Alun Rhys Jones Artist Bio:
Sydney-based painter Alun Rhys Jones depicts the melancholy, alienation and detachment that lie behind the glossy veneer of consumerism. The images are clean and precise, while the painting style is physical, loose and expressive. Through the use of high key, luminous colour he exploits the language of fashion and advertising in order to subvert it. His painterly hand references his desire for a return of humanity and spirit to a consumerist world. In 2011 Alun Rhys Jones graduated from the National Art School with an Honours Degree in Painting and was Highly Commended in the John Olsen Prize for Figure Drawing. In 2012 he was a semi-finalist in the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and a finalist in the Waverley Art Prize, Whyalla Art Prize, Northern Rivers Portrait Prize and Albany Art Prize. Since graduating Alun has held three solo shows and been involved in numerous group shows. Alun Rhys Jones is represented by Lethbridge Gallery, Brisbane.
