Made in 2014 while a fellow in printmaking at the City and Guilds of London Art school and recently editioned, the print began with thoughts on speaking and listening. Influences included Sylvia Plath’s, ‘The Bell Jar’, the science experiment of placing a ringing alarm clock inside a bell jar and gradually removing the oxygen until the sound is no longer audible and bees and the decrease in their numbers.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Katherine Jones makes distinctive images that are inhabited by ordinary objects, spaces and buildings. Often the structures depicted are fragile or vulnerable, covered or transparent. They are a framework the artist uses to begin to question perceptions of safety and danger. These issues are under the surface of her everyday as an artist –mother and an individual in a challenged world environment.
In 2022 Katherine Jones was elected as a Royal Academician.
Her work is included in major collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum; National Art Library; The House of Lords; University College, London; Hospitals Art Collection; Government Art Collection; Royal Festival Hall; WinchesterCollege; EtonCollege; Ashmolean Museum,Oxford; University of Chichester Art Collection; University of Warwick Art Collection; RWA, Royal West of England Academy, Bristol; Lafayette College, Boston Athenaeum; Wellesley Library; Swathmore College, PA; Yale University Library, CT; United Therapeutics Art Collection; Guangdong Museum, China.
