While Jane Jones possesses a deep and un-abiding concern about the disruption of the balance of nature, she maintains a sense of hope from the everyday triumphs and beauty in nature. Her paintings embody a 21st-century sensibility of concern yet hope about destructive forces that put nature in peril and this layer has the transformative effect of elevating her paintings into prayers . . . reverent prayers for the botanical health of the world. Jane Jones explores flowers in exquisite detail. She also explores their fragility and their metaphysics. Her paintings celebrate beauty, but they also reveal the necessity to protect flowers.
While Jane Jones has been a life-long student of 17th-century Dutch floral painting, she takes a contemporary stylistic approach to her own work through spare composition that excludes extraneous details of the external world in order to focus on a moment of elegance, harmony, and dignity.
Jane Jones’ work is exhibited nationally in museums and galleries. Her paintings have won numerous national awards including the Award of Excellence in Blossoms ~ Art of Flowers which premiered at the Naples Museum of Art in 2011 and the Floral Award in the Annual Exhibition of the International Guild of Realism in 2013 and 2018. She is the author of Classic Still Life Painting and is represented by galleries in Boston, Denver, Santa Fe, and Scottsdale.
