Exhibition of new work by Canford Staff

Canford artist Jay Jones is displaying her latest work in the Coldstream Gallery between 7th February and 4th March.   The exhibition, titled 'Spotted', will run from 7th February until 4th March and all in the Canford community are very welcome any time between 8:30am and 6pm each day.  

This series of Jay Jones’s work continues her love of repeating and re-interpreting old, found images and objects with their aura of nostalgia. She uses ink, layers of paint and varnish to gradually obscure her original sources and re-combines them to make new compositions. This re-combining and deliberate blurring and fading of the imagery suggests the incomplete experience of remembering. 
 
Motifs such as meticulously repeated spots, dogs and bright bursts of colour are reflections of Jay’s playful obsession with the process of interpreting and making. 

There will be drinks reception and private view of the exhibition for parents and friends on Friday 10th February between 5:30pm and 8pm.   

Please contact Jay direct if you would like to come and see the exhibition jj@canford.com
