David W. Jones

Essentially a vehicle for personal development and understanding using various methods of collage, my work is informed by a mixture of experimental music, cinema, literature and the attitudes and subject matters of the early Dada and Surrealist movements. My specialist mediums include sound, video and automatic writing, each of which I practice around a continually developing portfolio of two-dimensional hand-collaged image-narratives. Essentially a spiritualist, I am determined to explore with personality and humor what could be construed as clichéd surrealist motifs – sexuality, death and the alternate lives we all lead in dreams – and my work can be characterized either by frequent dilettantish references to the religious, the esoteric and the apocalyptic or by the simple depiction of “skewed” realities, guided by the age-old maxim that truth is stranger than fiction.
