barrangal dyara (skin and bones)
The Wiradjuri, Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones, works across a range of mediums, from printmaking and drawing to sculpture and film. He creates site-specific installations and interventions into space that use light, subtle shadow and the repetition of shape and materiality to explore Indigenous practices, relationships and ideas. Jones often works with everyday materials to explore relationships between community and the individual, the personal and public, historical and contemporary.
At the heart of Jones’ practice is the act of collaborating, and many projects have seen him work in conjunction with other artists and communities to develop outcomes that acknowledge local knowledge systems to connect particular sites with local concerns.
