Inspired by nature & travel ~ Creating fictitious places & remodelling existing landscapes
Sherrie-Leigh Jones is an Artist/Printmaker creating fictitious places and remodelling existing landscapes through a process of collaging her own photographs taken on her travels, paintings, found imagery and printmaking techniques to make limited edition prints and originals.
Drawing inspiration from nature and travel, she is interested in creating a journey through vast, imagined landscapes; depicting landscapes that explore the ideas of ever changing seasons and environments, juxtaposing the real and fantastical, lush vegetation and mountainous formations exist to remodel previous environments.
She has a continuous body of work inspired by traditional Japanese and Chinese landscape paintings, prints and the kakejiku (aka kakemono), a Japanese hanging scroll, and in particular, Sansuiga (Japan) or Shanshui (China); paintings which depict an idealised landscape, primarily using the forms of mountains, rivers, clouds and mist.
Jones exhibits in the UK and Internationally. In 2018, she was invited to be a part of Woolwich Contemporary Editions, who work with the most exciting international contemporary printmakers to produce accessible, limited edition works exclusive to the Woolwich Contemporary brand which are available online and through a series of touring exhibitions. In 2015, Jones was awarded a Print Futures Award and in 2013, her SS13 collaboration with fashion label, To Be Adored (tba), featured on the front cover of Grazia China. Her work is held in Jeremy Cooper's Collection and private collections in the UK, France, Germany, New York and L.A.
