Matt Jones USA



Matt Jones (b. 1979) came of age in the Hudson River Valley in upstate New York. In 2003 he received his BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence, RI.  Subsequent to his graduation from RISD, he has aggressively continued to pursue multiple creative endeavors ranging from surface design for interiors to his better-known body of large abstract landscape paintings.


From an early age Jones has shown an acute sensitivity and reception to the psychological implications that one's surrounding physical landscape offers.  The correlation he draws between what is felt internally with where one resides externally is a primary theme of his stemming from early years spent in a charged yet isolated landscape.


M. Jones currently resides and works in Brooklyn, New York.
