Chris Jones on The Creators Project
Andrew Nunes reviews Chris Jones’ third solo show in New York on The Creators Project.
As images have become predominantly immaterial, the feeling of a book or magazine picture has become something precious, possessing a tactile and sensual quality that digital images can’t physically recreate. Creating 3D image-sculptures made almost exclusively out of magazine and almanac cut-outs, artist Chris Jones takes this facet and amplifies it exponentially, his work acting as the ultimate antithesis to the digital image. For his ongoing solo exhibition at Marc Straus Gallery, a motorcycle, a free standing ‘tower,’ and a series of apartment reliefs made of re-contextualized printed images fill up the gallery’s ground floor.
