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"
Where to buy my artI am currently on a break from selling and trying to create a few new lines for sale in galleries and local shops in Prescott. Hoping to have them out by the end of 2022. Some of my work is available at The Prescott Art Market in the Gateway Mall (Prescott, AZ). Thank you for your interest!
