light and GLOOM


  • Neon Parlour 791-793 High Street Thornbury, VIC, 3071 Australia (map)

For many decades Clive Jones has worked behind the scenes as a Film and TV art
director and scenic artist, creating the artifice and illusion that illustrate our cultural
narratives. With light and GLOOM, his first public exhibition since 2010, he turns his
focus to personal reflections on the modern world.
For Clive, the continued appeal of traditional painting is its ability to represent imagined
subjective narratives to a wider audience. These paintings are an invitation into the
private theatre of the artist’s mind.
light and GLOOM explores what it means to be human in a fast moving technological age,
provoking us to consider the importance of painting in a world of instant
documentation.

Exhibition: Wednesday 7 March – Sunday 25 March 2018
Opening night: Thursday 8 March / 6-9pm with Performance by Cookin’ on 3 Burners and Captain Ruin.
