Ben Jones: New Painting & Drawing


This volume is produced in conjunction with Ben Jones' first solo show in Athens, Greece. Jones is a member of the famed Providence, Rhode Island-based art group Paper Rad, which has lent its lo-fi, DIY aura to everything from Internet hijinks and zines to gallery installations, music and music videos. He is also the author, with Frank Santoro, of the popular Cold Heat series. As a solo enterprise, Jones also makes paintings that, through the liberal use of fluorescents and pastels, convey a pop cartoon cheeriness that is belied by edgier psychedelic and Surrealist-inspired imagery. Dimly redolent of Keith Haring's Street Pop style, Jones' paintings combine color fields, cartoon-like characters, otherworldly scenes and what he has described as "meta-graffiti" in gouache, spray paint and pencil. Using a printing process that employs eight different spot colors, this volume preserves the powerful optical experience that is so particular to Jones' day-glo paintings. It also includes working drawings for installations and paintings, as well as exclusive print-only images that are a must-have for all fans of Paper Rad, PictureBox and the ever-lively Providence scene.
