From the artist:
“Within his artistic practice, Ronald L. Jones investigates the barriers between creatives and audiences by encouraging viewers to examine their environment through the lens of complex, existing societal constructs. Often unseen is a broader system of oppression and omission that effectively marginalizes African-Americans in institutions throughout the United States.
Black [Between The Lines] is an exhibition of sculptural pieces that serves to emphasize the framework of institutional spaces and the social implications of the lived experience within these structures. The works featured illustrate the systemic constructs that have moved through time, further polarizing and hindering lasting progress for the African-American community.
Ronald L. Jones is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist based out of Houston, Texas. His site-specific sculptures are exercises that investigate the usage of available space and how the environment is navigated by the public. Jones’ sculptural works have existed as both guerrilla installations and have been featured in exhibitions and collaborations with Houston Museum of African American Culture, Art League Houston, Galveston Arts Center, and BOX13 ArtSpace, among others.”
