Erik Jones’ Motion

Erik Jones’ debut solo exhibition is called Motion and will be featured at Hashimoto in San Francisco. Most of Jones’ paintings consist of a surreal, abstract overlay, on top of a foundation of a photo-realistic painting — as if the surreal and abstract are hovering over reality. Some of his paintings contain only the abstract elements, better showing off the vibrancy and movement of his work.

“Using watercolor and colored pencil as the soft foundation upon which Jones’ figures manifest, oil paint and wax pastels are then layered upon the main subject in a more intuitive manner. These saturated patterns move around the figure, further highlighting various gestures or the occasional curious glance peering out from behind the colorful structures.”
