“Artist Statement
I seek to explore the human individual’s search for harmony in a transient life: a longing and loss, and the desire for movement and displacement along the fugitive passing of time. The narratives feel perpetually on the cusp of some sort of change or migration, of travel to another place, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual. They offer an escape, but often linger on those moments when contentment seems out of reach.

Against sublime backdrops of mountainous landscapes, the figures appear jaded and disillusioned as if in complete disregard to their prodigious surroundings. This unexpected sense of disenchantment underscores the impression of temporality and displacement in the narrative, while also emphasizing the disjunction between internal human consciousness and the external realm of nature.”

Erik Jones "Was born in 1982 in a sunny beach community in St. Petersburg Florida. 
He received a bachelor’s degree from Ringling College of Art and Design in 2007. 
Out of college, Working primarily in cover illustration, Erik toured the US, showing 
at different pop culture and art conventions. He gradually made his way to 
Brooklyn, New York in 2009, where he now resides.   Erik’s work is vibrant and colorful, expressing a heightened sense of realism, captured 
in his female subjects, juxtaposed with sporadic mark making and nonrepresentational 
forms that could be said to mimic geometric high-end fashion. This effect is achieved by 
using multiple mediums such as watercolor, colored pencil, acrylic, water-soluble wax pastel and water-soluble oil on paper mounted to board.“
