Through work that synthesizes traditional training with contemporary realism, Australian artist Emily Jones explores themes of light and life, isolation and connection, joy and melancholy, and identity and place. Her urbanscapes conjure a sense of setting without being too specific about their original context; inviting the viewer to establish their own story.
Jones was born in Sydney and now lives in Hobart, Tasmania where she focuses on her commission and exhibition work and teaches art. She has exhibited throughout Australia and New York. In 2014, Jones studied in London and at Italy’s Florence Academy of Art. This is the second consecutive year that Jones' work has been selected by the jury for the Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition.
