Kevin H. Jones
Kevin H. Jones’ latest exhibition, Strange Weather, presents us with two new exciting bodies of work. This showing is an investigation consisting of collage, decollage, and digital montage. Jones incorporates charts, diagrams, and images from popular culture as tools of comprehension of the natural world. Building upon his past compositions, these structured forms and ordered systems provide a sense of clarity and control over the complexity of nature. However in this new exhibition, he challenges the perceived authority of these visual systems. Through the layering of charts and diagrams, Kevin disrupts their logical order, infusing them with ambiguity and suggesting alternative narratives. In doing so, he invites viewers to question the limitations of our understanding and to embrace the inherent mystery and beauty that lies beyond our comprehension.

The physical and digital layering of Kevin Jones’ artwork becomes a metaphorical act, mirroring the intricacies and multiplicity of meaning found in our world. These layers embody the interplay between perception and interpretation, as they move in and out of coherence, shifting between meaning and nonsense. This fluidity echoes the dynamic nature of our existence, where meanings are not fixed but rather subject to the flux of individual experiences and cultural contexts.

Ultimately, Kevin seeks to engage viewers in a contemplative journey. Through the amalgamation of digital processes, collage, popular culture, childhood memories, and the enigma of charts and diagrams, he strives to evoke emotion, ignite curiosity, and spark conversation. Kevin invites viewers to explore the shifting layers of meaning, to challenge the assumptions that underpin our understanding, and to embrace the beauty of ambiguity and the vastness of possibility.
