Brian Jones Artist Bio

Brian R. Jones grew up in Syracuse, NY and is now an artist living and working in Portland, OR.

He earned an MFA degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX in 2007.

 

Brian Jones Artist Statement

My current work lies in my interest in the investigation of the transformative character of memories. A remembrance of a time, place, or day serves as the point of departure for contemplation of form, color, and tone. The nature of how the finished work reveals itself over time to an audience is the long echo of that initial reverie. My work is both a reservoir and an initiator of memories.
