Dylan Jones' paintings vary in subject matter from show to show, but regardless of what he chooses to depict there always remains an interest in colour, composition and the simplification of form. The images Dylan creates have a relationship to the history of painting but more so to everyday life. Painting ‘en plein air’ and with models in the studio, Dylan's work is inspired by a variety of people and places, all rendered in thick, gestural and handmade oil paint.
