Branwen Jones

Jones’ work addresses a range of concerns which are primarily political and often related to the history of colonialism and its contemporary legacies. Her current practice explores how an idea might be embedded within material and form or suggested across a juxtaposition of images. This allows space for ambiguity, interpretation, playfulness or humour; it evades the precision and authority of a written analysis.

Jones creates work in a range of media including drawing, stop-frame animation, sculpture, printmaking, and site-specific installation. She often uses materials which are found, collected or given. Recent materials have included newspaper, tissue-paper, wire, wax, cotton, turmeric, milk, charcoal, plastic, and floorboards. Her desire to learn skills of physical making is a critical response to a world which is increasingly mediated through the screen.
