"Wayson R. Jones is a 2-D artist that creates using a variety of materials including paints, pastels, canvas, paper, and wood. Much of his work is influenced by the ‘50s and ’60s TV and movies of his childhood. His monochromatic works are stark and show a deep contrast between solid black and blinding white hues. The presence of his works is weighed by their scale, texture, and use of contrast. His pieces in this format are typically divided horizontally and filled with various gels, pigments, or other materials in a spontaneous and often reductive way that build up the composition. His work, while often abstract in form, also embodies elemental themes such as the earth, sky, planets, or bodies that seek to evoke the vastness and wonder of the world.
