Kelly Jones - A Modern Artist
STORY OF AN ARTIST
I am still discovering myself as an artist, and I hope it is a never-ending journey. I believe in the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi: the art of imperfection. Wabi-sabi is everything that today’s sleek, mass-produced, technology-saturated culture isn’t. It’s flea markets, not shopping malls; aged wood, not swank floor coverings; one single morning glory, not a dozen red roses. Wabi-sabi understands the tender, raw beauty of a gray December landscape and the aching elegance of an abandoned building or shed. My inspiration is nature, and my muse is color. New color combinations I want to try keep me awake at night.
I just love to play with color, and want to bring beauty into the world. Some artists strive to shock the viewer or make a statement, but my goal is to make unique, beautiful things.
"I am always doing what I cannot do yet in order to learn how to do it"
Vincent Van Gogh
"The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection"
