Visages/Vignettes by Wayson R. Jones

Resident Artist Gallery
Wayson R. Jones explores the idea of implicit association between imagery, memory, and emotion through manipulation of texture, shape, and color (or lack thereof). His new work evokes abstracted figures, imaginary landscapes, faces, and objects. They represent the "vignettes": subjective snapshots of events, persons, or objects in motion, and "visages": abstract faces combined with objects that symbolize parts of childhood.
