Jules Buck Jones (M.F.A., Studio Art, 2008)

Jules Buck Jones’ (M.F.A., Studio Art, 2008) first solo exhibition at Champion, Animal Again, is comprised of new works on paper, video, and a massive installation, all of which extend his investigation into the concepts of wildlife, natural science, mythology, and abstraction. Animal Again builds on Jones’ earlier work by bringing together both drawing and sculpture – choppier, heavier marks abstract the mask-like animal forms.

Animal Again will be on view from February 25 through March 19, 2011.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 11-6 PM.
