Ariane Bankes, freelance arts writer. Curator (with Paul Hills) of David Jones: Vision and Memory
David Jones was that rare thing, a complete artist, who brought a visionary quality to his depictions of the world around him. Whether drawing, engraving, painting or making beautiful inscriptions, he developed a highly original visual language, sustained by symbolism and underpinned by technical virtuosity. Yet far from being an outsider, he was in tune with the broad cultural climate of his times. Ariane Bankes will explore the main themes that run through the work of this most singular of British 20th-century artists.
