"As Above, So Below" is a new series of paintings and drawings by artist Jules Buck Jones that celebrates the magic of nature, from the marvelous and mysterious to the everyday and ordinary. In this new body of work, Jones weaves together large and energetic scenes of terrestrial and celestial life. The work is infused with invented mythology and narratives of creation, evolution, and extinction.

In these paintings and drawings, Jones employs his characteristic exaggerated brushwork and punchy color palette, and mixes painting styles and approaches from atmospheric, to graphic, to more rendered and resolved. The paintings are presented in a lyrical, yet direct visual vocabulary.

The images reverberate through repetitive mark-making and fractured patterns. Some of the paintings are done on shaped panels, which highlight Jones’ relationship with line work, simplifying complex scenes into flat, dynamic surfaces. Other works include large format watercolors of prehistoric romance and interactions between flora and fauna, and a series of unstretched canvas paintings depicting variations on creation myths and the resilience of the natural world.

"As Above, So Below" draws parallels between the cycles of life on earth and the grand gestures of the cosmos and questions what it means to be an animal on this planet.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through November 25.
