    Alongside his characteristic alphabet of shapes, colour plays a huge role in Jones’ work. Jones employs a library of signature colours including vibrant shades of turquoise, ultramarine, violet, and viridian, creating sensory paintings you can almost taste. Notably, many of Jones’ works feature Chromatic Black, a shade which doesn’t contain any black pigment in it, instead created by mixing dark versions of other colours, which may include red, green, and blue.

    Martyn Jones is a contemporary painter who works from his studio based in Cardiff, Wales, U.K. Jones graduated M.A. Fine Art, at Chelsea School of Art, London and was awarded Junior Fellowship at Bath Academy of Art. Among his tutors were the British artists Patrick Heron and Adrian Heath.

    Although Jones’ works are abstract, he finds the inspiration for them in the real world. Jones uses his own “personal alphabet of shapes and colour” along with a stream of consciousness process, making his works both unique, and instantly recognisable.

    In Jones’ words, “I try to create a sensory experience through my work, the visual is obvious, but sound, touch, smell and even taste are important in the kind of synaesthesia that Kandinsky, Heron and Miro visually communicate, so that a work might suggest more than what is seen. I celebrate vibrations or sound through the use of colour in painting. However, I sometimes work in silence, listening to the noise of the natural world and this again informs the shapes and colours that I use.”

    Jones’ works often focus on expansive shapes, and contrasts between fragile chalk lines and bold, saturated colours.

    As the artist says “I think ultimately, I am searching for something unobtainable, a calm tranquillity, an impossible form of transcendence, a perfect existence and that is what brings me back to the canvas.”
