ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTOR
Philippa Jones has been a St. John’s based artist since 2009. Prior to moving here Jones completed a BA in Fine Art and an MA in Interactive Art & Design at University College Falmouth. Jones’ diverse art practice has included and sometimes combines printmaking, painting, pen and ink, animation, art games and interactive installations. Central to Jones’ work is the exploration of constructed realities, active myth making and a celebration of wonder and the inquisitive mind. In 2013 Jones was favourably reviewed by Gloria Hickey in C Magazine for her solo show ‘MIRIAD’ at The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery. The drawing ‘Miriad Island’ that featured in the exhibition was subsequently purchased by the National Gallery of Canada. Jones is represented by the Christina Parker Gallery.
