“Colour has always played a fundamental role in my painting. The importance of colour was impressed on me at an early stage, by the British artist Patrick Heron. My paintings explore and are specific to, the theme of ‘place and time’. The work is descriptive in essence, natural shape and form taken from the world at large. Ideas for paintings begin with preliminary studies ‘in situ’, working directly from landscape or primary sources” – Martyn Jones.

Cyan Crush II, 2018 is from a recent series of watercolours by contemporary artist Martyn Jones, that are expressions of the value he places on colour. Bright and often clashing colour has always played a fundamental role in Martyn Jones’ paintings. The artist has said that;

“The importance of colour as a vehicle of expression in painting was impressed on me at an early stage of my development, by the British artist Patrick Heron. My work mainly adheres to, and is inspired by, European traditions in painting. My deepest influences lie in the work of Miro, Braque, Kandinsky and Heron”.

Martyn Jones is a British contemporary painter who works from his studio in Cardiff, Wales. Jones, who was born in Aberaman, near Aberdare in Rhondda Cynon Taf, graduated with an M.A. in Fine Art from Chelsea School of Art, London and was awarded Junior Fellowship at Bath Academy of Art. Among his tutors were the British artists Adrian Heath and Patrick Heron. Jones’ works of art are symbolic and surrealist in nature and set amidst an eternal landscape.

Jones’ works of art have been compared with the work of Spanish Catalan Surrealist artist Joan Miró. Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and famously declared an “assassination of painting” in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting

During 2008 Jones staged his first major international solo exhibition “Overland” at the Robert Steele Gallery, Chelsea, Manhattan, comprising over forty works. The Robert Steele Gallery has represented Jones’ work, since 2004, in a variety of international and themed group exhibitions. In March 2010 Jones exhibited his second solo-show at the Robert Steele Gallery,

Jones’ work has been exhibited widely in UK, Europe and USA, including at the National Museums and Galleries of Wales, at the Wales International Centre and the Chrysler Building in New York City.

His work is represented in numerous public and private collections in Europe and the US.
