Jones is a series of collaborative paintings and drawings. Working together with my husband and son, three different approaches and hands are evident in the making. Family is an infrequent subject in art, but I was curious to see what would happen if we occupied the same visual space and if that might somehow speak to our familial relations. Despite the different sensibilities, the contributions seemed to arise naturally in relationship to each other, much like a plants growing in the same space and at least to my mind, a thoughtfulness and harmony exists between the input of each of us. The title is of course, a riff on the saying "keeping up with the Jones".
