‘The Books We Carry’
New works by Michael Douglas Jones

Opening Reception October 29th 2016 from 11 AM – 2 PM

Michael D. Jones

 

Our featured artist for November is Michael Douglas Jones and his ‘The Books We Carry’ exhibit. His works will be on display in the shop from October 29th until November 30th, with a big kick-off reception on October 29th from 5-7pm.  Meet the artist, enjoy refreshments and mingle with other fans of beauty and talent.

After many years of using trompe l’oeil oil paintings to create the illusion of reality, Michael is now using collage to create the same effect. His training is in illustration and, even with an abstract piece, he creates a back-story or, at the very least, a symbolism. He starts any visual art project with an underlying story, even though that isn’t a necessary function of the design. It is simply his way of working. The objective in writing a narrative is to start with a foundation and then build layer upon layer visually, so that each piece resembles a book chapter as much as a design. Our art is our story.
