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.
Jones describes his own work so;
“My work is descriptive in essence – natural shape and form taken from the world at large. My paintings have been described as capturing a natural ambiguity, but that ambiguity should not be construed as being manufactured in any way. Within each image an open invitation is challengingly presented to the percipient. It is difficult to determine when a painting is finished, but usually I instinctively know when that moment has arrived. I can say more often than not, my paintings finish themselves.”
His work is widely collected and can be found in many private and public collections.
