'Laura Jones set the stage for a reinvigoration and a full scale revival of the still life. The intensity of her full throttle, polyamorous colour and the frontality of her compositions put botanical portraiture in a new context.'

Anna Johnson

 

Laura Jones (b. Sydney 1982) is best known for her paintings of flowers and for her series exploring the impact of climate change on the Great Barrier Reef. Jones's distinct visual language is defined by astute observation of colour and form. Her method involves rapidly drawing broad brushes laden with thin washes of oil paint onto the canvas to capture the essence of her subject, without the concern of a botanic artist for the minutiae of the painting.

Jones has completed residencies at Australian Museum’s Lizard Island Research Station, Heron Island Research Station, and Glasshouse Regional Art Gallery. Her recent trip to Antarctica will inspire her next body of work, to be shown at the gallery in 2020. Using drawings, photography and video compiled on the December 2018 trip, the artist will continue her investigation of the personal, scientific and political ideas and meaning behind humanity's impact on, and interaction with, the environment.

Jones has been a finalist in national art awards, including the Archibald Prize, the Portia Geach Memorial Award, the Kings School Art Prize, the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship and the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize. She holds a Bachelor of Arts (Asian Studies) from the University of Sydney and a Master of Art (Printmaking) from the College of Fine Arts, University of New South Wales.
