BIO: Angie Jones is a contemporary American artist residing in Los Angeles at the largest art colony in the world - The Brewery Arts Complex. Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, she moved to California in 1995 to work as an animator in the motion picture industry. After two decades working on award winning Hollywood Blockbusters, Jones returned to traditional mediums and original content through painting. Angie's work has been included in group shows at galleries and museums nationwide including the Laguna Art Museum, James Gray Gallery, Fullerton Art Museum, and The Chandler Center for Art in Arizona.
STATEMENT: “Participating Perception”
My work begins not in the digital and not in the physical, but in the mix that our minds make of the two.
The abstracted paintings mirror our 8-bit, computer generated counter culture. The "peak shift" palette and portrayal of persona through paint is inspired by my 20 year career as an artist working in Visual Effects, Video Games and Animation. Maintaining one foot in the past and another in the future I use digital manipulation, 17th century oil painting techniques, sacred geometry, the computer glitch and complex color theories. Mine, is a deconstructed, neo-geo perspective defined by creating something new, from something old and making it new again. Influenced by the genres of Abstract Expressionism, Fauvist Painting, and Neo Conceptualism, I mix these with modern day sitters and represent idiosyncratic faces. The goal is to capture the essence of what makes us uniquely human reclaiming depth and beauty from the cold impersonal nature of digital imagery making it human and humane again.
The neo/geo-nature of my work is like a coil that returns to the beginning and cycles back again. I trace a loop to a cultural past, and a return to my own work. I am questioning influences on society and our role within a culture bombarded by flickering screens, technology and commercialism. I compose from the interaction created with space and require a dialog with the viewer to create the final piece.
This is what I call participating perception.
