Chris Jones Reviewed in The Jewish Week
The Jewish Week reviews the group show “Home(less)” at the Hebrew Union College, where Chris Jones’ work “After They Had Left” is featured.
There are no people visible in Chris Jones’ large mixed-media collage, “After They Had Left,” one of the first works of art visitors encounter in Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum’s current exhibit, “Home(less).”
Jones, a British sculptor, has created an assemblage of rooms and hallways, “furnished” with settings from magazine and book pages, mixing rustic, run-down and fading glamorous styles. It’s as if someone lifted the front façade of a many-floored house, leaving a geometric, urban dollhouse. He includes open windows with views, stairwells and many stories left untold.
