John Jones

'Untitled Graph Drawing No. 8'
Bewleys, Grafton Street

The chinoiserie of Bewley's provides the perfect backdrop for the geometric drawings of John Jones. Created on A2 graph paper, the final piece is the accumulation of many small marks with the finished product in this instance resembling the patterns on eastern textiles. Constrained by the formality of the pre-printed lines on the paper, they recreate the illusion of symmetry and harmony where it may not necessarily be.
