David Rhys Jones

David Rhys Jones' artworks are a form of social documentary that record the mix of cultures and architecture found in the modern day metropolis. His work is based on journeys or site-specific locations and recorded using photographs and drawings; these are used to make sculptural, narrative work that reflects the experience of the journey.

 


David’s ‘Filmstrips’ are digital ceramic transfer on earthenware. Upon firing in a kiln the printed surface of the transfer is fused with the ceramic surface. The colour is tiny ground ceramic pigments which is lightfast and will be as bright in 100 years as they appear today.

David trained at Central Saint Martins and has exhibited widely including in the V&A Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts and the Courtauld Institute. In 2010 he was joint winner of the Jerwood Contemporary Makers Prize and his work is held in many private and public collections including the Tate.
