Zebedee Jones / Bio
The paintings by Zebedee Jones are built up by adding and scraping off various layers of paint. They look more sculptural objects as the edges are bordered by thick curls of paint. Color is an important subject but also the attention paid to the skin of the painted surface. His paintings look monochrome at first but show subtle differences in color later. These subtle shades of color along with the highly tactile surface give the paintings a strong expression.
Jones was born in 1970 in London, where he still lives and works. After his study at Camberwell College of Art and later Chelsea College, he started showing at Karsten Schubert in 1995, later at Waddington Galleries and recently at Agnews Gallery in London. He had also several shows at Danese in New York. Since 2001 he exhibits regularly at Slewe Gallery.
