MARTHA T. JONES: NEW ABSTRACT PAINTINGS 2017-2019
Martha T. Jones is a full-time artist based in Williamsburg and Barhamsville, VA. Her new show at the Linda Matney Gallery in November 2019 features a series of large abstract paintings from 2017-2019. The work tests the ability of the abstract form to treat political and emotional concerns. Overlapping lines in superimposed layers of grid and network patterns inform the work. The color palette has developed from 2017 to 2019 to include work in which a brown ground contrasts with white and more colorful overpainting and the most recent work in which a yellow net pattern outlined in green is the primary visual element.
