Jones on The Edge at the EAGM

Comments

Norma Jones' The Edge is now on display at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum.

Local artist Norma Jones' cutwork watercolour exhibit The Edge is now on display at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum's (EAGM) project wall.

An opening reception was held January 16 for Jones' work, and for the other exhibits that were recently installed at the EAGM.

Jones said the subject matter is based on abstract organic materials that are realistic, but with a twist that allows her to depict the edge of reality.

“This series of work has actually been ongoing for a number of years,” said Jones. “I go back and forth between realism and abstract design.”

For example, people can see vines in her work, she said.

“I start out with splatters and random shapes on paper, and then I cut out and decide what it makes me think of,” said Jones. “I don't really start out with a plan; it's more or less what shows up. So I'm assuming that whatever is in my mind at the time is what will come out.”

The cutwork watercolour paintings involve a very fine, detailed cutting of the paper, Jones said. She then places the paper onto a complimentary background.

Jones has been in numerous group exhibits over the years, but this is the first time that she has had a solo exhibit.

The Edge will remain on the project wall until February 26.
