Seeing Things

Tom Morris

Timothy Emlyn Jones’ work challenges the way we look at things. He seems not to depict objects, but the space around them. Curiously, this makes the work very dramatic. It demands a reaction from its audience and then seems to respond itself. A series of Tim’s pictures is like a collection of statements which form a dialogue with anyone who looks at them. This very complex work addresses the subject of drawing in the simplest possible way.
