Patrick Jones is one of England's foremost and respected abstract painters.
His work is characterised by its colour,vibrancy and size. His survey show at the Poussin Gallery entitled 'Reprise' referred to his continual renewal of abstract imagery and poetic design.
He likes to work on large unprimed canvas, improvising a varied technique, like a giant watercolour. The pigment is highly charged and intense, so working flat on the floor allows the thin washes to overlay and dry.
He is aiming at creating an eloquent and expressive pictorial lanquage like his great hero the catalan painter, Juan Miro. His influences are many from early european modernists like Juan Gris and Georges Braque to american abstract expressionists, Pollock and Morris Louis.
He is an inspirational teacher and has taught extensively in England and the USA, most notably at Wimbledon School of Art and Hunter College in New York. His Abstract Art Course has run for the past fifteen years and is ongoing.
