‘We are not to tell nature what she’s gotta be. … She's always got better imagination than we have.’ Richard Feynman
‘Cover and Keep Safe’ is Katherine Jones’ first solo exhibition at Rabley Contemporary Gallery. It includes new prints and watercolours. Jones is a fine art printmaker and painter. She combines traditional forms of intaglio and relief print (etching, collagraph and block-print) to produce her distinctive images. Fragile flora are covered with protective environments – each luminous and held in the surface of print and watercolour. Jones’ images play with the balance of botanical history and the metaphors of a fragile world.
Jones studied at Cambridge School of Art (1998-2001) and Camberwell College of Art (2001 – 2003). She has received many awards including the London Original Print Fair Prize at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2014, The
Printmaking Today prize at the Royal Society of Painter
Her work is held at the V&A prints and drawings collection, The V&A National Art library, Yale University Library, the House of Lords and in public collections worldwide.
