Treasured Alan Jones and the Young Curators

Treasured the Ideas and Process of Alan Jones
Presented by 3:33 Projects and Young Curators from Abbotsleigh and Hornsby Girls High

3:33 Art Projects created the innovative art program, the Young Curators, to partner with secondary schools to support education in the arts and provide unique experiences for the students, the school and the broader community while supporting Australian artists. The program connects students with a leading Australian visual artist to host an art exhibition at their school, working as a curatorial team to research, develop, select and stage the exhibition, providing valuable insights into various perspectives of the creative art industry.

The atist Alan Jones worked with the Young Curators from Abbotsleigh and Hornsby Girls High School and works were selected for this exhibition by the Young Curators after visiting his studio.

Alan Jones is best known for his figurative work and self-portrait paintings. His artistic practice also includes landscape painting, sculpture and printmaking. Jones works across a broad spectrum of mediums and takes a personal approach to his subject matter. His work explores notions of identity, and he has a particular interest in his colonial past. Jones aims to communicate the intricacies of human connections and how his roots subsequently influence his work.

Alan Jones is represented by OLSEN Gallery Sydney
