  • Biography

    Andrew McNeile Jones paints narrative scenes that are washed with sunlight and deep shadows.  These are scenes where we sense that maybe a story is happening just out of the frame.  Clothes are draped across the backs of chairs, or hang from panelled shutters.  Shoes lie discarded on the floor. Books lie open on tables, glasses of wine are half-drunk.  Or people are suspended in moments of thought or decision.


    These compositions were inspired by his time working in the film business in the 1980s and ‘90s. Two areas left a strong impression: the use of lighting - ‘painting with light’, as the cameramen call it - and art direction, to design the scene in front of the camera.  Andrew employs both of these in his interior scenes.  He sets up the compositions very carefully, and either waits for the angle of the sun to be exactly right, or uses his own powerful lights to create the light and shadow.
