Helen Jones

Helen Jones

Helen Jones' paintings are inspired by her surroundings: predominantely land and sea. Early morning or late afternoon walks with her dogs enable her to return to a good few hours of painting in her studio on those days that permit.

Working with a vague memory of tones and images in her mind she works quickly intent on capturing the energy and emotion of the day. Her paintings are a response to the vitality of a moment - its fluidity, the sense of urgency or timelessness.

Regular coastal walks help keep the energy in her work fresh. Somedays there is such stillness to the day that the canvases which follow are calmer; but on the other days the energy is so vibrant the palette knife can barely move the oil quickly enough or respond fast enough to give credit to the buoyancy of a given second.

Helen's painting has become like her own visual diary, a response to the beauty of the landscape, the elements and moods to which we consciously and subconsciously respond. The smaller canvas allows a snap-shot of energy for a given moment - the essence of the landscape and the day itself. Helen turns feelings into paintings.

Changing skies and reflective seas surge with a captitve energy creating a drama that warrants a "still". Her paintings are as intuitive as they are contemplative. Her way of working is collective and not dissimilar to literally being with one's sketchbook. A memoir of the day and place.
