, The Life Building City of London, The Guild Bristol and many more. Her work is also held in private collections in Australia, USA, and Denmark as well as some commissioned portraits.

Jo Jones studied sculpture under Ivor Roberts-Jones and Michael Kenney at Goldsmiths College during the 1960's. She then attended Reading University for a postgraduate teaching year. Jo then moved to Bristol where she taught art and continued to develop her work.

"My work investigates the relationship between control and entropy, growth and decay, fear and desire. I approach painting as a vehicle for metaphor, and through it, explore the contradictions inherent to experience"












Erin Whitman







Erin Whitman was born in San Diego, and grew up with a pencil in her hand. She graduated with honors from Humboldt State University in 2003 with degrees in Studio Art and Art History. After earning an MFA in Painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2006, she returned to Northern California to teach drawing and painting at her alma mater, as well as at College of the Redwoods. Deeply inspired by her students, she decided to leave Humboldt County in 2012 and embark on a project that explores our precarious moment in history. In 2012 and 2013 she has participated in artist residencies across the United States, such as the Wassaic Project, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Vermont Studio Center, and Ucross Foundation, and is developing a new body of work that investigates the mythology that shapes our cultural identity.
