INSIGHTS - Oliver Jones: On Pastel
The New Art Gallery Walsall
Mon 07 Dec
Working from his home studio, artist Oliver Jones shares how he creates his large-scale photorealistic pastel drawings. Focusing on the detail of an eye, he talks about his process of building layers, pushing and pulling the pastels around the surface and live mixing in order to work both reactively and fluidly. 

Oliver Jones is an artist based in Shropshire. He is known for his drawings, which consider how the media advertises, manipulates and exploits imagery of flesh. In 2016 he was commissioned by the The New Art Gallery Walsall to create new work. ‘Divine’, a large multi-panel work, emblematic of a religious altarpiece, which took the studio of the tattoo artist as its subject.

Duration: 36 minutes 24 seconds
