Lloyd Novelle Jones
My name is Lloyd Novelle-Jones and I live in the Neath Valley in South Wales, I completed a degree in Fine Art at Exeter College of Art in 1985.
For me, depicting different landscapes, or plates, vases and flowers, is also a distillation of the memories and emotions associated with them.
Certain landscapes remind me of childhood, early impressions. With certain objects, I know who owned and loved them. In my mind’s eye, I see the tables at which they sat and the meals eaten off them. When an artist paints they are seeking to capture light, memories and the elusive truth about themselves and their place in the world.
“ A work of art that does not begin in emotion is not art. Emotion is the starting point, the beginning and the end. Craftsmanship and technique are in the middle “. ⁃ Paul Cezanne (1839-1906)
“I paint for the sole purpose of magnifying the privilege of being alive “ “All real works of art look as though they were done in joy” - Robert Henri (1865-1929)
I hope my work at least, in part, touches on these sentiments. Lloyd Novelle-Jones March 2019
