Sal Jones’ work is a re-interpretation of the portraiture tradition in which she uses colour and mark making as tools to communicate with, producing emotionally charged works, often of fictional
personas. Unlike traditional portraiture there are no sitters and they do not represent a specific person but rather suggest an emotive state indicative of the social and cultural time we live
The paintings have been inspired by images of facial expressions appropriated from film, and the media, and exploit the conventions of cinematography; heavy cropping, close-ups, angled shots,
saturated colours, as well as the use of dialogue for titles.
