EXHIBITION OF NEW WORKS BY OTIS JONES TO OPEN
FEBRUARY 14 AT WILLIAM CAMPBELL CONTEMPORARY ART


FORT WORTH, TEXAS, January 23, 2009—An exhibition of works by renowned Texas artist Otis Jones will be on display February 14–March 21 at William Campbell Contemporary Art. An opening reception will be held Saturday, February 14, 6:00–8:00 p.m. The exhibition will include a dozen new works displaying Jones’s process-focused abstraction, which employs subtle textures and muted colors to create an atmosphere of depth and introspection.

A highly accomplished and innovative painter, Otis Jones combines multiple materials—both fine art and industrial—to produce nonrepresentational, meditative colorscapes. Intricate fields of color comprise layer upon layer of mixed media that have been built up, sanded down, painted, marked, or otherwise manipulated. By continually adding and removing surface elements, the artist exposes the compositional strata, and thus a visual history of the work’s evolution. The result is an invitingly tactile matrix of color, texture, and line that becomes its own inclusive object. This dynamic process invites viewers to share in the artist’s process and participate in the work’s physicality.
