Jones, a Southeastern Ohio Native, pours his real-life experience into his work, which represents both the natural and holistic need to escape, as well as the many layers of the human experience. Conjuring the artistic influence of British sculptor, Andy Goldsworthy, Jones seeks to contrast the mundanity of the professional world he has experienced with the effusion and movement of nature as represented in the colors and textures of his paintings.
