Artist’s Bio: Robert Michael Jones uses a process of physical action and reaction to consciously resist finality and stasis of form in favor of gesture and incompleteness. Industrial manufactured materials and objects provide a historical framework for his reflections on culture and the ideas that drive it. Robert is fascinated with mythology and the illustration of character. He uses his knowledge of traditional mythology to construct characters in a modern canon of his own making.
