Place, moment and memory inhabit Lisa Jones’ latest series of beautiful works. In her new exhibition – Milky Eye – Jones explores the notion of drawing as an act of thinking and doing. Through this act, Jones is able to discover: place through erasure, observation and mapping; moment, having the drawing bear witness to the human presence through the bodily movements that create the marks; and memory, the erasure of the marks as a reflection of the dissolving of time and place.
Each drawing has a starting point from her personal collection of maps and is a continuation of her research into the relationship between the body and place. These drawings are a palimpsest of maps. They are cultural markers of place, time and history.
Lisa Jones is a Sydney based artist originally from London whose contemporary art practice explores drawing, sculpture and video. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, individually and in collaborative projects in institutional exhibition spaces, artist run initiatives and commercial galleries. Her drawings have been acquired by the Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Prize and the Macquarie University Art Gallery.
