Jules Buck Jones
Austin artist Jules Buck Jones draws, with an acute confidence, graphic fantastical images of hybridized animal forms. Influenced by ecological and biological concerns, Jones creates imagery of bizarre, fantastic happenings in nature, using the past, present and future as backdrops, mythology, fact, and fiction as fodder, and the animal kingdom as the vehicle.
Jules Buck Jones earned his Masters of Fine Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA in 2005 and an MFA in Painting at the University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX in 2008. During the summer of 2009 Jones was an artist in residence at the Everglades National Park in Homestead, FL. His work has been exhibited throughout Texas and his native Virginia. In 2008 the Austin Museum of Art acquired a large drawing of Jones' for their permanent collection.
