Marc Straus presents a new series of work by Chris Jones
Installation view.

NEW YORK, NY.- Chris Jones works with images found in discarded printed materials or culled from the endless online flow, generally beginning with a single photograph before sourcing further related imagery to extract often absurd or surreal narrative developments.

This new series of work looks at a variety of systems – systems of display, production, and organization, seemingly random in subject matter. Jones explores their fictional entropic breakdowns via the transformation into image.

Following the naturally chaotic order/disorder of the collage process, Jones allows incongruous elements to creep in, cutting through and merging with various depicted chronologies and scales. All space and time cross over and interact, imbuing the fixed photographic image with a fluidity more akin to memory or imagination.

Further to these wall based collages, a series of elements have been singled out and explored in a fuller three-dimensional form; though as with all the work, the depicted and the real spaces are indeterminate and interchangeable.

The sculptures depict fleeting and intangible things, such as fire and smoke, or perishable things like fruit or snow. Conversely there are also things synonymous with permeance: a mountain, monuments, manufactured objects, that have succumbed to similar erosions.

Chris Jones earned an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, London 2002. Jones was awarded an artist residency at the Hudson Valley MOCA (Peekskill, NY) in 2008 followed by a solo show at the museum. Jones has participated in numerous group international shows, notably at The Oakland University Art Gallery, Michigan (2014), Prague Biennial (2013), Manchester Art Gallery (2012), Knoxville Art Museum (2014).
