Port Melgan, 2018 is from a recent series of monumental oils 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”.
