I did this during the winter. I was trying to capture that kind of cool blueish light that happens on grey days. I like the idea of a shimmer between physical and spiritual and that is why I'm using so much of the polka dot grid these days, It is a stand in for some other reality I glimpse while going about my everyday life. This is a mixed media artwork using collaged papers including vintage children's book pages and maps with archival mediums and varnish. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Polly

Polly Jones’s still life paintings are inspired by a sense of joy in the everyday. Her life journey thus far has been very serendipitous, with everything leading her to the life of an artist. All aspects of the work are pleasing, from the lovely objects she chooses, to the warm colors and fun perspectives. She paints at home in a former sun porch converted into a studio full of windows, which she shares with her husband who is also an artist. Her paintings depict the timeless and traditional subject of the still life in a contemporary way. Although the work has subtle art historical references, drawing inspiration from impressionists such as Henri Matisse, it feels very much her own. Polly incorporates mixed media and collage into the art using maps and pages of old books to create an added layer of meaning and dimension. The work feels like a satisfying memoir, made up of home, family, love, and an appreciation for the small things in life.
