Wayne Jones, Mesa, AZ Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement As a WWII Navy veteran, father of 6, grandfather of 18, and great-grandfather of many more, I have had the honor and pleasure of great company through my family and friends…they remain the key stimulus for my artwork past and present. As I continue to learn and grow, they will always hold a special place in my heart and mind. I proudly and wholly dedicate my artistic endeavors to them.
Currently, I offer two separate veins of art workmanship…oil painting reproductions and computer-generated digital art. Some of my canvas oils are older than my own children, while others may be as recent as last year. Of course, my digital work represents a new milestone in artistic creation and discovery; the first batch has been named “Views in Time & Space,” and is mainly comprised of vector-based renditions, with variations in color thematics.
Known by many as a ‘poetic artist,’ I prefer to compliment some of my artwork with small passages from my personal poetry…often, I use my literary efforts to generate visual productions (and vice versa). Moreover, a keen interest in science fiction, fantasy, abstractions, and the ‘otherworldly’ lends to the conception and flow of my creative output. Above all, I desire to give that which will endure the test of time.
