Nicholas Jones (b. 1965) is a British landscape painter, who for the last three decades has explored the rich terrain between abstraction and figuration. His work is distinctive in its evocations of the way in which light interacts with the land, and is driven by a deep longing for spacious stillness and balance.
“Nicholas Jones is among those who believe it is still possible to say something meaningful and exciting by applying paint to canvas. Braver still, he chooses to work within the long tradition of landscape painting that has flourished with particular vigour in this country. True, his landscapes are largely abstract. Yet there is in them the same identification with the spirit of place that permeates the great line of English landscapists, from the Norfolk school through Turner and Samuel Palmer to Paul Nash and the neo-Romantics led by Graham Sutherland, and some members of the St Ives school, notably Peter Lanyon.”
Journalist and author of acclaimed biographies of Graham Sutherland and Henry Moore.
Nicholas Jones is represented by the Crane Kalman Gallery, London
