Australian printmaker, sculptor
(b. 1962, North Wales: arr. Aust. 1984)
Tim Jones' father was a woodwork teacher and restorer of gypsy caravans, from whom Jones learnt of Celtic history and Romany life, along with the traditional art of wood engraving. These have been the cornerstones of his printmaking, drawing and sculpture, which also show the acknowledged influence of the 18th century wood-engraver and naturalist, Thomas Berwick. Tim Jones has held numerous solo exhibitions since 1986, with a survey exhibition of his work Tim Jones: I've Been In Love Forever. A Survey Exhibition 1990-2005 being held at Stonnington Stables of Art, Deakin University. His work is represented in the collections of the Art Gallery of NSW, At Gallery of South Australia, National Gallery of Victoria, Queensland Art Gallery and various regional galleries. He has also exhibited in a number group exhibitions in Australia and the UK, including New Sculptors: New Directions Uni. Gallery, Uni. Melbourne, 1985 and British Society of Wood-engravers 51 Exhibition, which toured the UK in 1987.
