Robert Frank Books And Films: 1947-2017

Blue Sky Gallery, Portland, OR - To Feb 25

by Allyn Cantor

Part of the gallery’s 25th anniversary year celebration, Kathy Jones continues her exploration of anonymous figures in dark or brightly colored environments. Like Jacqueline Barnett, she studied printmaking and drawing at Stanford, where Manuel Neri and Frank Lobdell long prevailed. She also taught in Egypt. Jones’ paintings exude a dense, southern California tension between sunlight and shadow, metaphors perhaps for the relationships between the couples that inhabit these works.
