Reece Jones

Reece Jones explores notions of truth, representation and actuality by composing invented drawings which follow particular processes of erasure and re-definition. References include: Cinema, Land Art, the American Sublime and Folk Mythology. He is a lecturer in Fine Art at City & Guilds of London Art School. Reece was one of the founding members of Rockwell, a project space in Hackney from 2002-2007 and recently curated The Hair of the Dog at Block 336, Brixton and Terminalia at Charlie Smith, London.

Reece lives and works in London.
