Aging. Being a prune with dignity is not an easy task. Looking younger is a social obsession and there’s no need to be 60 to be all paranoid; you’ve already started to check you expression wrinkles not to be anything more than actually expression based. We look at Oliver Jones‘s work and we don’t see ourselves there. It’s not us. We won’t get to that. We have the face cream we need in our bathroom.
Those are actually paintings. Hyperrealistic and done in pastel, so true to reality they look like pictures. Jones shows in his work that between science and marketing now we can avoid humanity being carried by mother nature. He studies human body and how all this affects us aesthetically and psychologically. We’re fragile, and that’s what his painting reflect. This Birmingham (UK) artist’s mission is to challenge the world with his hyperrealism. You know what? It’s true, you’ll end up like this.
