CATHERINE BOOKER JONES BIOGRAPHY
Catherine Booker Jones in an emerging southern artist based in Albany, GA. She graduated with her B.A. from The University of Alabama in 2011; although, she was not formally trained as a painter. Jones takes her cues from the history of Minimalist and Modernist painting, yet infuses a renewed sense of materials and color theory into her canvases. Jones employs a variety of mediums including gouache, acrylic paint, and oil pastel when creating her work, and usually a piece is developed from one bold color in the inception phase. Her fairly minimal compositions allow the colors and shapes to hold court in her pieces. She has a strong appreciation for the unexpected and aims to provide that experience in her work. Art has always been an intuitive process for Jones, and she continues to find art as a natural expression of how she perceives her surroundings. The resulting body of work offers balanced studies of color and shape that are deceptively effortless.
