Artist Terri Jones

From the collection of the artist, Terri Jones

Jones has long been recognized as one of the few artists locally to focus on the engagement, activation, or manipulation of spatial perception as a presiding current in her work. Using minimal interventions into the existing architecture of various places, her installations affect the way viewers comprehend the orientation of the world and their place within it. Swirl reimagines a drawn line in sculptural form, piled one atop the other, spilling into the space inhabited by its audience. The line is both static and fluid in terms of its material: irrigation tubing and water combined with the notion of movement (hula-hooping).
