OLIVER JONES – LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN

 OLIVER JONES, a Birmingham-based artist, present his new serie LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN, inspired on industry slogans and tag lines the works aim to re-asvertise a more thruth image of the flesh and the ritual undertaken to achieve these falsified visions that are too familiar. The artist describes his work as “a retort towards the way this improper image of the flesh is advertised, manipulated and exploited, it takes the form of large scale photo-realistic drawings using paper and chalk pastel as their fragile properties reflect and enhance the fragile nature of the flesh but more importantly the application is comparable to the way we apply and use products such as a derma roller, and touch and handle skin. It also aims to dispel the immediacy of the instant and technological portrayal of the exterior that we have become accustomed to due to the time taken during the process, application and completion of the piece.” The series is on display at GUSFORD GALLERY in Los Angeles until October 25.
