“Flowers for donald is a series of digital collage work begun in the days following the 2016 U.S. election. The work borrows the symbolic potency of flowers to act as anchor points of protest, memorial, and reflexive connotations of enduring beauty within the traditions of art history. The series is designed to challenge the role and function of art itself in politically turbulent times and borrows from early century European Dadaist strategies of appropriation, collage, and aesthetics of absurdity to reflect instability in political and media environments.
Jones was named a 2018/19 FOAM Talent for the series Flowers for donald and Countries Glorious. The accompanying exhibition was shown in Amsterdam, New York, London, and Frankfurt in 2019. The series was self-published as a limited edition artists’ book, Flowers for donald and Countries Glorious, in December, 2018. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.”
