Rachel Jones received her BA from Southeastern Oklahoma State University and her MFA from the University of New Orleans. Jones has exhibited nationally and internationally. Her work has been reviewed in Time Out Chicago, Pelican Bomb and Artforum Online among others.
Jones describes herself primarily as a painter with a style that straddles the line between representation and abstraction. Jones culls much of her imagery from ‘dated, mass-produced nature and science book sets, reference books, and textbooks.’
In the artist’s own words “I am attempting to re-imagine minor, forgotten, mass-produced images as things that are new, singular, and permanent”. You can check out Rachel’s work here.
