Chisenhale Gallery announce their 2022 exhibition with Rachel Jones as part of their 2022-2023 commissions programme.
March – May 2022
Working with painting, installation and performance Rachel Jones examines ways of expressing that which can be seen and sensed rather than uttered. When painting, Jones often repeats symbols and textures, creating associative, even familial, relationships between works varying in scale, from the monumental to the hand-held and jewel-like. In a recent series of oil pastel compositions on paper or canvas, Jones repeats the motif of obscured teeth and the orifices that contain them. Only partially legible, these forms signal both symbolic and literal entry points to the interior self.
Rachel Jones lives and works in London, UK. Selected exhibitions include: Blessings Pon Blessings, Harlesden High Street (2021); A Focus on Painting, Galerie Thaddeus Ropac, London; Rachel Jones & Nicholas Pope, The Sunday Painter, London; A Sovereign Mouth, 12.26, Dallas (all 2020); Red Shaped Mouths, The Chinati Foundation, Marfa; The Artist Dining Room | Faith Ringgold, Guest Projects, London (2019); Mad Dogs, Jupiter Woods, London; Winter in America III, Mom’s Favorite Space, Los Angeles; MYCO-TV, 7 Rue de Juvisy, Paris (all 2018.) Jones is the recipient of the Andre Dunoyer de Segonzac Hon RA Prize from Royal Academy Schools, London (2019); and the Machin Painting Prize (2018).
