A new exhibition is coming soon to the REDSEA Gallery at 27 James Street in Fortitude Valley and its expected to intrigue your mind and warm your soul.
From June 10 to July 6, the REDSEA gallery welcomes New Zealand artist Ross Jones and his solo exhibition titled ‘The Story So Far…’
It has been said that his style encapsulates the very art of storytelling through his love of distorted light and capturing a moment in time. But like all good stories, everything is not always as it seems.
Ross uses shadows to create just enough intrigue to tip the balance between a serene and sinister scene, leaving it up to the viewer to fill in the gaps and create their own story.
And after years of experimenting with different media and techniques, he arrived at a style that encapsulates his ideas, composition and colour palette and captures his own version of everyday life.
Ross Jones corporate and private collections have been held in England, Ireland, North America and in his homeland, New Zealand, making this soon-to-be open exhibition the artists first solo showcase here in Australia, and one definitely worth checking out considering its right here in our own backyard.
We’ll leave you with a little message from Ross himself –
“Don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story. As you view my paintings, don’t let your imagination stop you from seeing the bigger picture. How far the journey takes you is entirely up to you” – Ross Jones.
You can check out some of the intriguing artworks below, or on the artists official website. And don’t forget to look deeper, you’ll be amazed and what you can find and feel!
