“Jeffrey Cortland Jones describes painting as a physical activity and a material practice, rather than a narrative tool. Jones used to paint large and graphic works using big brushes and latex house paint and tar, but transformed his practice after encountering the work of Anselm Kiefer. He has since used his medium to explore optical changes that occur between subtly different hues, opacity and transparency, matte and glossy surfaces, and warm and cool tones. His most iconic works feature strong geometric compositions, and light colors—for this, he has jokingly acquired the reputation of being a painter who paints white. Jones also extends his studio practice to the street, where he paints large-scale versions of his color block explorations.”
