How Could I Presume?
Gabrielle Jones’ expressive and engaging abstract compositions typically represent her painting and drawing techniques. How Could I Presume? was made during a transitional period where Jones returned to an earlier medium of charcoal to explore and open up possibilities in her art practice. Often dealing with themes of Pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon where the mind creates patterns that are in fact not really there, Jones conveys a playful interplay of experimental gestural marks where the abstract arrangement of tone, lines and form emerge from the unconscious mind to create a fluid movement of pattern, depth and space.
