Fleeting images of Victorian figures floating in and out of strangely contemporary settings - airports, subway mazes, malls...
...emotionally evocative soft colors that soothe and invite...
...dreams drifting away in the fog...
...these are a few of the descriptors that have been used to portray a Win Jones' watercolor. They are a start, but they don't capture the essence. His artwork is surreal, but not disconcerting - peaceful, yet provocative, drawing the thoughts and feelings into fresh areas.
A Win Jones painting stays in the mind after the initial encounter is over. It hangs on the wall not as a static picture, but as an image that changes as the viewer grows in familiarity and explores the emotional landscape.
Win Jones is a self taught watercolorist, influenced more by personal vision than by the styles of others. That might explain the subtle difference often felt by those who view the collection of his art. Few would dispute that this man's talent is genuine and his vision captivating, alluring, and relevant.
