Artist’s Statement

Patrick J. Jones

“I’m a figurative artist who paints in oils. I place my figures in imaginary lands to portray the human spirit without the distraction of the modern world. My recent paintings revolve around themes of love, lust, betrayal and revenge.

I believe core foundation drawing skills are essential for creating a confident artist’s hand, and I believe understanding gesture is the key to drawing the figure with style.”

Reviews:

‘The master artist makes it clear that getting the groundwork right is the key to great art…’

ImagineFX Magazine

‘…in the tradition and quite as powerful as the best of Boris, Frazetta, and I would add Howard Pyle. I can’t say enough here–his work reminds me at times of Jose Segrelles, one of the very finest fantasy illustrators ever…’ Bud Plant’s Art Books
