Isabel Jones

Isabel Jones’ practice combines the fields of art and science. Using magnification and microscopes her drawing uncovers and reveals patterns and resemblances found in both nature and human forms. Microscopy and controlled rendering allow her to investigate the seen and unseen, unveiling the beauty in ordinary, often overlooked, matter and material. These compositions relate to concepts of growth and decline, of life and disease interlocking and parting. Using first-hand observations and an exact linear technique, Isabel draws with paint pens on two fine Japanese papers, Awagami and Bib tengujio. The process produces delicate and intricate drawings with ephemeral qualities. The microscopic elements have been manipulated to be both precise and at the same time ambiguous, viewers will question what they are looking at, the science of microscopy or the art of drawing.
